Renault has introduced the new Alpine Celebration Concept at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
After it has been announced just a few days ago, the brand new Renault Alpine Celebration Concept has been officially introduced, in a world premiere, at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The model has been created in order to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Alpine and it is offering a small preview of a next road-going sports car which will be introduced sometimes next year.
“We envisaged the Alpine Celebration show car as the crowning glory of six decades of Alpine style and motor racing. We paid meticulous attention to every detail. This time, however, we wanted to go even further by reaching out to the hearts of a much broader audience”, said the Alpine Design director, Antony Villain.
The Renault Alpine Celebration Concept is coming with the blue and orange finish on its body and it has the mid-engine layout. The vehicle is basically a successor of the A110-50 Concept, shown back in 2012, and its alloy wheel design reminds us of the A110 and the A310 of the 1970s. The model is also coming with the large brakes and orange brake calipers, along with the dual exhaust setup, a prominent diffuser and a fixed wing. We have no clue at this time what is found under its hood and we will probably never find out but the best part of it is that the production version, which might be called the AS1 (Alpine Sport 1) is expected to be introduced in 2016, probably in Geneva.
