Alpine A110 Prototype At ‘Ring Is, Most Likely, A New, Hotter Variant

The new Alpine A110 celebrated its second anniversary a couple of months ago, yet a prototype of the mid-engined sports car was spotted at the Nurburgring a few days ago.

If we were to take a guess, we’d say that it’s probably the rumored range-topping version that will sit atop the normal car, much like the Renault Megane RS and its Trophy derivative.

We haven’t brought these two cars into discussion just for the sake of it. The modern A110 is powered by the same engine, namely a 248 hp (252 PS / 185 kW) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque, 1.8-liter turbo-four. The RS Trophy is good for 296 hp (300 PS / 221 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque which, unsurprisingly, is also the rumored output of the more track-focused Alpine.

The same report that spoke about the alleged 300PS variant of the A110, which was rumored to arrive this fall, perhaps at the Frankfurt Motor Show, also speculated about other possible models. One of them was an open-top Porsche 718 Boxster rival that’s tipped to debut next year.

Sportier A110 apart, Alpine is thought to be entering the SUV arena in 2021. The first-ever high-riding vehicle in the reborn brand’s history will reportedly be based on the Mercedes-Benz GLA will also get an electric variant in 2022.

    I always earning proximately $7849 per monthly basis web-based . This really is respectable income source to upgrade from my previous work , In addition to the neatest thing when it comes to it is actually that I now complete all my work mere several hrs per day which simply leaves me more and more of free time instead of what I had before with my family.

    It still hurts me that time I saw it burst into flames few months ago when they were testing the previous/current version, I kinda like this car.

  • Six_Tymes

    A Hotter Variant is what this car should have been from the start, and one that doesn’t burst into flames. Sorry, but that’s the truth.

    • Because only Alpine burn down.

    Overpriced. understyled. Not on anyone’s 1-2-3, pick list.

    • Matt

      … but one of the best driving cars launched in the past year, so if you do buy one you’ll absolutely love driving it and it’s not a ‘me too’ Porsche. The enthusiast’s choice. James May bought one as soon as he drove it…

      • SteersUright

        Wow, you’re both spot on. While no beauty, there is something absolutely charming about this car and I’ve have one over a Cayman.
