To celebrate the iconic A110's 50th, Renault introduces Alpine A110-50, a concept translating the most characteristic design features of the original A110 in a modern way. The concept also features elements from Renault's new design language, launched by Laurens van den Acker on concept DeZiR, and which will soon be rolled out in the company’s future models. Thus,Alpine A110-50 adopts the new front-end look, with the upright, confident diamond, adapted for this very low and wide car.
The Renault Alpine A110-50 concept car translates the most characteristic design features of the original A110 in with:
- the sculpted forms of its elegant, flowing bodywork, enhanced by lights over which air seems to flow effortlessly.
- the half-domed additional lamps, with a technical but nostalgic interpretation, thanks to full LED yellow lighting – as it should be!
- a characteristic 3D rear window, which reveals the mid-rear engine.
- air intakes on each side echo the ducts on the rear wheel arches of the Berlinette. The right-hand opening is for gearbox cooling, the left is for the engine bay.
The carbon-fibre bodywork features a new shade of blue which refreshes and reinterprets the famous original ‘Alpine Blue’. Every opening panel does so with dynamics worthy of the finest GTs, with the bonnet hinged at the front and the engine bay cover opening towards the rear. The doors feature a scissor motion.
