Renault Roadshow at BSC 007

On Saturday, we tagged along with the members from the RS Collectif on a short convoy from the Renault showroom in Petaling Jaya to Bangsar Shopping Centre, where TC Euro Cars had a roadshow showcasing a lineup of Nissan-Renault Alliance models such as the Murano, Elgrand, Clio RS 200 EDC and the facelifted Koleos, among others.

Also present at the roadshow is Renault’s latest addition, the Megane RS 265 Trophy Edition which is a tribute to a great achievement at the Nordschleife, where the car managed to set a lap time of 8′ 08″, beating the record held since 2008 by Mégane R26.R, which was 8′ 17″.

What differs the Trophy Edition with the normal Megane RS 265 Cup is that the Trophy Edition gets an exclusive Sirius Yellow Metallic ID body paint and red F1-style front blade to go with another exclusive addition, the gloss black 19-inch Speedline alloys with red outline wrapped in Ultra-High Performance Bridgestone Potenza RE050A rubbers. The interior maintains its Recaro seats and RS monitor that displays lap times as well as vital vehicle information.

Powered by the same 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with 265 hp and 360 Nm of torque to play with, the Megane RS 265 Trophy Edition still has the sublime Cup Chassis, Mechanical Limited Slip Differential, Brembo Brakes and Perfohub. The Renault Mégane RS 265 Trophy Edition retails at RM 244,252 (on the road without insurance).

The showcase, which ended yesterday also highlights the alliance’s zero-emission vehicles – the Nissan LEAF and the Renault Fluence Z.E. Both cars run purely on electricity and have been used extensively by the company to educate Malaysians about the prospects of electric mobility. On the other hand, visitors were given the chance experience all the vehicles during the four-day roadshow.
