In-game descriptionEdit

"The Mégane Trophy car, with aggressive looks further enhanced by gull-winged doors."

Renault has been involved in one-make races in various forms since the 8 Gordini in the 1960s. Starting in 2005 they began to host the Mégane Trophy races, under their World Series. This car was developed to partake in this Mégane Trophy from 2006, in line with the model change to the 3rd generation Mégane.

The engine is mid-mounted on a tubular frame, with a special body that is made in the image of the Mégane. Only a few parts, such as the headlights and rear lights, are actually shared with the production version. The styling - created by aerodynamic parts such as the extremely wide front and rear wings - and the diffusers, big enough to scare away DTM machines, are impressively aggressive. Even the doors are gull-winged for that extra sensational touch.

That said, the silhouette and characteristic details of the original still remain, and the car still looks like a 3rd generation Mégane coupé. The power unit mounted in the 955 kg body is a 3.5 L Nissan V6 tuned to 355 BHP, and the transmission is a 6-speed, 2-pedal MT with tiptronic gear change.

The suspension and brakes are completely racing spec, and these cars are only delivered to those entering racing competitions. As you could imagine, there are many fans who have voiced a desire for a road spec model with this styling to be released.

TriviaEdit

  • This car was originally planned to appear in Gran Turismo 5 using the 2009 specification of the car.
    • The game's internal filenames in the car's all appearances is "megane_trophy_09", referring to the original plan.
  • The car is the cover car of the Anniversary/Limited Edition of Gran Turismo 6, in place of Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) '14.
  • In real life, the car is placed on classes equivalent to GT4 class in championships such as Britcar (Class 2), International GT Open (GT Lights class) and Euro Series by Nova when not used as an one-make racer, which justifies the car's placement in Gr.4 class.
