Renault Megane TCR Specs Released

The Vukovic Motorsport designed and built Megane TCR has been developed to optimize the excellent chassis qualities of the production model for an ultimate racing use. The combination of the standard suspension layout, known to give state of the art agility in the production cars and the chassis optimization, on torsion and strength, is giving a large set up potential for the best lap time performance and tire degradation management.

The aerodynamic study generates, at the front, the right level of downforce with optimized fresh air intake for the engine, while at the back, attention has been given to minimize the drag.

As soon as the authorization for the project was granted by Renault Sport, key technical partners with the same passion for quality and performance have paired with the Swiss tuner.

– BOSCH Motorsport oversees the entire electronics, including engine management, power box, dashboard and wiring loom

– 3 MO, the French high performance transmissions specialist has been selected and will provide their latest gearbox, with external slip differential set up device

– KW, the German shock absorber company is on Vukovic Motorsport’s side, with a dedicated development

– OZ Wheels will supply specific rims for the Megane TCR

– Lehmann Motorentechnik is in charge of developing the 1.8-liter engine in race track specifications. The renown Lichtenstein based engine tuning company will conduct a specific development that will benefit from the extensive turbo charger experience Lehman Motorentechnik has gathered over the years

While intensive work is carried out in the Sankt Margrethen (CH) workshop, the back-office team has created a fresh and new website (www.vukovic-motorsport.com) with direct access to the latest information and pictures. Further down, the portal will also be used to manage customer order intakes.
