Renault is gearing up to reveal a new Alpine for the original's 50th anniversary.
We've known for some time that Renault was working on an updated and fully modern version of their iconic Alpine in time for its big 50th anniversary. For those who may be unfamiliar, the original 1971 Alpine snagged a 1-2-3 finish at the Monte Carlo Rally and repeated this success at the World Rally Championship later that year, where it was victorious over the likes of Ford, Lancia, and Porsche. Some earlier rumors claimed the new car would be built on the GT-R's platform or even as an EV.
The French automaker hasn't said much regarding their exact plans, but now an image has appeared online that is supposedly the new Renault Alpine A110-50 concept that's set to debut at Monaco GP this coming weekend. Sources are now saying it's possible that it's based on the Megane Trophy and is powered by a V6 with an output at or around 400hp. This is all we know at the moment, but stay tuned as we hope to have complete details for you in just a few days.
