Although it won't be taking part in the centenary edition, the LMDh-compliant Alpine promises to be one of the stars of the show on Friday June 9.


But apparently, the French manufacturer couldn't hold out for another ten days and today, on its social networks, gave us a first glimpse of its future weapon, which is due to contest next year's WEC and therefore the 92nd edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours. While it's still far too early to say, this first visual is very promising, with a light signature reminiscent of the Apenglow concept.


As a reminder, this car - whose name we can't wait to know - is based on a chassis designed by Oreca, who is also responsible for the highly successful Acura ARX-06, winner of the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours. Under the bonnet, according to our information, we should find an engine derived from Mecachrome's 3.4-litre V6 Turbo, known as the V634. 


To find out more, you'll have to wait until Friday 9 June. According to our information, the first crew could be unveiled for the occasion. It will undoubtedly include Frenchmen Nicolas Lapierre and Matthieu Vaxiviere, who will also be in charge of the car's development from July...
