Sometimes you don't need 670 hp to have fun.

The Alpine's 250 are more than enough.

The A110 is already a huge succes with delivery times off over 15 months now.

Beautiful Nose on the Alpine...

One day I will get to drive one S

Overall a fine car.

I have been offered a test drive so when i decide to call them and jump in the store i will try it out. If that is a good idea i very doubt, because i know i will probably like it too much. Maybe one advantage for now is the Mégane RS i have since 2 month...  

Megane RS.....

is a great looking car, love the design of the front. I just came back from a fun 2 hour drive, in the summer the window is small, from 5am to 6:30am where the weather is cool enough to have some fun with Al Fresco driving. HAGWE, S ...  

Early in the morning.

Not sure if i could cope with your heat over there. Soon i'll be off to the holy land to visit my daughter and drive a 60 hp rental in the heat. Fortunately i'll be a few thousand km more above the equator. Does your car catch a lot of sun during the day ... 

Safe Travels...

Hope you have fun on your visit, I think you can handle the heat because it is dry heat and not humid. Its hidden inside my house so it doesn't see much sun during the day. I used to have an Italian car many years ago and I agree about the melting LooooL,... 

Didn't try it.

My friend did the test drive before ordering it . I followed in the Mégane, needless to say it was pure hooliganism .... .

In which case let me rephrase the question...

How’s the new Megane RS?

A great car !

Pretty fast off course in a straight, but that is not the purpose of this car. Although it is a great highway cruiser at any speed, be it 90, 120 or 160 kph. Brakes are stunning ! EDC gearbox is fine, but maybe one of the 'lesser' parts on this car. Overa... 

Thanks for your review, Filip!

Have been toying with the idea for a while.

It is a great allrounder, if not the best in it's class.

All in one package containing: Super performance. Super comfort ( non cup chassis, maybe the cup chassis will do as well ). Suspension with hydraulic bump stops comes straight out of the rallye scene. Manual or Auto, both are good. Super cool looks. Super... 

You can have just 100 hp and have fun...

Even 75 hp will do.

 
 By: bimbeano : July 13th, 2018-15:33
But then 100 is better and 200+ is supercool .... or maybe not . BTW ... the brakes (Brembo 355 mm) on the Mégane RS are simply astounding !!! ...  

I love big brakes!

 
 By: patrick_y : July 15th, 2018-11:18
My first car had big Brembos up front. My current car has these massive 8 piston front rotors with four brake pads that I enjoy looking at! They're as long as a loaf of bread.

It is unique in many ways i think.

The overall package just seems so right. This will be a French succes-story .... unlike the football match against Croatia which they will loose

Wish we had them in the US

 
 By: Deardorff8x10 : July 14th, 2018-18:28
The originals do exist here and are great to drive, but tiny!

A shame for Renault freaks in the US.

 
 By: bimbeano : July 15th, 2018-12:41
Indeed the original A110 is extremely tiny. I never tried one but i suspect i'd better not as i have no budget for one :-(
