Renault returns to Goodwood

After a short absence, Renault will be returning to the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show.

Renault has chosen the 2012 Festival celebrate 110 years of its engine expertise, and to debut a number of interesting and important new models and concepts.

The French firm will be displaying some of the French marque's most iconic vehicles at Goodwood, including the Type K - fitted with Renault's first 4 cylinder engine - which won the Paris to Vienna race in 1902, as well as the 1935 Viva Grand Sport, the legendary Alpine A110, plus the contemporary Megane Renaultsport and Clio Renaultsport.

Renault's all-electric ZOE will be making its British debut, and its new electric Twizy urban commuter will also get its UK public airing in the Goodwood Moving Motor Show.

The brand new Alpine A110-50 concept, built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the famous Alpine A110 Berlinette, will be tackling the famed Goodwood hillclimb. The A110-50 will be joined up the hill by the RS01 and RE40 Formula 1 cars, the rally-winning R5 Maxi Turbo, the Alpine A443, and the Megane Trophy. As an additional treat for spectators, these cars will be driven by Alain Prost, Jean Ragnotti and Carlos Tavares, Chief Operating Officer of Renault.

The 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from 28th June to 1st July.
