The Alpine brand has presented its new car with the A480 index. This car will take part in the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans. Overall, the new car is identical to the Rebellion R-13, which took part in the endurance race last year in the LMP1 category.
According to the “Central News Service”, the sports car Alpine A480 is built on the Oreca chassis and is powered by a 4.5-liter engine from Gibson Technology. Only one such car will be presented in the championship, which will be driven by racers Nicolas Lapierre, Andre Negrao and Mathieu Vaxiviere.
