Introduced in 1961, the original Alpine A110 has attained legendary status thanks to its lightweight, sporty design and numerous wins in the World Rally Championship. Discontinued in 1977, four years after Alpine was purchased by Renault, the A110 is about to return with a modern design and state-of-the-art underpinnings. However, while it was announced in 2012, the sports car designed to revive the Alpine brand has yet to arrive. Instead, the French built a couple of concept vehicles. The A110-50 was shown in 2012, while the Celebration concept was unveiled ahead of the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans as a near-production-ready study.
