"But I do see a lot of them at Trackdays at the end of the month"

There is only 50 trophys in the UK so you would be hard pushed to see lots of them at track days!

RS500 and Scirocco R's are nice cars but they can't hadle very well. the RS500 is too heavy at the front and SR doesn't have an LSD.

Is that right - what was the official lap time for the new Type R?


User avatar

harrier  3 years ago  

the new type r they have been testing has the fastest time around the ring for any hatch now, and its not even out until 2015, they say they are making it faster

I don't think it is.

Great, And fun, price isn't too bad, and the looks are fairly good, I don't think theres such thing as the best in anything, but id gladly chose a RS500 or Scirocco R over this.

But I do see a lot of them at Trackdays at the end of the month.

The best FWD sports car in the world?

@Skyzo;

Its not about raw speed, its about how it handles the speed on a track. The Evo FQ was faster at Rockingham, a renouned power track with some infield, whereas the Evo 9 was slower at Raceland which is much more corner orientated.

Power doesnt always overcome a cars deficit.

@wooody
thanx toa higher turbo-pressure (2.5bar instead of 2.3bar) and better intake system.
2.5 bar? that seems pretty much as wrong as my grandma doing a backflip on my snowboard.
i would say more around 1.6bars.

plus how can a Meg RS265 be faster then an evo IX ????
i own both and know what im talking about.. that is as irrealistic as doing grandma on board.

The Lap Time around Suzuka (2:33 ...) the Mégane is using semi slick tyres.
Advan Neova AD08 as everybody can see in minute 1:25

Nurburgring time is not done with Potenza re050A too.
Even if you compare with some other cars in other tracks, the gap makes no sence at all

@Sportic: the Megane rs trophy's time was on a full Nürburgring lap (the widely used Sport Auto Layout), as proven on video. BTG is much shorter. You should inform you before you comment

Re all the pathetic comments on here by people, why is the lap time a fake? The record was done witnessed by various car magazines such as EVO and autocar. It was a normal car running on 19" wheels on Bridgestone RE05A tyres, which are a standard fit. The car set a FWD record at the Bedford autodrome in 2011, lapping only a second slower than the E92 M3 Competition, so it just happens to be a very quick car around the track.

Where do you know that from? Maybe he was meaning '00 Boxster S (986) and 993 Carrera.. oh damn.. 4S. :D


User avatar

monkeypop  4 years ago  

The Cobalt SS is a faster/cheaper car IMO. Got more tricks up its sleeves as well.

Reason people hate on it so much is because its FWD and not because its French. To be honest FWD is pretty crummy when it comes to performance cars. People would hate on it regardless of where it is made.

u are an idiot if u really think that this car is faster than a boxster s or even an carrera s...


User avatar

rs265fan  4 years ago  

Wow faster than Boxster S, Elise and within 3 Secs of Carrera S...wow wow. This car is not even half their price! I test drove it and its great build...people will be in denial, as always - it is hard to change notions like porsche is the best, bmw is great etc etc. Wake up people, this french one is punching faaaaaaaaaaaar above its weight indeed!

I love this car just because it makes people so mad, they just can't accept being beaten by a french car.

Speed I've never heard so much nonsense in all my life, What difference would taking a interior mirror out a car make.LOL Special tyres whit!! why didn't the focus RS, New VXR Golf R stick special tyres on their cars then??? I've got a 265 Trophy and my mate has a Focus RS, The reason the Trophy is so quick is simple it's a much better handling car than all the other hot hatches out there,my mate admitted it himself. the Focus has a 2.5L engine it's too heavy at the front,it a drag car. The car I've got is based on the one that broke the record. it's official guys you need to accept it no matter how upset you are about it.

Dont take things so personal. Maybe the rear view mirrow was not removed on purpose. Being french it probably fell off which is not uncommon considering french quality. Whether the laptime stays or not it makes no difference to me. I just posted what I saw.

@Admins,please delete Speed's comments for his utter bullshit he says and completely wrong facts to keep these pages informative for all users.


User avatar

Speed  4 years ago  

@ The Race first of all Speedmaster and I are not the same person. Secondly if you want to put a time for production car it must be in full trim removing parts of the car to make it lighter makes it modded ! I have been on here for many years and i know that laptimes where removed because the cars used special tyres and not raod tyres. So there was nothing wrong with my comment. The vid clearly shows the rear view mirror being removed all i said was who know what else was those fags at renault removed ? Nice pic of two pussies suits you well :-P


User avatar

the race  4 years ago  

To Speed and all the other bunch of internet kids who think the laptime is fake: It has more than a year that is done and is totally accepted as 100% regular by all the media and other manufacturers,the car which did the lap is 100% stock and was later sold to public,so if any of you fags comment shit again better do it on some kid sites or smw else.

I see speedmaster aka speed the idiot confuses the 250 cup laptime with the 265 trophy one,get your facts straight you mong.


User avatar

Speed  4 years ago  

If you look at the 8:07 laptime vid you will see that is no a standard Megane RS. They even removed the rear view mirror and who knows what else to save weight . LMAO renault are a bunch of fags IMO

If you see the video, you can see he did the complete lap. I remember that after the lap Renault put the car on a power bank for test the real power. I can't understand why the laptime was deleted.
