To allow customers to benefit more fully from the car's dynamic qualities, Renault Sport's engineers have worked extensively on Mégane R.S.'s powerplant to extract an extra 10 horsepower. The two-litre petrol engine consequently boasts 275hp, and peak power is reached at 5,500rpm. At the same time, maximum torque (360Nm) is available across a broad rev-band, from 3,000 to 5,000rpm.

Despite this additional power, fuel consumption and emissions have been carefully contained to stand at just 7.5 litres/100km* and 174g of CO2/km respectively.

Renault Sport and Akrapovič, the manufacturer of benchmark exhaust systems for motorcycles and performance cars, have marked their association with the standard fitment of a titanium exhaust system. In addition to benefiting from the lighter weight of titanium, Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy also features a specific, more raucous bark that is sure to appeal to those who appreciate sporty engine notes.
