New Alpine to feature motorsport inspired aerodynamics

Further details of the new Alpine sports car have been revealed - focusing on the car’s aerodynamics.

Set to debut in Geneva, the new Alpine will feature a flat floor and a rear diffuser for what the company describes as ‘remarkable aerodynamics’.

Air flow will be a key factor in the new Alpine’s performance and efficiency. The combination of a flat floor, a technique carried over from the world of supercars and high-level motor racing, and a rear diffuser located beneath the rear bumper will allow ‘significant downforce and excellent stability’.

The resulting aerodynamic efficiency has eliminated the need for a rear spoiler and allowed the design team and engineers to achieve the sleek upper body shape that stays true to the Alpine A110 Berlinette of the 1960s that inspires the 2017 car.

A limited number of 1,955 cars, a nod to the year when company was founded, will go on sale later in the year as Alpine ‘Première Edition’ models. Pricing is expected to be between €55,000 (Approx. £46k) and €60,000 (Approx. £50K).
