Renault’s New Mégane Trophy makes its UK debut alongside its hardcore road-going sister Mégane Renaultsport R26.R in a one-two that is guaranteed to wow the crowds at Autosport International, the world’s biggest motorsport show, on 8th-11th January, 2009. The cars join the Clio Renaultsport Cup race car, Formula Renault 2.0 single-seater car and Clio Renaultsport R3 rally car as stars of the Renault Sport UK stand, which once again hosts a combined display with the Renault-backed Super One Karting series in Hall 6, stand 6210.

New Mégane Trophy is the latest racing superstar produced by Renault Sport Technologies and will feature at World Series by Renault events in 2009. The UK round will be held on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit on 4th/5th July. The Mégane’s mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine now produces a whopping 360hp at 7,200rpm, while rear-wheel drive and a six-speed sequential gearbox offer a superb racing package.

The limited-edition Mégane Renaultsport R26.R has raised the bar for hot hatches with its amazing performance level enabling it to set a new lap record for front-wheel drive production cars at the legendary 13-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit. With a weight saving of 123kg over the Mégane Renaultsport 230 R26 and an accordingly revised technical set-up, Mégane Renaultsport R26.R is a truly astounding car. Only 450 will be produced with 230 of those destined for the UK market.

Maybe VW can russel up a road going version of the scirocco GT24, There was a rear engined Golf concept a year or so ago so who knows.
