Renault group have just unveiled this concept car… the Alpine Vision.
It is powered by a 4 cylinder turbocharged engine, built by Renault Sport, and is capable of going from 0 to 62mph in only 4.5 seconds. This is achieved due to it being light weight and is a real target for the production model.
Alpine promise outstanding agility true to the great Alpine A110 Berlinette which is loved and admired by fans all around the world.
“All of us at Alpine are proud to have been entrusted with the task of bringing back Alpine to sports car lovers around the world”, said Michael van der Sande, Alpine Managing Director. “Our job is to faithfully re-interpret famous Alpines of the past and project Alpine into the future with a beautifully designed, agile, high-performance sports car. Our Alpine Vision show car is immediately recognizable as an Alpine yet resolutely modern. We look forward to revealing the production model later this year.”
During the next 12 months, the Alpine team will be working on bringing this concept car to the real world. Launch is planned for 2017.

I really hope that they do not stray too far away from the initial concept car. This could be what I think Renault needs, a light, fast, agile, sporty car to complement the Renault Sport Clio and Megane. A kind of “a halo car” in their range. I think back to the 80’s/90’s with such coupes like the Fuego and the mid engine Alpine GTA/A610, which were awesome cars.
With this car arriving next year, Alpine/Renault have a lot to look forward too.
