We've called the Renault Alpine one of the most outrageous cars of 2012. Crazy, since the vehicle is still just in concept stages.

The veil is, however, lifting and news of a firm 2015 public birth is here. Built in collaboration with Caterham, the car will be built to rival the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster. But, unlike those roadsters, this one will have a distinct French DNA. Not a rival for the power of a Bugatti, but certainly perhaps something that could temper desires and allow us lighter pocketed folks with Francophile dreams a viable option.
