Much time has passed since we knew that Renault had in mind to revive the prestigious French brand of sports. With the introduction of the Renault Alpine Vision Concept at the beginning of this year, the signature gala showed us his particular vision of what they will look like the awaited new French sports. The new Alpine AS1 2017. A few months later, here’s a first look at this sport.

And that is, our photographers have managed to hunt for the first time with its objectives to the new Alpine AS1 during a testing session. So, it is the first time that we get to photograph the new AS1 and in your production version. Although the unit pictured is completely covered with a camouflage vinyl with different shades of blue, some of their traits aesthetic make it quickly recognizable.

Recall that to date what we’d seen rolling along the road were a few mules test Alpine AS1 using as a basis a Lotus Elise. After the divorce from Caterham with Renault at the beginning of 2014, the French brand continued with the project Alpine AS1. And though its development has been very slow, has not stopped in any moment. These spy photos show.

We can rule out his debut during the upcoming Paris motor show 2016 because, as we said at the beginning of the article, it is the first time that the new Alpine AS1 is left to see in your production version. The project is in a very advanced stage but is not finished. It is therefore more plausible is that Renault choose to publicize during the Geneva motor show 2017 the next year.
