Alpine Vision Concept previews 2017 model

The Alpine Vision is a near-production evolution of the Celebration Concept presented at Le Mans on last June.


The final production model of the mid-engined, two-seater lightweight coupé will be manufactured in Dieppe, France, and will go on sale from 2017, initially in Europe and subsequently across the rest of the world.

Capable of printing from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, the Alpine Vision is an essential, authentic sportscar focused on driving pleasure in purest form.

Exterior Design

The exterior is virtually the same as the Celebration Concept, without some of the racing-oriented features.

The car’s stance is defined by its low, arched profile and curved roofline, taking inspiration from the A110 historic model.

The muscular front end features additional twin round headlights and a sculpted hood – both reminiscent of the car’s historic predecessor.

The sculpted sides are characterized by the C-shaped sharp line that creates a distinctive graphic theme. The flowing lines of the roof contour and shoulders gently descend towards the rear end to form an elongated tail incorporating horizontal rear lights.

Its diamond turned wheels suggest elegance and speed, while the muscular stern integrates air intakes into the rear panels to facilitate engine cooling.

The elongated rear lights incorporate a distinctive X-shaped lighting signature and the design of the rear window similarly pays tribute to the iconic shape made popular by the A110 back in its day.

Alpine Director of Design Antony Villain explains: “The Alpine Vision show car ticks all the boxes expected of a modern, exclusive Alpine sports car.

“It blends a fiery spirit inspired by motorsport success, with Alpine’s legendary expertise and a French flavour that can be found in every detail. The Alpine Vision is aimed at aficionados and connoisseurs, and 80% of the style of our forthcoming road car will be reflected in it.”

The cabin look blends a modernity with heritage-inspired elements, with materials ranging from leather and aluminium to microfiber fabrics and carbon fiber.

The two pedals and aluminium footrest feature a three-triangle pattern symbolizing Alpine peaks. The three-spoke steering wheel, also in aluminium, has a thick rim trimmed in topstitched black leather.

The center console rests upon a prominent, leather- trimmed aluminium structure. Taking cues from an aircraft cockpit, it appears to be floating inside the cabin. It houses a multimedia touch-screen tablet topped by a circular stopwatch.

The backlit door opening control contrasts with the damasked black leather door panel trim, which is highlighted by white topstitching.
