Jean-Reyélé was a Dieppe garage proprietor who started becoming a prominent figure in the racing community after he built the Renault 4CV, which was one of the first French cars made following the Second World War. Through its association with Renault, Alpine was purchased by the company in 1973.
In 1976, Renault Sport, which was the company's competition division, merged with Alpine to create the Alpine brand. The brand was relaunched in 2017 with the launch of the A110. In January 2021, Renault Sport was once again merged with Alpine to form a new business unit.
