2017’s most hotly anticipated cars #10 – The New Alpine 0
February is almost upon us, so our look ahead to some of the year’s most eagerly anticipated new offering needs to not drag its heels or run the risk of sounding dated. Picking up the pace where we left off, is a vehicle that’s been long in the offing, and 2017 is the year it will finally show its face. It’s the new…
Alpine (as yet untitled)
So, this is the year we’ll finally see the first new model from the legendary French stable since 1995 (and its acquisition by Renault). What do we know of the new car? Not an awful lot if truth be told. We know there’ll be a four-cylinder turbo motor mounted between the seats and rear wheels. We also know that there will be a dual-clutch gearbox.
It will be capable of 0-62mph in a nifty 4.5 seconds and will be a contender for the Alfa 4C and Porsche 718 Cayman when it comes to the rally circuits.
As yet, we don’t know what they’ll calling it, or if it will be decent. But if it performs as attractively as the concept looks, it will be worth getting excited about.
