The upcoming production version of the Renault Alpine has been digitally imagined as a Spider.

Latest word on the street says Renault is just about ready to unveil a second Alpine-branded concept after the A110-50 shown back in 2012. It will happen on June 13 during this year's edition of the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race and it will be closer to production and serve as a preview for the road-going car scheduled to go on sale sometime in 2016.

Seen here is a Spider interpretation of our recent 2016 Alpine production version render and it could actually happen in the following years as Renault wants to roll out an entire lineup of Alpine models, including even crossovers/SUVs.

Paving the way for the new Alpine lineup will be a "low weight and sporty" model likely called AS1 (Alpine Sport 1) which is expected to cost between €30,000 and €35,000. Production will take place at home in Dieppe, northern France and Renault wants to make between 3,000 and 5,000 units annually. The vehicle will borrow some of the bits and pieces from Nissan and Daimler while power will reportedly come from a 1.6-liter turbo engine churning up to 250 bhp (186 kW) wrapped around in a body weighing just 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs).

Hopefully, Renault will disclose more details about the production version next month when the new concept will be introduced.
