Renault has pulled the wraps from the virtual concept that will represent the reborn Alpine brand in Sony’s new Vision Gran Turismo racing game.

Joining digital rivals from across the motoring spectrum, the new Alpine Vision Gran Turismo concept may just be the new PlayStation game’s wildest racer yet.

As with the other new concept entrants, Vision Gran Turismo celebrates 15 years of the popular racing simulator, but Renault says its concept is also a tribute to 60 years of the Alpine brand.

The carmaker says that its new barchetta-styled racer wears design features that pay homage both to the Alpine brand’s past and previews the coming new roadgoing 2016 sports car.

“The design needed to contribute to the lightweight feel and convey an impression to the driver of being at one with the machine,” Alpine design chief Antony Villain said.

“We even took advantage of the exercise to subtly conceal several details that are directly inspired by the future Alpine, which will see the light in 2016… but I can't give any more away about that..."

Elements of the iconic Alpine A110 can be seen through the front, while the finned rear evokes images of the A210 and A220 racing cars.

Although only a virtual concept, Renault has detailed a 4.5 litre V8 engine at the heart of the Alpine racer, producing a healthy 335kW and 580Nm of torque.

The big V8 is mated to a seven-speed sequential shifter, propelling the 900kg rear-wheel-drive racer to a 320km/h maximum speed.

Alpine’s eventual production sports car is more likely to draw power from a smaller 1.6 or 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbo engine from Renault, enabling it to enter as a rival to Porsche’s Cayman and the new Alfa Romeo 4C.
