Alpine A110-50

Renault has officially released details on its Alpine A110-50 Concept. Designed to pay homage
to the original Alpine A110, the machine wears a body crafted from carbon fiber and dipped in
a shade of the same iconic Alpine Blue we all know and love. Up front, designers worked in a
set of half-ring yellow LED lights reminiscent of the hood-mounted fog lights found on the original.
That's pretty much where the similarities end, however. Based loosely on the
crushingly-sexy Renault Dezir Concept, the new machine boasts proud fender arches,
a wild split-wing rear spoiler and scissor doors.

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. Hefty 14-inch front brake discs are pressed by
six-piston calipers, while the 13-inch discs out back make due with four-piston units.

Renault placed a 3.5-liter V6 mid-ship with a full 400 horsepower on hand. A roof
mounted-intake funnels air from outside the engine bay into the machine's carbon-fiber
intake. Meanwhile, a dual-clutch six-speed gearbox allows the driver the choice of
disengaging the transmission via a floor-mounted clutch pedal or shifting via
steering-wheel mounted paddles.

November 2012: Renault announces an alliance with Caterham to produce the A110-50.
First copies should be available in 2016 at a price around 35-40 KEuros.
