Details on the Renault Alpine A110-50 Concept have been released. Designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original A110, the bold concept is strongly inspired by the French automaker’s DeZir concept and is all about business.
Lending to the concept’s race-ready appearance and persona are a carbon fiber body, prominent side skirts and rear diffuser, 21 inch wheels wrapped in road homologated Michelin tires and an in-your-face rear wing. Classic design cues from the original A110, such as the blue paint-job and circular air-intakes between the headlamps add some nostalgic character.
The simple, straight-to-business interior features Alcantara bucket seats, a roll cage and race-inspired steering wheel with a color screen that provides drivers with performance-related information.
The A110-50 Concept is powered by a Nissan-sourced 3.5-liter V6 engine making 400 horsepower (294 kW) and 311 lb-ft (422 Nm) of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed sequential transmission, which sends power to the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential. Other performance-related features include a 47.8/52.2 weight distribution, adjustable dampers and high-performance brakes that measure 356 mm in the front and 330 mm in the rear.
