The 2018 Renault Alpine A110 is a fast little car that offers a pure driving philosophy, a return to the roots that channels the Mazda MX 5 but with the right power. It is also a lot like a Lotus designed by Renault, which is not surprising given that his development driver, Rudy Thomann, worked in the department of handling and handling. of Lotus at the beginning of Elise’s creation. But the new French mid-engined coupe that the Lotus does not have is an incredible refinement, which includes a roomy and comfortable interior, though still simple.
Exterior and Interior
The 2018 Renault Alpine A110 seems unique in the world of sports cars today. In fact, it seems that has returned to its origins and has closely followed the design of the original 2018 Renault Alpine A110. The model 2018 follows the same proportions as the original, has the same design for its headlights and the rear window is a direct retraction of the original. The car also has modern signs. The headlights are equipped with LED and xenon lamps, the 18 inch wheels are standard, while at the rear, an exhaust is mounted in the center. The large diffuser of the car, as well as the rear entrance just below the window, gives a really retro look similar to the one Porsche has been making for years.
Instead of simply copying the interior of one of its sedans, Renault entrusted Alpine with the task of creating a brand new cabin. This means that the 2018 Renault Alpine A110 is not only good, it is almost perfect. The driving position is low and all controls are easily accessible. It also includes a wheel mounted engine start button, paddle shift paddles and a set of clearly arranged instruments. The materials seem to be as good as those of their rivals and, despite the fact that they only have two seats, there seems to be plenty of space available inside the cabin.
For its money, the 2018 Renault Alpine A110 comes with a unique engine designed by Renault and Nissan. The 4 liter turbocharged 4 liter in-line crusher can deliver 252 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque, which is close enough to its competitors. The interesting thing is that the car offers a weight/power ratio of 233 horsepower per ton, which is considerably better than most other sports cars. With that, the 2018 Renault Alpine A110 will reach 60 mph from the start in under 4.5 seconds and continue to climb to over 150 mph. All power is transmitted to the rear wheels through a 7 speed automatic dual clutch transmission specially designed by Getrag. At this point, it seems like a more powerful engine is unlikely. However, given the history of Renault Alpine, we would not be surprised if we finally saw an 2018 Renault Alpine A110 of more than 300 horses.
Price and Release Date
