I placed a order for a trophy to replace my current trophy about 3 weeks ago, was told that the factory wasn’t taking any orders on any renaults till today. They are now accepting orders for non rs models but not rs models. Doesn’t anyone know why?. What’s the normal wait time from ordering to delivery? I don’t want to sell my current trophy to then find its not going to arrive till November and I decided I want to cancel the order!

Thanks

Gavin

Rumour is RS being wound down to make production room for EVs. Renault performance will be marketed only as Alpine and brand moved upmarket.

Hi Kirsty172,

Are you stating that that they are not set to make any more 300 RS trophy anytime soon or ceasing production?
I also placed an order for a Trophy a few weeks ago and waiting to hear when the factory order book opens. Concerned it might be some time before they do....
Will they also close in August?

Thanks,

I was going to comment this doesn't fit inline with the substantial marketing expenditure Renault puts into the RenaultSport F1 team but just noticed it's now just the Renault F1 team.

Still seems unlikely that they'd get rid of Renaultsport (or at least the cars).

It’s not that they have stopped making the rs. They are not taking orders for them atm.

I lived in Scotland for a few years, and the sunroof would be perfect for the views, what put me off the sunroof was the headliner and pillars were then beige colour, where as normal it is black.

If I went for a lighter colour I would of wrapped the roof black, but I have gone black for mine, wanted orange or yellow but was pre warned about delays in paint.
Where in Scotland do you live?

Seems to be a theme. Mine was ordered end of April for September delivery but it’s been brought forward. It’s been built and now on its way for transport. Also ordered it in Glasgow.

Ahh fair enough, keep us up to date when you collect, did you order through a normal Renault dealer, or a actual r.s. Dealer
