Alpine Vision Gran Turismo concept front track

Virtual Renault Alpine sports car appears in Playstation game, plus real-life version hints at brand's return

2015-01-28 07:00

Renault has revealed a mad-looking sports car concept for the the Gran Turismo 6 Playstation 4 game. Called the Alpine Vision Gran Turismo, it's also backed up with a full-scale model revealed in Paris that provides a glimpse of Renault's future plans for the sub-brand.

The concept will only be able to drive virtually on the forthcoming Gran Turismo 6 game, available as a free update in March 2015. But don't think this is just a fantasy, as the French firm is strongly hinting at a return for the Alpine moniker on production models. 


We've previously seen prototypes of what are rumoured to be Renault Alpine sports cars testing, and a spokesman at the firm told us back in 2013 that the badge would make a return. However, this striking concept is unlikely to be the first car it debuts, with its dramatic styling and exposed 'bubble' cockpit. But the firm has gone to the trouble of debuting a full-scale physcial model at the 2015 Festival Automobile International in Paris.


The orange and blue colour scheme harks back to 1960s racing Alpines, and Renault says the model heralds "a new chapter in the make's revival" in motorsport and possibly production form. Vital stats (for the game at least) show a 4.5-litre V8 with 445bhp, and a carbon-monocoque chassis weighing just 900kg. The top speed is quoted as nearly 200mph.

Does the idea of a return of the Alpine brand excite you? Let us know in the comments below.
