Renault pits new concept vs. original Alpine A110 across the Alps
The clip narrowly avoids the pitfall of cheesiness, if for no other reason than we love an excuse to watch these two creations churn their tires in anger. There's just something about watching vintage French tin thrashing about in the Alps that makes us happy.
Of course, back here in reality, the A110-50 would make short work of its predecessor thanks to its 400-horsepower turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 and lightweight carbon fiber bodywork. Then again, the cars we loved in our youth always seem faster through the lens of history. Check out the video below to see what we mean. There's a bonus video down there with some amazing sound, too.
