Alpine Vision Revealed in Monaco, Kazunori Yamauchi in Attendance

February 17th, 2016 by Kyle Patrick

Alpine-Vision-03-1600x900

Alpine showed off the latest iteration of their planned return to road car production yesterday in Monaco. Starting with the A110-50 concept of 2012, followed by a certain Vision Gran Turismo creation last year, and the Alpine Celebration model later in 2015, we’ve now landed at the rather confusingly-titled Alpine Vision.

This Vision, much like the A110 it so clearly pays respect to, is a pretty, petite package. Some family features from its grandfather have survived across the generations: the additional in-set headlights, the C-shaped swage line on the flanks, the wheel-at-every-corner stance. The modern big wheels and LED taillights blend well with these details, delivering what should be an attractive alternative to the Porsche Cayman and Alfa Romeo 4C when the final production model is shown before the end of 2016.

Few details are known about the mechanical aspects of the car. Renault has so far only announced that the four cylinder turbo engine will be mounted midship – unlike the original A110’s rear-engined layout – and that the dash to 100km/h will be dispatched in “less than 4.5 seconds”.

The event was held at the Col de Turini, home of some of Alpine’s most memorable rally moments. Renault gathered dozens of vintage models to line the roads, while guests from across the globe were invited to pour over Alpines old and new. Fan site Alpine Planet (no relation) even caught up with someone sure to look familiar to Gran Turismo players (hat tip to Dionisiy):

Considering the close ties Kazunori and Polyphony have with Alpine, we’re certainly excited to see what comes next in Alpine’s rebirth.

    Not bad. Hopefully the car will be converted for RGT-class rallying after it gets put into production.

    I see some of Porsche and TVR on the front, and Aston Martin in the back with a little of a Lambo :D

    That is not bad. Not bad at all. Little bit of an Aston Martin vibe going on (not a bad thing). A very distinctive face, that dual headlamp arrangement hearkens back brilliantly to your roots but still looks very contemporary. Good job, Alpine! Damn good job.

    Am I the only one who thinks that some of those photos could be in-game pictures? Mixed with the real ones? Just a guess but suggesting GT Sport will have improved graphics an Kaz at the show, it doesn’t seem unlikely to me :D

    I cannot help but see the Peugeot RCZ within this car.

    It looks like an Audi TT and a Toyota GT86 had a baby.

    We need an update with this car, even after 6 months :D

      On PS4 probably dude. I wouldn’t expect anymore content for GT6. It is, after all, not current anymore, sadly for anyone still on PS3. GT Sport or GT7 though i’m sure.

    This is great, and I don’t think I see paddles so it could be manual. Either way it’s very pretty.

      The press release says it isn’t a manual. It’s a DCT. There are paddles visible in one of the interior pictures.

    Anyone else think that if this car went to production, it’d be in the same price bracket as the MX5?

    • Feb. 17, 9:21am

      Would be at least £35-£40k if not more.

      The Alpine Vision looks like a Porsche Cayman rival, I would be surprised if prices kick off at less than £35,000.

      That sounds about right.

    Anyone else curious like me that this news appears to becoming us insight into a sneak peak of a car that might be coming to either GTS or rather GT7?

    Wow, a VGT that looks realistic and with a really beautiful design! Never expected this to happen, this is probably one of the few VGT that I will actually love. Let’s see how it drives.

      Umm… its not a VGT. Wish it was, but it isn’t :( .

      Oh god, you’re right @Chameleon, I didn’t read the article xP Now, me very sad ;_;

    Very nice… Even though the rear has quite lot of “VAG” in it. 😁 major A7 resemblance meets a bit of 911..

    We do have an open spot for Alpine on GT6 still. They would be wise to fill that spot since we haven’t had anything new for months…

      I ´m afraid but GT6 will not be updated anymore.

      PS4 is where GTP’ers need to be for new content. GT6’s content dried up in summer last year, obviously because they had to ditch the rest of the VGTs to focus on GT Sport. Which, is due this Spring, ( In free beta form ) yay!! Hopefully it’s still on target… This is PD after all lol.

    Absolutely love the look of this new Alpine. Hope to see it in the flesh someday soon!

    Probably my favourite looking car since the F-type jaguar.
