Renault have just announced their latest flagship hot hatch the Megane Renaultsport 275 Trophy, and you dont just get an extra number over the 265, there are a bunch of new upgrades too . The 275 gets the Cup Chassis and a limited slip diff as standard, with optional adjustable Ohlins dampers and 19-inch black wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.
But wait there’s more, you also get a carbon fibre tipped titanium exhaust system which unleashes a few extra horses as well as a whole lot more noise, which is what we all really want. Inside, you get a mix of Alcantara covered Recaro bucket seats and steering wheel. This model is only available with a six-speed manual gearbox. No word on the NZ price, but we can expect it to be somewhere in the region of 60K.
