R.S 300 Trophy

Renault’s ultra-sporty Megane R.S has been given the Trophy treatment and is headed to SA. Trophy models offer several exclusive Renault Sport features including an updated sporty design, impressive performance, and a variety of unique R.S equipment.

Sporty styling

The R.S. 300 Trophy features a distinctive Sporty front bumper with an F1 style blade flanked by the unmistakable Trophy insignia, Sharkfin antenna, updated C-shaped LED headlights and rear lights, a specific rear diffuser, an intelligent exhaust pipe with dual sound valve system and Jerez Diamond Cut 19-inch alloy wheels with red inserts. This special edition model is available in Pearl White, Liquid Yellow, and Orange Tonic only.

 Inside story

The interior is fitted with Alcantara seats that feature red top stitching as well as a double-diamond steering wheel that is finished in leather and home to paddle shifters. An aluminium gear lever knob and handbrake gaiter complete the sporty touchpoints. The interactive Renault Multimedia system includes a seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB as well as smartphone replication via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Under the bonnet

Giving the R.S 300 Trophy the go to match the show is a four-cylinder 1.8-litre turbocharged engine that offers 221kW at 6 000rpm and 420Nm at 3 200rpm. This allows the R.S 300 Trophy to sprint to 100km/h in just 5,7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 260km/h. A six-speed dual-clutch EDC gearbox ensures seamless power delivery and features launch control and multiple downshift capability. Multi Sense Driving modes allow the driver to choose from three modes at the flick of a button.

Built for driving

Exclusive equipment includes advanced technology such as bi-material front brakes with red Brembo callipers that ensure optimum braking performance. The Cup chassis is home to stiffer suspension and a Torsen mechanical limited slip differential. Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyres ensure exceptional grip and responsiveness.

4Control technology ensures outstanding agility through tight turns and impressive cornering stability at higher speeds. At low speeds, the system turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels and at speeds of over 60km/h or 100km/h in Race mode, all four wheels turn in the same direction, ensuring optimised roadholding.

The iconic Megane R.S 300 Trophy represents a more track focused version of the Megane R.S hot-hatch family that has been built for extreme performance and amplified driving pleasure. Only 55 units of this limited-edition model will be making their way to South Africa.


The Megane R.S. Trophy is sold with a five-year/90 000km service plan and a five-year/150 000km mechanical warranty.
