The announcement of the Vukovic Motorsport Megane TCR has generated a genuine interest amongst teams and drivers. Several have enquired additional information and some made their way to the workshop. They have been deeply impressed by the choice of components and the build quality.
The German BESA Group is the first customer to have placed a firm order for 2 units which will be displayed at the famous Essen Motorshow in Germany early December (1st– 10th).
Franjo Kovac, CEO and owner of the BESA Group said “I am a true fan of what Milenko Vukovic is putting on the market and the Megane TCR, in this quality, is exactly what I was looking for. I want my team to perform at the very front and I do not want to make any compromises on quality and performance. I am absolutely convinced that the Megane TCR will establish itself as one of the top reference in the category. I can’t wait to collect my 2 cars in a few weeks’ time”.
“I am very proud to see how well the Megane TCR is being received”, said Milenko Vukovic. “With the engine almost ready to come in the car, I now have all the elements in place to move forward. We have already started building further chassis while at the same time, we are preparing for our intensive winter testing program”, he added.
Lichtenstein based Lehmann Motorentechnik, in charge of developing the 1.8-liter engine, has now completed the build of the development engine which is currently being optimized on the dyno, together with technical partner BOSCH Motorsport.
Vukovic Motorsport and Panolin AG, a Swiss independent lubricants manufacturer who offers sustainable lubricants, are joining forces on this project to show case their common goals when it comes to performance and quality.
The Megane TCR by Vukovic Motorsport in its full sprint race specifications (as per technical data sheet below) is offered at the price of 130.000€ + VAT when applicable. The delivery time is 6 to 8 weeks’ time, depending on long lead parts availability.
