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.

When dash cams are used in conjunction with black box technology – specifically, accelerometers which record high G-forces when a car is driven in an erratic or dangerous manner – young people drive more carefully if they think the data may be shared with their parents. • The history of the driving test In a report entitled ‘Keeping Young Drivers Safe During Early Licensure’, commissioned by the RAC Foundation, Dr Bruce Simons-Morton says the technology essentially gives parents a permanent presence in their children’s cars. This helps deal with the catch-22 situation young drivers often find themselves in, where they need to drive on the road to get more experience, but in doin..
