Renault axed Alpine, but is resurrecting Gordini…

In addition to Alpine, one of the other famous sporting brands within Renault was the Gordini brand. I always thought the little Gordinis were cute little cars, but not in the same realm as the Alpine cars. However, Renault obviously disagrees. Shortly after announcing that the Alpine brand was going into the grave, Renault has announced that it is reviving the Gordini brand for a series of hot hatches/small cars. I do love the blue and off center white racing stripes, and since Renault is not coming back to the US any time soon—i doubt we will ever see these cars on our shores anyways!
