Modern Day Renault Alpine Rendered

Judging from the €100,000+ some models are fetching at auctions, there are few cars wearing the Renault badge that are more sought-after than the Alpine. However, the last coupe to wear the famous moniker dates back to the A610 from the mid 1990s. The French carmaker has the beautiful Laguna coupe and the convertible hardtop version of the Megane in its range, but neither of these are true sportscars.

So 3D graphics designer extraordinaire David Cardoso set out to make a modern interpretation of the best-loved version of the Alpine, the A110. The coupe uses the same design as the original, displaying an elongated shape, a long bonnet and sloping roofline. Both the front and rear lights are inspired by the current Renault production car lineup, as well as the Dezir Concept.

Just like the Laguna Coupe, the Alpine’s back reminds us a bit of an Aston Martin, not that that’s a bad thing. A set of large alloy rims fills the wheel arches, behind which we can spot a set of ventilated Brembo disc brakes.

“I made a modern interpretation of the Renault Alpine A110. Like the original Alpine, this concept has a rear engine and a stretched silhouette. The rear is inspired by the Dezir Concept while the front has influences of the Nepta Concept. Could be a direct competitor (or ally since Nissan is in the Renault group) for the Nissan 370Z,” Cardoso told Carscoop about his design.

We really think that Renault should bring the Alpine back as soon as possible, as there aren’t enough honest affordable sportscars out there. We wouldn’t really mind if it only came with the 250 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine from the Megane RS, if it costs about the same. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
