Renault Teams With Caterham For New Alpine

Back in May, Renault revealed a hot Alpine A110-50 concept, hinting at a possibility that the historic Alpine name will be revived.

Yesterday, Renault announced they have teamed up with UK-based Caterham. Both companies own a 50 percent stake in the new company called the Societe des Automobiles Alpine Caterham (SAAC) to build high-end sports cars at Renault’s Alpine plant in Dieppe, Normandy, in France.

Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of Renault commented in the press release:
“This innovative partnership with Caterham embodies a longstanding ambition: the creation of a sports car with the Alpine DNA. It carries both opportunities for the Dieppe plant and the development of its historic expertise.”

Details in the press release below are limited, but there will be a range of different sports cars, including the production version of the Alpine A110-50 concept.

Both automakers will have their own versions of the cars, with different body panels, chassis tuning and very likely even engines. RWD layout will be common to all cars.
