Founded in 1955, the brand has set itself apart with its French-style sports cars. In 2018, the brand presents the new A110, a sports car faithful to Alpine’s timeless principles of compactness, lightness, agility and driving pleasure. In 2021, Alpine Cars, Renault Sport Cars and Renault Sport Racing have joined forces under the Alpine flagship. Alpine has become the dedicated brand to innovative, authentic, and exclusive sportscars of Groupe Renault, benefiting from the heritage and craftmanship of its historic plant in Dieppe, as well as the engineering mastery from the Formula 1 and Renault Sport teams. A "dream garage" made up of exclusive and futuristic electric sports cars, generating dreams but destined for real life, will soon make up the brand's range.
It is impossible to speak about Alpine without mentioning racing. Alpine was conceived by a race driver known for his rallying results in the 60s and 70s. The brand has left an indelible mark in all fields of motorsport. Among the accolades won are the World Rally Championship 1973 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1978. Alpine is now present in motorsport through Alpine Elf Europa Cup and Alpine Elf Matmut Endurance Team in partnership with Signatech, but also through cars specially designed for GT4 and Rally competitions. Signatech Alpine team won the World Endurance Championship in 2016 and 2019 (LMP2), and the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2016, 2018 and 2019. .
Alpine and Renault have a long racing history with successes in different categories, in Formula 1, rally and endurance. Competition is at the core of Alpine’s ambitious plans, with Formula 1 being central to the brand’s motorsports strategy. From 2021, the Alpine F1 team races against some of the most prestigious names in the automotive industry and is a part of the very exclusive club of full-fledged factory teams.
Alpine’s next product generation - 100% electric sports cars - will leverage Groupe Renault’s latest innovations and will benefit from Alpine F1 Team technology and expertise: aerodynamics, efficient energy management, safety systems and connectivity solutions derived from F1’s high-performance in data analysis and processing that will bring a significant competitive advantage to the Alpine products.
"The craftsmanship from our plant in Dieppe, the engineering mastery from our Formula 1 and Renault Sport teams will shine through our tech-infused, 100% electric line-up, taking the beautiful Alpine name to the future. We’ll be on the tracks and on the roads, authentic and high-tech, disruptive & passionate."
