2015 RENAULT MEGANE RS275 TROPHY-R

KEY FACTS

  • One of 250 worldwide and 50 in Australia, this Renault Megane RS275 Trophy-R is a rare and thrilling lightweight hot hatch.
  • A 275hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged motor provides power and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
  • With track-derived engineering coursing through its veins, this was the fastest front-wheel drive production car in the world at release; capable of 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds, it lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:54.36.

EQUIPMENT AND OPTIONS

  • This is a track-focused machine, with attention paid to lightweight construction and paring back unnecessary components, and it weighs around 1280kg.
  • This was achieved by removing the rear seats, stripping away much of the car’s sound deadening and fitting a pair of lightweight Recaro seats for the driver and passenger.
  • Furthemore, the radio and air-conditioning system were removed, and a simplified centre console was fitted.
  • As with the 275 Trophy, the Trophy-R is equipped with a titanium Akrapovic exhaust system.
  • The RS275 Trophy-R sits low on red 19-inch Speedline alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber.
  • The car remains original and unmodified, and is sold with all delivery books and accessories.

CONDITION

  • Never crashed or damaged, the car is in excellent condition and all bodywork and panels are straight and true.
  • The factory-applied white paintwork is excellent, with no blemishes or marks noted by the seller.
  • The simple and purposeful interior is in superb order, with some minor marks on the seat backs, slight signs of use on the suede-trimmed steering wheel, but no other perceptible wear and certainly no damage.
  • Mechanically sound, the car presents no electronic errors or warnings.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • At 12,829 km, Barry Bourke Renault carried out a minor service.
  • In December 2016, Waverly Renault performed a minor service on the car at 9,442 km.
  • The Megane has only required routine regular maintenance including oil and filter changes.
