See Renault’s A110-50 Concept in action
Watch rally-ace Ragnotti race 400bhp concept against its classic namesake
If today's Michael Schumacher were to race his younger, Ferrari-driving, championship-winning self from a few years ago, who d'you think would win? Renault had a similar thought, albeit involving rally-driver Jean Ragnotti.
This video, which has just trickled onto the French firm's website, shows the great sidewaysists giving Renault's tasty A110-50 Alpine concept a jolly good drubbing down an Alp, while simultaneously racing himself in a classic '62 Alpine A110. Which is a bit confusing. But also wondrous.
If you've forgotten about the A110-50, it was this rather lovely concept that debuted at May's Monaco Grand Prix with a race-derived 4.0-litre V6 pushing 400bhp, a sequential gearbox, fully adjustable dampers and no silencers.
Now watch it get ragged down a mountain.
