The photo above was first published by Auto Moto, and the French website claims that the alloy paddles behind the steering wheel prove that the new Alpine coupe will feature a dual-clutch transmission.

If the image is in fact a genuine promotional image, the new coupe will feature a classy interior replete with metal switches and highlights, as well as a leather dashboard covering.

In the centre of the dash there's tablet-style display with a built-in watch, while ahead of the driver is a high-resolution digital instrument display.

Alpine has scheduled an event for February 16, at which it is expected that the revived marque will unveil a production coupe based on the Celebration concept.

Reports indicate that the new coupe will be known as A120 in honour of the classic A110. The coupe could go on sale in Australia as early as 2017.

Bernard Ollivier, Alpine's CEO, told CarAdvice last year that development of the vehicle was delayed due to the failure of an earlier 50/50 joint venture with Caterham.
