Video: Alpine A110 review – new Porsche 718 Cayman rival tested

Alpine A110

The Cayman finally faces a serious threat in the form of an aluminium-based, mid-engined sports car from Dieppe

Alpine is back, so the hashtag goes. The Alpine A110 is the first product of the reborn French sports car company, and it’s special: it has a new, all-aluminium architecture, with its engine in the middle, driving the rear wheels, and it weighs less than 1100kg.

Those are sensational statistics and they make the Alpine A110 sensational to drive. It’s great fun on road or circuit, but there is a catch: at nearly £50,000, it’s as expensive as a Porsche 718 Cayman. Can it match the Porsche to look at, sit in and, crucially, to drive? Find out in this comprehensive review.
