Photo spies spotted a test sample of the novelty on the Nürburgring track. A special Alpine A110 prototype with camouflaged front and rear ends was discovered during testing. The French sports car showcases some interesting details typical of a more than discreet facelift. The debut of the model should take place in 2023.
The new generation Alpine A110 was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and went on sale later that year. It has been on sale for a little over three and a half years now, and this is just the middle of its commercial life, which means the time has come for an update. The sports car was spotted during test drives on the Nürburgring, camouflaged at the front and rear.
Spy photos do not give a clear picture of what changes should occur, but there are some details that can be noted. Although no change is visible on the front panel, it will still happen.
Although the bumper remained unchanged, the headlights of the sports car were modified. Alpine has taken great care to mask the top of the main headlights, exactly the part that needs to be changed, with a trend towards more stylized lines. The rear of the Alpine A110 keeps all of its lines intact, and there are also attractive taillights.
The interior will also undergo some changes, such as new materials and equipment, safety assistants and a redesigned multimedia system.The 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine will also receive a significant improvement, breaking the 300 hp barrier, along with tuning a chassis that improves performance and comfort on the road.
That’s enough for the Alpine A110 to survive the second half of its commercial life, ending in 2024, leaving it on the market for a total of seven years. After that, the sports car with a gasoline engine will be replaced by an electric model, which will be released in the middle of the decade.
