Renault’s powered-up Megane RS 275 lands in Australia this week, entering as the range’s new hero model. That is, until the extra-special Trophy-R arrives.

Until then, the RS 275 Trophy is here as a limited-edition special, priced at $52,990 plus on-road costs.

Revealed in May, the 275 gets a power boost to 202kW, marking a slight increase over the 195kW offered with the ‘regular’ RS 265.

Powered by the same 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine, the RS 275’s torque tune holds steady at 360Nm, available again from 3000rpm.

Acceleration figures are unchanged however, with the RS 275 listing a 0-100km/h time of 6.0 second flat. Fuel consumption is listed at 7.5 l/100km.

The new special’s outputs mark another evolutionary power increase for the current Megane RS generation, with the earlier 250 model offering 184kW and 340Nm.

Tweaks for the RS 275 include an Akrapovic titanium exhaust and Bridgestone Potenza tyres wrapping the 19-inch Speedline Black Turini alloy wheels.

The 275 is built on the Cup chassis and also packs a limited-slip differential.

As with the wider Megane range, the RS 275 also gets new headlights and Renault’s new wing-like upper grille design.

There’s also ‘Trophy’ branding on the front blade, graphics down the body sides and a chequered flag print to the doors.

In the cabin, there’s Recaro buckets, Alcantara trim, contrast stitching and an alloy shift knob.

The Megane RS 275 is limited to 100 units, priced from $52,990. Those still in the hunt for a special model after that run is exhausted will have to wait for the Trophy-R to arrive in the coming months.

That one will be even more limited, restricted to just 50 units.
