Renault Megane RS Trophy-R sets new Nürburgring record

By CARSIFU | 23 May 2019

MUNICH: The Renault Megane RS Trophy-R set a new record and reference time on 5 April, 2019 for a front-wheel-drive production compact car on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring.

It covered the 20.600 km in 07’40’’100, and the official whole lap length of the Nordschleife 20.832 km in 07’45’’389.

The Renault Megane RS Trophy-R will be sold this year as an exclusive limited edition of a few hundred units.

While the Megane RS Trophy-R uses the same 300hp engine seen in the RS Trophy car, its faster speed is due to a weight reduction (up to 130kg), better aerodynamics and chassis development.
