    Default Megane Trophy in Aus - Oct 05

    G'day Guys,

    Just got of the phone with the local Renault dealer as I have been thinking about buying a 2L Megane 3 door and during our conversation he informed me that the Megane 225 Trophy 2 door was due to be released to the australian press later this month.

    He didn't know all the details but said it would have charchoal colored 18 inch wheels standard and feature all the revised steering and suspension mods.

    Recieved the following email from the dealer


    *2 lt turbo at 165 kw
    * 6 spd close ratio gearbox
    * Race tuned chassis with retuned damper settings.
    * 18 inch 12 spoke alloys running dunlop sport maxx tyres
    * charcoal interior trim

    Price is to be $42,990 plus on roads

    Press drive day late in September.
    Cars to be available early to mid October for dealerships
    ** each new car to include FREE MURCOTT DRIVING COURSE

    I think I may have found my new car

    Sorry if this is old news...

    in. I did mine two days ago and had an absolute ball

    Sounds like it will be the Megane 225 with Cup suspension option rather than an actual Megane Trophy which is the limited edition version. Probably no difference in them, apart from the UK Trophy LE having the Limited Edition plaque :-)

    Also I thought the driving course was offered to ALL new RenaultSport buyers at present, it just took a long time for them to sort things out. Probably to allow time for the cars to be run in.

    All new Megane 225's will have the Cup suspension standard.

    The 3 door will have the 18 inch wheels, don't know about the newly built 5 doors.

    I think he mentioned the 3 door would be named the Trophy or Cup???

    Either way, atleast we can now get the 225 3 door, can't quite understand why they waited so long as now they will have stiff opposition from the Astra Turbo Coupe....

    I was told by Ian Mclean when they first came out, that they wanted to match the WRX 5 boor version so it would appeal to faimlies..... but i think they missed the mark, cause the people who wanted a sports car did not like the 3 door.

    I would have been happy with a 5 door cup, but will be very happy with a 3 door version .... they are HOT !

    i popped in to visit my local dealer last Saturday and he also said expect the "cup"/"trophy" version later this year. definitely coming but he could not confirm if 5door version will be available or a mix of 3 and 5 doors will be brought in. he said there is definitely some sort of "cup" version coming and details are not finalised and confirmed with the dealers.

    he said there could be an evaluation model in the country already and an announcement in the Sydney motorshow a very likely possibility.

    he also said expect a $2-2.5k premium on the std megane, which is now $39,990 + ORC ($44k approx total)

    The signature colour for the RSM Cup is non metallic Capsicum Red.

    There are other metallic colours here though. Just the usual colours from the RS Megane range, hopefully the link works:

    Hmmmm yummy..

    Hey Richard - put me first in line for the Fuego if you are going to sell it. Have been getting very sentimental about the old girls, and can see another one in my future
