Alpine A110 mid-engine sports vehicle, which looks to be more extreme than the already severe A110 R introduced last year, has been observed in testing by Alpine. The new model may look similar to the A110 R at first glance, but closer examination shows extra features intended to speed up track times. A ducktail spoiler has also been added, along with a wider rear wing with manual adjustment and flicks on the front fascia. The A110 R’s 18-inch carbon-fiber wheels with aero discs are replaced with new wheels, and the 2024 Alpine A110 R’s brakes have changed brake designs.
You know, the first time I heard about the Alpine car, I was intrigued. Born in the picturesque landscapes of France during the 1950s, the brainchild of Jean Rédélé was inspired by the twisty, adventurous roads of the Alps mountains. Just imagine a car so sleek and lightweight, almost dancing on the roads, yet packed with the spirit of racing – that’s Alpine for you.
And it’s not just about the looks; these cars have a legacy. They’ve raced against the wind, clock, and rivals, emerging victorious numerous times. Sure, brands like Ferrari or BMW might ring a bell more often globally, but ask any car lover in Europe, especially France, and watch their eyes light up at the mention of Alpine. Their recent comeback in the 2010s? It wasn’t just a return; it felt like an old friend coming home after years abroad.
It must be clarified if a more potent variant of the 1.8-liter turbo-4 seen in the Alpine A110 is being evaluated. The engine now has a 296 hp maximum output in both the more powerful A110 R and the less powerful A110 S. A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is the only one available in the A110 2024 lineup, and it should remain the same in any subsequent A110 iteration.
- Engine remains to be stronger 1.8-liter turbo-4 is under evaluation.
- Current maximum torque: 296 hp (both in A110 R and A110 S).
- Gearbox: 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
It’s still being determined what the vehicle would be called if it were to go into production. However, Alpine may choose to utilize the high-performance model names RS or even Trophy, both of which are used by Renault, Alpine’s parent company.
Alpine A110 Launch Date
Alpine has not yet confirmed a new 2024 A110 version, but given that the company will soon switch to a completely electric brand, a hardcore special could be utilized to say goodbye to internal combustion engines. Alpine has previously revealed its seven-model EV portfolio for this decade. The A290, a sporty hatchback based on a fresh Renault 5, will be the first. The new A110 model could be introduced in 2024 when it is due. Future electric vehicle models will also use a revised A110. It’s due sometime in 2026.
- Alpine’s switch to an all-electric brand.
- Potential special edition to farewell internal combustion engines.
- Seven-model EV lineup for the decade.
- First EV model: A290 (a sporty hatchback based on Renault 5).
- New A110 model potential release: 2024.
Some of those electrified Alpines will make it to the United States. The French performance marque declared its intention to start selling in the United States in June. The first of these vehicles is projected to be a pair of crossovers in the same market sectors as the Porsche Macan and Cayenne.
