Its Official Renault and Caterham Announce Partnership

Renault and Caterham today announced their partnership to design, develop and build future sports vehicles. The resulting company or joint venture, of which Caterham will own 50%, will be called The Société des Automobiles Alpine Caterham and be headed by Bernard Ollivier.

The partnership will allow both companies to draw on each others expertise on the development of future models.

The future vehicles will be distinctive, differentiated, and carry the respective DNA of Alpine and Caterham Cars. The vehicles will be built at the Alpine plant in Dieppe, Normandy, in France.

Commenting on the partnership, Bernard Ollivier, CEO of Société des Automobiles Alpine Caterham, said: “I’m very proud of the trust placed in me by both shareholders. The road map for each car is clear and simple: respect the DNA of both Alpine and Caterham Cars. With the passion and expertise of the staff dedicated to this project, we are sure of meeting this aim”.

The Alpine plant in Dieppe is currently dedicated to building the vehicles developed by Renault Sport Technologies, both production (Clio R.S.) and racing models.  Its core business is the assembly of sport vehicles, the assembly and sale of motorsports cars, and the sale of spare parts for motorsports vehicles, including at sports events.

The new partnership, The Société des Automobiles Alpine Caterham, will be effective from January 2013.
