The upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed will see Renault performing the UK premiere of its new Alpine A110-50 concept car, built to celebrate 50th anniversary of iconic A110 Berlinette.
Renault said that the 400-horsepower concept sports car will be one of the firm's models to take part in the famous 1.16-mile (1.87km) festival hill climb, the other vehicles being the RS01 and RE40 Formula 1 cars, the rally-winning R5 Maxi Turbo, Alpine A443 and the current Mégane Trophy racer.
The French brand's vehicles will be driven by Carlos Tavares, Chief Operating Officer of Renault, as well as Alain Prost, Jean Ragnotti and other well-known Renault drivers.
Over the course of the four-day festival from June 28 to July 1, Renault will also display a number of classic, present and future models such as the Type K-fitted with Renault’s first four-cylinder engine, which won the Paris-Vienna race in 1902, the Viva Grand Sport from 1935, plus the current Clio and Mégane RS and the pure electric Zoe supermini.
The automaker also noted, "One huge surprise is also sure to cause quite a stir," but did not elaborate further.
