Renault Alpine A110-50 concept officially unveiled [videos]

Renault has officially unveiled the Alpine A110-50 concept.

Built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original model, the concept is based on the Mégane Trophy and was created by Renault Sport Technologies.

Heavily influenced by the DeZir concept, the A110-50 has a carbon fiber body with a roof-mounted air intake and half-domed LED lights that mimic the original car's fog lights. There's also scissor doors, a prominent rear wing and 21-inch alloy wheels with Michelin tires.

The cabin features a minimalist design with Alcantara sport seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and a roll cage.

Motivation is provided by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 400 PS (294 kW / 394 hp) and 422 Nm (311 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed sequential transmission which sends power to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential.

Other highlights include Sachs adjustable dampers, high-performance brakes (that measure 356mm front / 330mm rear) and a 47.8/52.2 weight distribution. Interestingly, the car also has integral pneumatic jacks for easy servicing and repair.
