Renault names new Alpine

Renault is to call its new Alpine sports car the A110, writes Brian Byrne.

With a somewhat retro look but sleekly modern in its execution, the A110 is aimed at carving out a section of the market currently dominated by the Audi TT and the Porsche 718 Cayman.

A110 is the name of a coupe which had a successful rally career in the 70s.

A 250ho 1.8 engine is being speculated on at the moment, with a 0-100km/h in the 4.5s region.
