When Kimi Räikkönen visited Aubevoye Centre

Back in September 2012, the Aubevoye Technical Centre welcomed Kimi Räikkönen. The then Lotus F1 Team pilot learned about the benches where the Renault Clio IV was being tested at the moment, got to drive Alpine concept A110-50 and meet Renault employees.

The pilot was one of the happy few to have driven the then New Renault Clio IV before its official release at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

He then got behind the wheel of Mégane R.S. showcasing Lotus F1 Team livery, with some lucky Renault employees.

Axel Breun, Design Director of Concept & Showcar introduced Alpine A110-50, the concept released for the Berlinette's 50th anniversary.

Finally, the ex-rally champion got a taste of all-electric driving, after sitting in the urban two-seater Renault Twizy.
