According to a recent report, the production version of the Renault Alpine A110-50 concept could be built by Lotus.

Autocar says Renault marketing boss Steve Norman has confirmed the model will be mid- or rear-engined. Executives have already said they are in talks with another automaker to jointly-develop the model, so this has fueled speculation that the car could be based on the Evora platform.

Nothing is official, but an agreement could make sense because Infiniti is also considering having Lotus build the Emerg-e which is essentially a rebadged Evora 414E Hybrid. If both models were green-lighted, it could drastically reduce production and development costs.

As we have previously reported, the A110-50 concept was based on the Mégane Trophy and featured a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 400 PS (294 kW / 394 hp) and 422 Nm (311 lb-ft) of torque.
