    ...crazy!

    Looks like a modern take on the Auto Union.

    Looks like it has air brakes.

    It has that futuristic look that rivals the Auto Unions.

    This does look pretty cool and I cannot wait to find out some technical details.

    VGT has given us some wonderful cars to date and we are due so many more too. Lamborghini, I'm waiting...

    The VGT thread has a decent discussion and comparison ongoing if you want.

    Another VGT with interior.

    Here's fingers crossed we can paint it.

    It's odd to see how many times has Alpine's design changed: it went from "pivoting car" to "two bonded bodies" to "futuristic speeder", while having several teaser images on the brand's Twitter page. Not that I'm complaning though, it still looks really unique in its own way.

    If these are indeed the final designs, it might actually become only the 3rd VGT car (after the VW and the Chaparral) to have a modeled interior during racing. (cars whose interiors appear only in Photomode don't count). I can't wait to see the finished product, and if it isn't paintable, at least it should have a cool livery to go with it.

    I was kinda hoping they'd go with their previous teaser (like in my avatar) but this one looks pretty cool too.. I do hope it'll be paintable.. it gives a lot more use to the car, 'cos a whole field of the same colored (or only a hand full of color options) cars sucks big time..

    Or at least provide more than one colour for the car. That helps too. Cars like the Infiniti VGT come in many colours, while cars like the Mazda only have one. Hopefully PD\Alpine goes for the first rather than the latter...

    It looks sleek, but not aerodynamic...

    So, you believe that it would be a February car? If that's the case, what VGT car would come in January? Usually there's at least one VGT car per month.

    Nope. That show goes on for 5 days, 4 of those being in January. 28th is a Wednesday so it could be released on that day alongside it's unveiling at the show. It's more than likely it'll be released in January if that is the case.

    It resembles alot of Alpine's old le mans race cars, especially the rear "side wings".

    Definitely where the inspiration came from IMO. :tup::tup:

    That could be. It could be unveiled during the 2nd or 3rd day of the event, and that's still January. Lest PD decides to only add the car during early February...

    The old Twitter teasers also had that design cue, the long tail and the "side wings". The only difference is that the original Twitter images showed a crazier-looking car.

    Proud to be an "Alpine Boy!" :D

    It seems like this car teased by automoto.fr is the road version of the other one posted earlier on twitter. I don't want to speak too fast but we could have both. :)

    Possible, but rather unlikely. The only VGT car that had two versions was the Mercedes (and we still never know why did it have two versions), no other VGT brand released two versions of one VGT. The Automoto.fr sketch will probably be the one we get and the one to be unveiled at Paris.

    Reminds me of a more complex "mach 5"

    I like the look of this car and it somewhat reminds me of this.

    There appears to be a two body thing going on with the aero, still . There's an inner teardrop shaped bit and the outer gubbins to house those pesky wheels.

    I eagerly await details, assuming there's any kind of engineering motivation for its form, and not "just" design.

    Speaking of that tear drop area, where would be the car's tailights? In the inner side of the "side wings"? The exhaust exits would be in the center of the tear drop, I'd take it. And the two body thing still exisiting within these sketches? Guess Alpine wouldn't just take that idea away from the car completely...

    The concept drawing makes sense now, which I also prefered of the two. The rear just needed to be slightly smaller.

    Not a fan of the one we might be getting.

    I hope it's a small machine.
