This is Alpenglow, a brand-new concept car from Alpine. 

The futuristic single-seat concept is a hydrogen-powered racecar that looks like it’s from outer space. 

The concept has two storage tanks that flank the driver and a completely transparent cockpit.

The active rear wing is also transparent. 

And in what Alpine describes as a “dream car’s proportions”, the concept is five meters long, two meters wide, and less than a meter high.


The automaker says the concept car is “cast for competition”.

“The extremely long and slender wings are a nod to the endurance A220 from the late 1960s,” it said.

Alpine says the creation is also a glimpse into the brand’s future. 

“Alpenglow’s mighty and lavish design hints at what Alpine cars will be like tomorrow, and at our vision for motorsports moving forward,” Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi said. 

“With hydrogen technology on board, we are strengthening our pledge to bring about a future where emissions are clean and driving pleasure is as real as ever.”

Alpine says the concept is inspired by elements of nature including “water, ice, wind, and steam”. 

The concept is actually named after the “luminous phenomenon in which a horizontal streak of red-tinged light appears on the mountains before sunrise and after sunset”.

The Alpine Alpenglow concept car will make its world premiere at the 2022 Paris Motor Show on October 17.
