renault alpine leaked ahead of monaco gp debut

Initially rumored to be based on a Nissan GT-R, the Renault Alpine has been reborn and a lone photo has leaked ahead of the sports car’s planned debut at the Monaco Grand Prix this weekend.

New reports suggest the car is actually based on a tube-frame Megane Trophy race car while using a 400 hp Nissan VQ V6.

Styling for the modern-era Alpine is familiar, borrowing heavily from the Renault DeZir concept, which first bowed at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

While no details are yet available, the car is expected to deliver performance through light weight, though it won’t be a stripped down machine.

Celebrating 50 years since the original Renault Alpine was created, look for more exciting details and photos as we approach the weekend’s race in Monaco.
