Renault has revealed a new mid-engined sports car that honors curved design of the original 60s Alpine A110 ‘Berlinette’ 60s A110 used to be one of my favourite cars when i was young, at least one that i can really see on the streets.
Mid-engined, 1.8-litre turbo 4-cylinder engine producing 249hp. The new A110 use lightweight aluminium construction, so weights only 1,080kg.

A collaboration between two Italian companies, Maggiora and Carrozzeria Viotti brought us this car, designed honoring the 60s Willys Interlagos. I´m very happy because the Interlagos was in turn a licensed version of one of my favourite cars: the Alpine A108. The 60s Interlagos was built by Willys’ Brazilian arm — the same Willys that built the famous MB, later civilian Jeep CJ.
This car is not only beauty, underneath the AW 380′s retro body are Porsche underpinnings, with a 3.8-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder boxer engine.
