Renault Alpine A120 Sports Coupe Comes in 2017. Renault finally confirms that Alpine A120 will finally be launched in 2017. It should have been faster but due to the failed cooperation between Renault and Caterham. Renault had no choice but working on the coupe alone, and as a result, the project had to be delayed. Renault is planning to launch several high-performance cars, and this 2-seat coupe is going to be the first of many. After Alpine A120, the next in line is a convertible and a more powerful coupe model.
Renault Alpine A120 Coupe Specifications
Exterior, Interior design
If no changes are made again, the new 2017 Renault Alpine A120 coupe design will be very similar to the concept that was shown earlier this year. Overall, this car will be 4.2 meters long and weighs around 1,000 kg. As a matter of fact, Renault tried hard to reduce the weight of this car since this car—and all Alpine future models—will take pride of its low weight and high agility.
Furthermore, lowering the weight is also important to make sure it can compete with its main rival, Alfa Romeo 4C that weighs a little less than 1,000 kg. To achieve this goal, aluminum is used in the construction instead of plastic.
Engine — Renault Alpine A120 Coupe 2018
Power will come from an upgraded version of Renault-Nissan Alliance 4-cylinder unit. This engine has not been produced yet, but the company says it will very soon. There is a high possibility that the high-performance version that will come under Alpine A120’s hood is a 1.8 L turbocharged unit which will also power Renault Sport.

Power output has yet to be announced but we can expect it to be around 300 bhp and it ‘s nice to send the car running to 62 mph from a standstill in less than 4.5 seconds. Furthermore, the engine will be mated to a version of the 6-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox from Renault Clio RS which will send power exclusively to the rear wheels.
