The Alpine A110 Berlinette just got a mind-blowing makeover. In an exciting career move, Renault Alpine released their Alipine A110-50 concept at the Monaco GP racing circuit, and it is wowing car aficionados everywhere. Designed to pay homage to the original Alpine A1110, the car's exterior is a state-of-the-art carbon fiber, and comes in an exciting electric royal blue color.
The car's wildcard is definitely its lack of silencers, which make the automobile glass-shatteringly loud. However, the car boasts all the trimmings of an elite supercar. Adjustable Sachs dampers, 21-inch wheels, and half-ring yellow LED lights, a split-wing rear spoiler, and scissor doors. The car also breaks on a dime, 14 inch front brake disks offer superior brake-ability, backed up by six-piston calipers.
The engine is also a brave new stroke for the company. A 3.5 liter V6 engine boasts 400 horsepower. In order to cool the carbon-fiber intake, roof mounted-intake funnels bring in air from the the outside into the engine. The clutch is a six-speed, but the driver can choose between shift paddling or traditional foot shifting.
While many details of the cars conjure up delightful images of the original, the car also hints at the Renault Dezir Concept, in a surprisingly delightful ways. As Renault design boss Laurens van den Acker told Top Gear Magazine. " "Alpine is not owned by us, it's owned by everyone who loves cars. Alpine is one of those rare names that has no negative connotations...so I know I can't screw this one up."
