Sketch of the Alpine A110 Cup Racer gives us chills

French automaker Alpine was founded in 1955 by Jean Rédélé, and was bought by Renault in the 1970s. Subsequently, Alpine production ceased in 1995. This year, the company was reborn as they introduced the new Alpine A110. The company is hoping to continue its success with this model. They also have plans to develop a small SUV to put in the same segment as the Porsche Macan.

It didn’t take long as the A110 is scheduled to make a debut soon. The A110 will come out in two variants, a racing version and a road legal version. And recently, the company revealed a sketch of what looks like the race car variant. The image does not say a lot because only the top part of the front fascia can be seen. But looking at the image, it seems like the road going version will have a more aggressive look, with its pronounced diffuser, a tow hook, and some more details to the hood - all of which helps improve airflow.

Under the hood of the road-going model will be a 1.8 liter turbocharged engine that can produce 252 horsepower (188 kilowatts) and 236 pound feet (320 Newton-metres) of torque. Overall, it weighs about 2,380 pounds (1,080 kilograms), which is considerably pretty lightweight.

Alpine has revealed the production version of the 2018 A110. Prior to this release, the brand implemented a rather long campaign which started with the “Celebration” and followed it up with the “Vision.” For those familiar with the history of this brand, the A110 is the iconic name of the same model released from 1961 and to 1977. With the use of the name plus the fact that its design is clearly retro-inspired, it is clear the brand hopes it would go against the Porsche Cayman.

It was back in 2015 when the Alpine Celebration was first unveiled at the Le Mans. Back then, it showed that the design paid tribute to the class A110 Berlinetta. By 2016, the Alpine Vision concept was shown. This was intended as a preview of the production version. The design of this version was clearly an evolution of the Celebration.

Looking at how the body of the2018 A110 is designed, there is no doubt that it traces its heritage to the “Berlinette.” Still, a large part of the design reveals that there are various modern touches. In addition to fully utilizing architecture that uses mainly aluminum, the new A110 will have a floor that is totally flat. By having a diffuser in the rear, it allowed the brand to refrain from having a spoiler in this area while improving the aerodynamics. Aside from the use of an aluminum-intensive body, the brand also be fitted with bespoke lightweight seats in an attempt to lower the weight further. The result is more than excellent as each of the seats weighs around 28.8 pounds (13.1 kilograms), giving this rear-wheel drive coupe a rumored curb weight of around 2,204 pounds (1,000 kilograms).
