Official Details: RenaultSport Megane Trophy 265

Renault has just released full details and pictures of their newly introduced Trophy version of their RenaultSport Megan 250. It features an additional 15hp from its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, for a total of 265hp. This takes about a tenth of a second off of its previous 0 to 62 mph time, which is now recorded at 6.0 seconds flat (instead of 6.1). Remember, this is a front-wheel-drive car, so numbers like these are really solid.

Top speed is also up by 2 mph, totaling out at 159 mph. Other standard features include Recaro seats with yellow seatbelts and 19-inch black Speedline alloys with red detailing. There will only be two exterior color choices, both metallic: Liquid Yellow or Black. Because of engines upgrades, the Trophy is now the most powerful Megan yet, with only 500 units set to be produced (50 of which are right-hand drive for the U.K.). Official U.K. pricing starts at £27,820 and this includes access to all RenaultSport's U.K. 2012 track days.
