A while ago Renault announced plans to revive the Alpine brand. But while waiting for the official model to be revealed, Patrick Raoux and four other students have developed a 3D concept inspired by the legendary Alpine sports car.

Called Open’Back, the concept pays tribute to Alpine A106 and Spider Renault-Sport and was built in the spirit of the Berlinette time (60s /70s). The concept features a 2,0 liter 4 cylinder engine with 182 HP and the front train of the Renault Clio II RS.

Talking about hic work, Patrick Raoux said: "Concept’s name i.e. Open’Back is a variant of other commercial names like Fastback, Hatchback, Liftback or Sportsback for that matter and the front face of our Alpine Open’Back was clearly sketched under the Nissan 350Z influence. It has hybrid structure with steel and alloy tubes and profiles, body in plastic material, rear central transversal engines and gearbox from the Renault-Sport range (1.6L to 2.0L, 133hp to 275hp). The power is sent to the rear wheels and the concept weighs less than one tone."
