The styling is influenced by a wide variety of sources, from nature to architecture
The Alpine Renaissance concept is a creation of Mayeul Walser, a Transport Design student at CREAPOLE-ESDI in Paris.

The concept was designed as a theoretical proposal for a car to launch the Alpine brand back into the limelight. Walser has envisaged the return of Alpine as a premium brand, and while the Alpine A110 was undoubtedly the most famous Alpine model the Renaissance concept is influenced by the marque as whole rather than just a single model.

The aim of the Alpine Renaissance project was to create a driver's car with a modern and fluid exterior design. The inspiration comes from a variety of sources including nature, and in particular from wind. This can be seen in the way the hood and panoramic windscreen flow together in a seamless manner, and in the 'S' shaped line flowing down alongside the headlight and into the lower portion of the bodywork. The complicated and intricate design style of architect Frank Ghery has also had a strong influence on the overall shape of the Alpine Renaissance. The highly reflective paint is similar to the mirrored coverings used on many of Ghery's buildings.

The main structure of the Alpine Renaissance concept is comprised of two elements. The carbon fibre chassis is visible protruding from the front, acting as a frame for the grille, and at the sides where it helps make up the inner portion of the lateral air intakes. The body itself is formed from fibre glass.

The dimensions of the Alpine Renaissance are a length of 4,100 mm (161 inches), a height of 1,200 mm (47 inches) and a width
of 1,690 mm (66.5 inches). The wheelbase is 2,500 mm (98 inches). The proposed powerplant for the concept is a 300 hp (220kW) electric motor.
