New high-performance Alpine A110 has been teased in new images on social media, ahead of its reveal at Le Mans 2019

Alpine has teased what could be a more powerful version of the A110 sports car across its social media channels.

The new model, which is anticipated to be a hardcore variant of the brand’s Porsche Cayman and Audi TT adversary, is set to be revealed between the 15 and 16 of June at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans race.

When it reaches the UK market, it will act as a rival to the more potent Porsche 718 Cayman S, Audi TT S and the brand new, resurrected Toyota Supra. However, it’s anticipated to have more of a track focus than those cars.

We expect the new, high-performance Alpine A110 will use the same turbocharged 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine as the new Renault Megane RS, with respective power and torque figures of 296bhp and 400Nm. Like the current car, it will feed its power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Alpine’s teaser images hint that the A110’s new, performance-focussed variant will feature a pair of heavily-bolstered, leather-and-Alcantara-trimmed sports seats and redesigned badging, with an orange and carbon-fibre plaque in place of the standard car’s tricolore insignia. Orange highlights are also expected throughout the interior and exterior.

What do you make of the new, higher performance Alpine A110. Let us know in the comments section below…

Hyundai launched its i30 N hot hatch in 2017 and the car immediately made a splash, upsetting the status quo and ruffling the feathers of models such as the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Peugeot 308 GTi. In top Performance spec, however, the Korean hot hatch is undoubtedly a hardcore car, so with the addition of this longer, sleeker i30 Fastback N, the company has softened it off slightly to make it easier to live with. The new bodystyle puts it squarely in the firing line of the Skoda Octavia vRS Challenge – a big hatchback with plenty of performance to rival the Hyundai. Both match up on price, with only £105 difference in the Hyundai’s favour. However, the i30 N also performs a little better on paper. Let’s find out which is the best all-rounder.
