The Return Of The Renault Alpine

Illustration for article titled The Return Of The Renault Alpine

This leaked photo is the first of the new Renault Alpine concept, due for official unveiling in Monaco on Friday. Under the skin is purportedly a tube-framed Megane Trophy complete with a mid-mounted VQ V6 tuned to 400 HP and 310 Lb-Ft. Dubbed the A110-50, the concept marks the 50th anniversary of the first A110.



It's not the best concept I've seen, but neither is it the worst. The insult here is that this car has nothing to do with the A110.

I don't necessarily want to see a retread of the original, a la the Camaro, but I'd certainly expect it to be more evocative, a la the 911.
