2007 Alpine Imprint RLS Concept news, pictures, and information
Making Its Mark: The IMPRINT RLSThe birth of the IMPRINT RLS marks the beginning of a new sonic era. While the exterior flaunts a sleek, elegant, one-of-a-kind style, the interior also houses the core Alpine IMPRINT sound technology – making its mark as the absolute show-stopping vehicle for 2007.
The IMPRINT RLS by birthright started off as a Mercedes Benz R500, and was slowly morphed into a car that transcends all laws of space and time. This futuristic concept-like car was brought to life by Alpine's Advanced Application R&D team, Steve Brown, Gary Bell, Brent Davison wîth the help of Alpine Canada's Glen Swackhamer and Rino Odorico.
Breathing life into the RLS required a complete dismantling, relocating, building, and reinforcing experiment. Extreme modifications include gas and brake pedal relocation to allow the car to be driven from either front seat. To continue Alpine tradition of unconventional door and seat combinations, the IMPRINT RLS features a unique rotating assembly allowing suicide doors to swing into the vehicle wîth the seat attached. In addition to motorized seats, there's motorization going on in the rear wîth a custom motorized amp rack. This rack houses 6 PDX amplifiers that power the entire sound system and §téälthily rotate out of the back of the SÚV.
The body itself took massive hours of fiberglass, duraglas, grinding, primering, sanding, you name it. The end result bodes well for elegance as sleek lines and shadows define intricate details. A custom-mixed Carrizma Candy Cherry Cola paint gives the car a luminous effect, you'd swear the IMPRINT RLS dances depending on how much light shines on it. While the RLS is getting its groove on, you can't miss its shoes: massive 26' and 30' custom TIS model 01 wheels.
The interior compliments the sophisticated theme wîth details such as Italian leather, rich Burl Wood inserts. Near the center console, a unique gauge pod wîth a custom clock and autometer gauges deliver the car's vital signs. Continuous movement from the clock lets you know the IMPRINT RLS is alive and kicking. But most importantly, the interior was strictly designed to house the best sound possible wîth IMPRINT sound technology.
The sound system's supporting cast includes the motorized PDX amplifiers, as mentioned, as well as SPX-17REF component speakers arranged in a D'Appolito configuration, and four SPX-1043D subwoofers to please all listeners. Added options include the Alpine KCA-SC100 which controls a SIRIÚS Satellite Radio Sportster 4, and Alpine KCE-422i Full Speed connection for iPod for quick access of Apple Lossless-encoded music for a high-quality digital music experience.
Listeners swallowed inside the IMPRINT RLS can get a good dose of sound reproduction at its finest. Catch the IMPRINT RLS touring nationwide at select events throughout 2007.Source - Alpine Electronics
