2018 Renault Alpine A120 Premiere Edition — Alpine was once a household name in the automobile world. Especially with its legendary A110 sports car that was first produced back in 1961. However, when Renault’s sub-brand went south, A110 was also affected. And, the production finally stopped in 1977.
Thankfully, after four decades since the production ceased, Renault finally decided to bring the legendary sports car back to life under the name Alpine 1120 Premiere Edition.
2018 Renault Alpine A120 Premiere Edition Specifications
The company recently teased the cars through a video that shows three camouflaged units of the new 2018 Renault Alpine A120 Premiere Edition model. Even under such a heavy disguise, it is not that hard to decipher that Alpine Premiere Edition bears a huge resemblance to Alpine Vision concept . At least from its shape and some of the styling elements.
The most noteworthy exterior feature that also looks similar to Alpine Vision concept is its headlight. However, if we take a look a little bit closer, we can notice that the graphic in the Premier Edition’s twin round headlight is different. To spice up the exterior, even more, the customers will be offered three choices of body paint color, Bleu Alpine, Blanc Solaire and Noir Profond.
No words yet regarding the interior. However, Renault has confirmed that each and every car will get the production number marked on the center console.
