    I know, it's confused a lot of people. @chuckovski stated earlier in this thread that he believes they are basically a 265 cup with a 275 engine to run out the model.

    @ak275 RACV recognising my VIN as a 275 Trophy (which it most obviously isn't) Renault's database says 275 Cup

    @ak275 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/renault/megane/rs-275-cup-badge/?area=Stock&vertical=car&WT.z_srchsrcx=makemodel I'm not sure you're correct - I am fairly sure (from previous research) that the cups don't have any of that. I am yet to see a 275 cup with alacantara recaros, suede steering wheel or an akra exhaust. Link above is carsales 275 cups. Link below is redbook. https://www.redbook.com.au/cars/details/2016-renault-megane-rs-275-cup-manual/SPOT-ITM-447298/ Can anyone else clarify this?

    Also - all those extras you mentioned are for a Cup Premium right? I've got a Cup - so don't expect the akra exhaust, leather seats etc.

    Hmmm... 2016 build 265 Cup? I'm not sure you're correct... Sports mode also shows max power of 275bhp? That might settle it?

    I've done so and it's insured as a Cup Premium while the underwriters investigate 👍

    That's true - but they now know that it is the incorrect car and that could bite me later. I don't think I'll do it until I have a confirmation from them in writing stating they understand etc. I just hope it is done soon so I can have some peace of mind and pick up the car on Friday..

    So an update: I spoke with Renault this morning who sent me the datasheet as per Renault Aus on this VIN (a snippet of which I've attached above).. and it's come back as a 275Cup... it's the database that RACV (and likely other insurance companies) are working off that is incorrect. Sent that datasheet to RACV now waiting on a response. Which is no good because I'm an impatient human being.

    2016 build, 2016 compliance.

    Thanks for your input - I'm not sure how insurance companies can do this.. but my biggest worry is the VIN! It's listed as a Trophy through it's VIN number.

    I found this on redbook: https://www.redbook.com.au/cars/details/2016-renault-megane-rs-275-cup-manual/SPOT-ITM-447298/ proves it exists basically? My biggest worry is insuring it as a Trophy - as stated by the VIN, and having issues if I were to ever make a claim.

    Hi all, Over the weekend I signed the contract to purchase a 2016 Renault Megane RS275 Cup in Liquid Yellow from a Renault dealership. Today, in an attempt to insure the car before I pick it up on Friday, ran into some trouble. First of all, there is no option on RACV for a 2016 RS275 Cup... only a 2016 RS275 Cup Premium, or a 2016 RS275 Trophy. As an admirer or the Megane, I am sure it is neither of these. To further perplex this dilemma, when I called RACV to sort this out, and provided the consultant with the VIN number, he assured me that the car associated with this VIN number was a 2016 Renault Megane RS275 Trophy. Once again, the car I saw definitely was not a trophy. The car I purchased does not have Alacantara recaros, Akrapovich exhaust, any trophy decals, and the door trim says "Renault Sport" not Trophy. It also has a black front bar, not a Silver front bar as the trophy's have, with Trophy on it. Furthermore, when doing a registration check on the VIN number, everything lines up. The registration was cancelled last month, its a yellow Renault Megane etc... Now I have 2 questions: 1) Does anyone have a 2016 RS275 Cup insured with RACV? 2) Is there any explanation to the VIN showing up as a trophy Below are a few photos of the car.

    Price range ?

    I've actually seen this car in person at the dealership. I went to see the 275 cup they had there. The car is really clean and looks to be in great condition. Customer service experience at this dealership was awful, though. Hopefully if you head down there, your experience will be better.

    Newbie looking for some expert opinions

    Well, for what's available on Carsales, you're looking at 31-33k for a Cup and 35-38k for a Cup Premium. I dare say that might be worth all the extras that come with the Premium. Only my opinion, of course.
