Despite Renault’s recently launched Alpine A110-50 concept being one-of-one, Renault recently announced that it’ll be tackling the legendary hill climb in the car.
Yes – Renault is at Goodwood Festival of Speed with this beautiful concept. The look is a mix of the DeZir concept designed by Laurens van den Acker—which we saw in Paris—and the classic Alpine.
As we’d heard before, the A110-50 Concept rolls on the same chassis as the Megane Trophy, complete with adjustable Sachs dampers, 21-inch wheels and the notable absences of on-board nannies like ABS or traction control.
The Alpine A110-50 is powering by Renault’s very own the mid-rear mounted V4Y engine block, a 3.5-liter 24-valve V6 pumping out 400 horsepower. Impressive to say the least, but Renault has yet to release figures regarding top speed, 0-60 times, and the like.
Possibly the most impressive part of the Alpine A110-50 is its six-speed sequential gearbox. It comes equipped with a twin-plate clutch that can be controlled using either the clutch pedal or a paddle on the steering wheel. It also incorporates a limited-slip differential with adjustable preloading.
