Renault Alpine A110-50 : Concept Cars

In the perspective of a supercar, Renault attempts to brand their very own as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the original Alpine A110. The new Renault Alpine Concept was influenced by the Renault DeZir concept and based off of the Megane Trophy (Renault Megane Coupe V6-powered mid-engine sports car).

The Alpine concept features a carbon fiber body, semi-circle LED lights mimicking the DeZir’s fog lights, a roof-mounted air intake, 21-inch alloy wheels shod in Michelin tires and scissor doors.

Everything about the Alpine concept is sporty but somewhat reserved in terms of a true supercar due to its modest 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 400 horsepower and 311ft.lbs. of torque. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential and 6-speed sequential transmission.

Other aspects of the Alpine include large high-performance brakes, near 50/50 weight distribution, Sachs adjustable dampers and an integrated pneumatic jacking system for easy repair and servicing.

In my carnal mind I want to believe that this could be the predecessor to a new Nissan or Infiniti product here in the States due to the Renault-Nissan ties. We can only hope so.
