Unveiled at the 2005 Paris Motorshow, the Renault Megane Trophy was built for a one-make race series, taking in 8 European race tracks, with 16 races in total between 30 cars.

The powerplant of the 2005 Renault Megane Trophy is based on the V6 unit fitted to Vel Satis, it was developed in collaboration with Nismo, Nissan’s motorsport department, and adapted for competition to produce over 320 bhp, featuring a semi-dry sump.

In all, the Megane Trophy's power-to-weight ratio of just 2.9kg/bhp, as well as wind-tunnel developed aerodynamics, made the Renault Megane Trophy comparable to some GT racers. And the top speed of over 155 mph (250kph) put it right up with the famous DTM race cars.

Renault's research into aerodynamics has resulted in a split front bumper that channels into two tunnels leading out behind the front wheels, creating a Venturi effect that pins the Megane Trophy to the ground. Stability at the back comes from a diffuser and spoiler, both fully integrated in the Trophy's profile. The overall downforce generated gives the Renault Megane Trophy a level of handling similar to a Le Mans endurance prototype.
