Renault Alpine Celebration concept debuts at Le Mans

Renault Alpine Celebration show car previews the marque’s return to the sports car market in the near future.

The Alpine Celebration concept is a two-seat, mid-engined coupe drawing inspiration from road-going and competition models from the marque’s past like the legendary Alpine A110.

You can look at it as Renault’s take on the likes of Porsche Cayman, Lotus Elise, and Alfa Romeo 4C.

Technical details are not known at this stage, unlike on the last Alpine A110-50 concept unveiled three years ago, which was clearly more aggressive and had our hopes quite high.

Featuring the iconic colours of legendary models from the brand’s illustrious past, the show car design is highlighted by carbon detailing used to highlight the high-tech features of the car’s body, from its spoiler to the side sills, diffuser, rear air intakes and mirrors.

The masked double head-lamps and the central round lights barred by a black cross are to remind fans of the adhesive strips that used to be found on the headlights of Alpine’s rally cars.

There is also a floating spoiler, side sills with sharp lines, while the mirrors, meanwhile, incorporate a thin design.

The famous Alpine arrowed ‘A’ is visible on the air intake grille, sides, front wings and roof.

We expect to see the production model of the first modern day Alpine in the near future.
