....for remarkable aerodynamics




Air flow will be a key factor in the new Alpine’s performance and efficiency.



The combination of a flat floor, a technique carried over from the world of supercars and high-level motor racing, and a rear diffuser located beneath the rear bumper will allow significant downforce and excellent stability.



The resulting aerodynamic efficiency has eliminated the need for a rear spoiler and allowed the design team and engineers to achieve the sleek, fluid upper body shape that Alpine owners know and love.
