A new report sheds some light regarding Caterham's version of the Alpine revival which is being co-developed with Renault who will get its own version.

Internally known as the C120, the Caterham Alpine will be a two-seater sports car significantly different than Renault's variant. Its design has already been signed-off and is expected to come with an entirely different exterior body and interior configuration, while engine tuning and steering will also be Caterham's own. Even though the cars will have identical horsepower and torque outputs, Caterham plans on expanding the lineup with different power figures after the first car comes out.

Output is expected to stand at around 250 bhp (186 kW) but according to Caterham sources they are aiming to hit the 300 bhp (224 kW) mark. Power of the Caterham Alpine will come from an entirely new Renault-sourced engine which isn't in production right now. The Caterham two-seater will feature an aluminum body which should grant the car with a curb weight of just 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs).

Both versions of the Alpine will be manufactured at Renault's factory in Dieppe, and Caterham plans on selling 3,000 units annually. The British company is currently expanding its dealer network to accommodate what will probably be a massive 500 percent sales boost.
