    This awesome car means the reborn of the Alpine sub-brand. After some delays, it seems the Renault boss Teves gave his ok to produce this beauty within 2015.
    Legendary french driver Jean Ragnotti gave his help to develop it, just like still does another great driver, Walter Rohrl, for Porsche.
    This will be produced through a joint venture with Caterham, the UK factory famous to keep alive the Lotus 7 under the name ''Caterham 7'', one of the best car ever for true hardcore sporty drive, barely legal and personally tested a couple of times (R 300, extraordinary toy).
    The car u see here on the Monaco 2012 city track is based on the Megane RS (Trophy limited version) chassis with a V6 3.5 engine, but the production car will have a dedicated specific own chassis , no infos about the engine, probabilly an upgraded version of the current Megane RS's.
    Anyway, if someone thinks Renault is not at the same level of famous italian so called ''exotic cars'', i should remember them that Renault is one of the most awarded engine's producers ever in Formula 1 (as Renault itself, or as furnisher for Lotus, Brawn GP, Red Bull just to say some) so they knows how to build sport parts , no one can say the opposite.
    Besides Renault builds the best FWD ever, the Megane RS ;)

    Well, it seems the final production version will differ from this concept since probabilly Renault and its partner Caterham will give it a wider use's range, so more comfort and space, and, sadly, less sporty mood.
    We'll see. Anyway, engine and general powertrain will be produced by Renault, then each brand will give it its own design and set up. Eveything is still quite tentative though.
