Alpine relaunch remains on track for 2016, Renault says

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 8, 2014

Back in June, Renault announced that it bought Caterham’s stake in Alpine and will continue to launch on its own the new sports cars. In September, the company revealed the fact that it the design of the new sports car is almost finished. In a recent interview at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Renault chief Carlos Ghosn said that the project is continuing as planned, although it would have been better to split the investment with a partner.

This means that the relaunch of Alpine brand is on track for 2016. Still, there is some bad news! If you liked the A110-50 Concept unveiled by Renault in 2012 you should forget about it as the new sports car will not look like that vehicle.

Laurens van den Acker said that the new vehicle will be a modern reinterpretation of the classic Alpine A110 Berlinette, which was launched in the 1960s.

Regarding its partner, Caterham, Renault said that it brought a lot of experience to the team, especially when it comes to rapid prototyping and setting up a sports car. [source: whatcar.co.uk]
