The Renault Alpine Vision concept has the Porsche 718 Cayman in its sights


At a lavish event in Monaco that featured over 90 of the marque’s A110 Berlinettes, Renault Alpine took another step towards its long-awaited new sports car by revealing the Vision concept…

80% there... 

Monte Carlo was an apt place for Renault to reveal the new Alpine Vision concept, given the A110’s success on the famous rally. Visually very similar to the Alpine Celebration concept that was first shown in 2015, the Vision concept is said to be 80% of the way to the forthcoming production car, which will be unveiled before the end of this year. Pleasingly, the mid-engined coupé takes clear aesthetic inspiration from its distant relation, including its diminutive dimensions. Rumoured to weigh just 1,100kg and to be powered by a circa-250bhp turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the production car will allegedly be fast and fun to drive. And priced in the region of £40,000, it’ll havePorsche’s four-cylinder 718 Cayman firmly in its sights. Though it’s yet another step towards the final product, we’re pleased to see the project is still on track.
