New Alpine is almost here
It could be here in under a year... The Renault Alpine Vision Concept was shown off at Monte Carlo on the famous Col de Turini. Now, a dedicated engineering team of Alpine enthusiasts at Renault are working to produce the production model of a new Alpine sports car.
Designed to take on all comers in the sport premium cars segment, the new Alpine will be true to its roots, following in the great tradition of the Alpine A110 Berlinette, but at the cutting edge of modern car design and performance. With Renault firmly back on the F1 track, the new Alpine will also benefit from Renault’s motorsport expertise. The Alpine team’s remit is to bring some 80% of the Alpine Vision Concept forward into the design of the new road car. This means it will look sleek and sensuous, it will be highly agile, weight will be minimised and performance maximised – the new Renaultsport mid-mounted, four-cylinder turbocharged engine will make 0-62mph pass in under 4.5 seconds. Watch out for more Alpine by the end of the year, and we expect to have it in our showroom before the middle of 2017.
