Renault Alpine A110 Preview: Vintage Design & Modern Speeds
Some days ahead of the Geneva Motor Show, Renault finally graced the public with images of the new and upcoming Alpine A1110. As expected, the model is heavily inspired by the older retro-style, but it has also been confirmed that the unit will be fitted with all the best that modern automation has to offer. All details will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva motor show.
As Leftlane News has reported, the silhouette of the new Alpine A110 pays rightful homage to the original model, which heavily dominated international rally events in the 1960s. The unit that was launched in 1961 won the first ever World Rally Championship in 1973, so there is definitely a lot of history to live up to. Aesthetically, it is not as outright vintage as the Volkswagen Beetle, which has barely changed aesthetically over the decades, but there are some notable similarities. These include the elongated headlights, the creased hood, the rough fog lights and the wrap-around rear window.
The technical specifications of the new Alpine A1110 are still unknown at this point, but there have been rumors surrounding the same. The publication claimed that the power will come from a turbocharged 1.8 liter four cylinder engine, which will work a lot like the 1.6-liter turbo four of the Clio RS. Top Gear has noted that it will have something along 250bhp from the turbo four, a 1,100kh kerb weight and a will go from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4.5 seconds.
This is the first time in twenty years that Renault is releasing another generation in its A110 production line. The vision concept of the same was released in the later part of 2016, but the Paris-based car manufacturer is now adding to the hype following the Geneva motor show. The event will begin on March 7 and will finally pull the covers over the new Alpine-badged sports car.

Algeria Set To Produce Local Car Models to Cut Import Expenditure

Rather than continue to import popular car models, the country is set to start producing them locally to boost national needs. This becomes more crucial since the country is facing dwindling oil revenues which could not be wasted on importing cars in the face of the country’s economic needs.
