Similar to Honda being seen cooking something with the Civic Type R, his French archive is about to get an update. We strongly believe that this is the hotter Megane Trophy-R version judged by the new hood containing a scoop with a pair of vents on either side. It looks a bit strange because there seems to be a layer of hiding on top of the hood to hide the design.
Although not immediately obvious, there is some plastic cover to finish in almost the same white shade as the rest of the body has to use on both sides of the hot hatch. We do not see any changes at the back, but that could be because Renault had not installed all the production pieces on this prototype. Of course, there is also the possibility that the R-Trip will carry the back end of the variation that is not expected.
If the new Megane RS is like his predecessor, he is likely to lose serious weight as the old one has managed to cut 100 kilograms (220 pounds) in his attempt to be the car. fastest wheel drive production in the Nürburgring. That was nearly five years ago, when the old one came out without the rear seats and less decaying material. He also lost the radio system and the air conditioning system in the process, while the brakes and the battery were lighter than what other Meganes had.
We must wait to see if the new R-Trophy is as unique as the one that is ahead, which was limited to just 250 units for the whole world. An official disclosure is expected to take place later this year, possibly in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Are we looking at a new FWD ‘circle holder? Time will say.
