Renault Alpine debuts in Monte Carlo; set for Geneva

Renault Alpine debuts in Monte Carlo; set for Geneva

Renault’s Alpine Vision concept has broken cover. It is another iteration of the awaited sports car concept from the French manufacturer. The car was unveiled in Monte Carlo ahead of the Geneva Motor Show where the Alpine will be showcased.

For those who do not know Alpine, it is the performance factory for Renault that started as a sports car manufacturing company in the 50s and now builds cars for Renault Sport. Alpine tasted huge success with the A110 going on to win the 1973 World Rally championship beating the likes of Porsche, Lancia and Ford on the way.

The Alpine Vision carries the A110 legacy ahead with the signature four headlamps, the centre bonnet crease, the coupe lines and the curved rear windscreen albeit with a stylish modern touch. For the enthusiasts, it still gets the mid-engine rear-wheel-drive setup transferring power through a dual-clutch gearbox with paddle-shifts. The two-door sports coupe will be powered by a 1.8-litre four cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that is expected to belt out 250bhp pf power.

The Vision goes past the 100kmph mark from standstill in 4.5 seconds and will rival the Porsche Cayman to start with. The Alpine car to go to production in 2017 will closely resemble the Vision concept and we expect to see the production prototype by the end of 2016.
