Renault to jointly develop the new Alpine sports car with Caterham

Article by Christian A., on October 2, 2012

Renault and Caterham will be jointly developing the new Alpine sports car. This has yet to be confirmed by the companies but it’s believed that the talks are advancing and would probably be announced within a month. Presently, Renault is the supplier of F1 engines to Caterham, which is where talks about joint projects have come from.

There are four divisions in the Caterham Group. These are: Caterham Cars, Caterham F1, Caterham Technology and Innovation and Caterham Composites. The Technology division was established in early 2012 specifically to assist Caterham Cars in developing the next generation of accessible and affordable sportscars.

Back then, sources said that the company, which is presently headquartered in Leafield in Oxfordshire, already began to work on projects for external companies. Renault chief Carlos Tavares has claimed long ago that the new Alpine sports car project depends on locating a partner to share development costs.

Caterham is likely to open a parallel model using the same chassis. He told Autocar that the platform layout is finished. He said that this car has to appeal to the emotions. The complete details are not clear but last month, Caterham said that it had named deputy managing director of Renault Sport F1 Cyril Abiteboul as the new CEO.
