2017 Renault Alpine Gripz Concept
We would like to announce our return, but some would say that we have never gone away.” These are the words chosen to inaugurate the Twitter account of the brand Alpine. Who started to “chirp” today, making official the return date: the first model of the new course will be presented on 16 February.
An extreme sports for the return Formed in 1955 and used for road cars until 1995, the brand of Dieppe will return in “portfolio” Renault with an uncompromising sports car, which should take the suggestions of the stylistic Celebration Concept, first shown in June at the 24 Hours of Le Mans ( where the Alpine brand is used on a car LMP2) and then at the Festival of Speed at Goodwood. The prototype, in turn, was connected to the A110 clearly, the car that won the first World Rally Championship history in 1973.
The model’s comeback has long been in testing, but they do not yet know any technical details: To find out, we must probably wait until the press conference to present, where it is expected the presence of Carlos Ghosn.
The hypothesis crossover 2017 Renault Alpine
The plans for the Renault Alpine already go beyond the design of the coupe, which is shaping up as a model inevitably niche in commercial terms: after the start of sales (no later than the beginning of 2017), the French group will work an expansion of the range. That could lead to the surprise of a crossover sport. Potentially a choice similar to that of the branch Nissan Alliance, which prepared the ground for a “Z” high-wheel with Gripz Concept.
