Bulgaria, Brazil and Mexico were three of the countries licensed to build the Alpine A110 under license in the sixties and seventies. With the revival of the former Renault rally racing brand, Mexico, whose Dinalpin sold the earlier iteration, wants to do it again – but this time with no connection to the parent company. It's called Project SST-77 and it is being headed by Miguel Jimenez, with the aims of developing a "low capacity, low weight, agile, high performance" sports car.

The ultimate plan is to put a new fiberglass body designed by Alejandro Castañeda on top of a chassis being laid out by Mexican Auto Design, headquartered in the same city where Dinalpin fabricated Alpines decades ago. There's no timeline and no other details about what's going into the project, but we'll keep an eye out for any updates.

      All the best car designers use crayons. It makes the hood scoops look 3D

      A 110-50 is better but it doesn't like Alpine, I don't like the red, the blue render in closer to the original, I remember one design I think for a russian boy much better than Renault Alpine 50 anniversary design.

      this is not a Dinalpin....in fact if anything this is merely the imagination of an amateur rendering. The original Dinalpin story is rooted deep within Renault themselves, as is the Bulgarpin story. It wasn't just done by random wishes..

      Just build the A110-50. That was my screen saver for a year. Love that car.
