The Coolest Renault Alpine Sports Car

The Coolest Renault Alpine Sports Car But Not Enough

The new Renault Alpine Sports Car will be delayed because of the impact of tensions between Renault and Caterham

Renault, a French automaker, and Caterham, a British Auto designer are jointly developing the car, a concept design and styling of the proposed Renault Alpine A110-50 sports car is said to have failed to impress the audience of a secret customer clinic where it was shown.

The design of the upcoming Alpine sports car is reportedly being revised as the initial project has given birth to tensions between Renault and Caterham and had a mixed reception from potential customers.

Consequently, Renault ordered a rethink and want to change, but did not go down well with Caterham, which ultimately creates tensions between them.

So the new Alpine Sports Car project will delay by approximately one year. The previous plan will launch on the next 2015, maybe it will launch in late 2016 at the earliest.
