Ever since writing about the Alpine concept debut’ing at Monaco on May 25th, the Internet has been alight with articles about the Alpine resurrection. Less than a week to go! Pretty exciting times for the Alpine marque.
Here’s today’s buzz.
Is this modified DeZir the actual Alpine “Zar” or as Motorsport Magazine call it “A110-50”. I honestly don’t know…..I would like to believe the Alpine concept will look different than the DeZir. So why I am I posting it? Because I really love the way this photo looks—looks like a proper race car as an Alpine should be. Only a couple of more days to wait til the real deal peaks its head…will it look like this? Who knows!? Renault has keeped its lipped very tightly sealed so far!
after searching a bit through Dezir photos—-i’ve discovered this supposed “Alpine” photo (src: netcarshow) is just a photoshop. I doubt Renault would photoshop their Dezir concept to make an Alpine So my conclusion? I don’t believe this is the Alpine concept—I think it’s just a photoshop.
Well ………. unfortunately ……. this is it . Its official and all over the Internet . So much for a 21st Century A110 . More like a GTA on Botox and Steroids . Shame . A new Alpine A110 would of been just the ticket for this era we’re in . Small – agile – fun – reasonable practical … everything this machine is not 😦
it’s not official, man……the other blogs have no idea what they’re talking about…..they’re just DRONES who copy other people’s content!!!
Hello Syed : I know it’s late but I was in the right . I give you a link where you found the photo of the A110-50
And if you can access it, look at the site of the newspaper “L’Equipe” interview with Erik Comas on the subject. Erik Comas is the pope of French Alpine A110 and has its inputs at Renault
En Français , ça donne ça :
Erik COMAS qui résume le mieux le concept que l’on devrait découvrir dans maintenant 3 jours:” Ce concept-car ZAR n’est qu’une coquille vide, un “gateau d’anniversaire”, même si c’est déjà mieux que rien.”
And this is a used Megane Trophy with its base V6 3.5 L 400 hp (engine of the Nissan 350Z suited to racing). That’s all.
Hello Syed : I know it’s late . I was in the right. It’s not a fake. It’s teh reality . I am sending you a link that shows a model of the Alpine A110-50 in the ground at the service of Renault design.
And if you can go, here’s a link to the newspaper L’Equipe in which Erik Comas, the French pope of the A110 has some words a bit hard for this project
In summary he said in french :
” Ce concept-car ZAR n’est qu’une coquille vide, un “gateau d’anniversaire”, même si c’est déjà mieux que rien.”
that’s it for tonight. Now we’ll talk about that Friday afternoon
It’s more or less official, look on worldscoop starting here : http://worldscoop.forumpro.fr/t4559p105-2012-alpine-renault-a110-50-concept#349531
