Italian design students create supercar concept with Alpine guidance

A hydrogen-powered supercar concept has been created by 28 Masters students studying transportation design at the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Turin, Italy, in collaboration with Alpine automotive. 

The concept is named A4810 in recognition of the 4,810-meter altitude of Mont Blanc, the tallest and most emblematic peak in the Alps, and which sits at the border between Italy and France, symbolizing the link between the Italian design school and the French sports car company.

“The A4810 is a car that embraces next-generation technologies while also championing the traditional characteristics of the Alpine brand that was founded in 1955,” according to an Alpine news release. “A model that is not only technological advanced but also environmentally friendly, the A4810 provides a glimpse into the future supercars.


“The student-led project is an ideal way for Alpine to broaden its horizons to new generations of designers and drivers.”

The two-seat Berlinetta sports car adapts the most forward-looking application of a sustainable hydrogen powertrain with the latest in supercar aesthetics. 

“The French spirit has been skillfully preserved: while avoiding the pitfalls of unnecessary formal elements, designers focused on the overlapping layers and sculptural aspects of the car’s silhouette,” the release says. “The bi-tone colors, matte-black, and carbon-fiber highlights create a bold contrast with each part of the car, making them stand out according to their function: aerodynamic, mechanical or merely formal.”
