The debut in society of the new and expected sports of Alpine is increasingly close to. To be presented at the Geneva motor show 2017 the next month of march and we are gradually solving all the unknowns and questions regarding this model that materialize the return to life from the historic French brand of sports. All the work and effort that Renault has put into this project is about to bear fruit.
In the day of yesterday, we published the spy photos most recent of the new Alpine “playing” with the snow and ice in the north of Europe. Well, today we bring to you an interesting infographic that helps us to see at a glance some of the mechanical details of the Alpine AS110. As we already anticipate in exclusive, the range of engines will be composed only for options of gasoline.
One of the blocks that we will be able to find under the hood of the new Alpine will be engine 1.8-liter TCe four-cylinder. Above we have another motor Ect, but with 2.0 liters. In your settings, the more radical and powerful, will be able to be catapulted from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

AS110, AS1 or A120, what name will the new sport of Alpine?
The truth is that with the emergence of this new infographic published by our fellow Alpine Planet arise new questions about the name end that will have the new sports of the French firm. A few weeks ago, we had access to new information on the new Alpine, and we noted that it will be baptized with the name A120, although we cannot rule out other alternatives.
During these last few years we have been referring to the project of the new model of Alpine as AS1, and everything seems to indicate that such designation shall not be used in the production model we’ll see at the Geneva motor show 2017 the next month of march. Here is where come into play the other two options: 120 and AS110.

In the first case, we are faced with a name that would follow a numerical scale upward with respect to the own A110 (aka Berlinette) marketed in the 60’s and 70’s. For its part, the guys of the above-mentioned means that you have carried out this infographic opt for AS110, something like a mix of AS1 and the name of the sport original Alpine.
