Ouch. Renault has revealed the price of its fearsome Megane RS Trophy-R and it ain’t cheap.

The Renault Megane RS Trophy-R will be priced at $74,990 making it, says Renault, one of the most affordable Trophy-Rs in the world (that’s good to know).

There’s just one catch, price or no price, the Trophy-R has sold out, but you can put your name on a waiting list for the next batch. Go to www.renault.com.au/megane-rs-trophy.

But wait, there’s more . . . Australia is also getting a solitary example of the Megane RS Trophy-R Record Breaking version, with the same spec as the Megane that set the lap record at the Nürburgring earlier this year.

Only 30 of the cars will be offered for sale and our example is set to go to auction in early 2020.

“The strong customer interest in the Megane RS Trophy-R is testament to the place this Renault Sport prepared vehicle has within the Renault family and in the hearts of car enthusiasts across Australia,” Renault Australia’s Anouk Poelmann said.

“The Renault Megane RS Trophy-R is the next chapter in Renault’s extensive history in world motorsport and brings to the Australian roads the technologies and expertise Renault Sport has developed on the racetrack.”

All is not lost however as the lesser Megane RS Trophy (minus the -R) a manual change is available for $52,990 while the auto is going for $55,990.

And, believe us, there’s nothing shabby about the way this or any Megane RS goes.

Renault says Megane RS Trophy (due late 2019) and Megane RS Trophy-R (due early 2020) will complete the Megane Renault Sport family in Australia which currently includes: Megane GT, Megane GT Line, Megane RS Sport and Megane RS Cup Chassis.
