A110-50 in detail and production Alpine coming to 2012 Paris Auto Show.

I fell hard for the Renault Alpine A110-50 Concept  introduced on May 25th at the Monaco Grand Prix.  Here are some fantastic close-up detail shots of the concept, confirming that the level of detail is just beautiful on it.  From the success of the concept, it appears we are going to see some sort of a production Alpine concept at the Paris Auto Show in the Autumn.  I’m really not sure how finished of a product we may see—however i’m quite confident based on people i’ve spoken to that there will be something on display at the Paris show resembling a production Alpine, at least in concept form.

50 years ago, Jean Redele introduced the production Alpine A110 at the 1962 Paris Auto Show.  Renault is going to do something similar with a production, street-version of the A110-50.  As usual, IEDEI will be ahead of the game when it comes to publishing news about it!

L’Alpine has landed!

I will be posting lots of photos and videos (hopefully) from today’s Alpine A110-50 concept debut.  As someone who is very excited and enthusiastic about the past and future of the Alpine marque—today should be a fascinating day!

Carlos Tavares, Chief Operating Officer at Renault….i dig the Alpine threads, man!

introducing: the Alpine A110-50!

In all its glory.  I only have one word i can say right now: WANT

I am severely biased towards anything Alpine….but honestly lately i’ve REALLY been getting into ‘futuristic’ cars meeting ‘vintage’ in their philosophy…..and THIS is just brilliant.  Magical, even.  Renault read my mind.

big thanks to my friend Jon for tipping me about these photos!  Unfortunately they are low-resolution; however i’m sure there will be plenty of high-res pics after tomorrow.  Tomorrow there should be a lot more information about the technical specs, such as exact engine (400hp V6?)—but what we can confirm is that it is mid-engined.

Alpine Zar/A110-50 design pretty much confirmed (+ video teaser)

So while i stand by my statement that the previous A110-50/Zar photo was indeed a photoshop, it appears the design itself is pretty much how the ‘new’ Alpine concept is going to look! (big thank you to Neo Luxembourg for these tips!)

this photo was published by Renault themselves!

And then there’s this photo of a bloke working on a clay model, which looks basically exactly like the photoshopped picture!  This was published on Figaro and the photo is on Worldscoop HERE:

additionally, Renault have released a 30 second video clip ‘teaser’….which I am not able to embed on this site, however you can watch it here!

Is this the new Alpine concept? well…a photoshop!

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.
