Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy-R: 0% vet, 100% pret

Kort geleden liet Renault ons al even kennismaken met de extreme Mégane Trophy-R, via een record op de Nürburgring Nordschleife. Vandaag doen ze alle details over de tot 500 stuks gelimiteerde geradicaliseerde Mégane uit de doeken.

Laten we beginnen met de hierarchie bij Renault: er is de gewone R.S., met 280 pk, en een Trophy, een hardcore-versie van de R.S. die iets lichter is en 300 pk uit de geblazen 1.8 haalt. De Trophy-R is het halo-model, dat hier weer boven zit, en waarvoor alle registers zijn opengetrokken. Het vermogen is met 300 pk/400 Nm hetzelfde, maar de focus ligt op dure en lichtere materialen. De Trophy R.S. weegt 1.306 kg (minimum unladen kerb weight) en is hiermee 130 kg lichter dan de reguliere R.S.

De Trophy-R heeft standaard 19 inch wielen, met hierin aan de voorkant 355 mm schijven (optioneel: 390 mm carbon-keramisch). De auto heeft een handgeschakelde zesbak, die met een goede coördinatie de 0-100 km/u in 5,4s klaart. De  topsnelheid ligt op 262 km/u, en in de 3e versnelling doet u slechts 2,9s over de tussensprint van 80 naar 120 km/u.

Voor de gewichtsbesparing werd er onder andere een andere achteras gemonteerd, die maar liefst 38 kg lichter is dan standaard. Ook de wielen schaven per stuk 2 kg van het gewicht, de carbon motorkap weegt slechts 8 kg, en de titanium Akropovic-uitlaat scheelt 6kg. Zelfs op de dikte van de ruiten, de ruitenwisser achter, en de diameter van het infotainmentsysteem werd bespaard. Een achterbank ontbreekt uiteraard ook, maar de achterportieren kunnen nog wel open. Op de optielijst staan onder andere carbon wielen, een lithium accu, en een 'dynamische luchtinlaat'. We weten niet precies wat we ons daarbij moeten voorstellen overigens...

De prijs? €55.000 in Frankrijk, zonder exotische opties. In Nederland mag u hier nog wat BPM bijrekenen. Uiteindelijk zullen, als gezegd, slechts 500 exemplaren worden uitgeleverd. het is overigens de vierde Megane R.S. waarmee een record voor voorwielaandrijvers werd neergezet, Renault zet de tijden even op een rijtje:

  • 2008: Mégane R.S. R26.R in 8:17. 
  • 2011: Mégane R.S. Trophy in 8:07.97.
  • 2014: Mégane III R.S. Trophy-R in 7:54.36.
  • 2019: The new MEGANE R.S TROPHY-R in 7:40.100
