33. Alpine A110
The legendary Renault Alpine A110 was a rally legend as well as one of the best sports cars in the early 1970s. But now, it finally has a modern version. For years, Renault teased performance car fans with concepts and announcements. But finally, they have announced a production-ready car.
If you’re familiar with the classic Alpine, you will instantly recognize the shape and idea behind this fabulous car. It’s a small, lightweight sports coupe that comes with a rear-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive. And it provides driving excitement and unparalleled road holding. That was the idea behind the new Alpine A110.
This small coupe weighs just over a ton. Yet it has a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder behind the driver powering the rear wheels. The low weight makes the power more than adequate with 252 HP running through its seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
