Hardcore New Alpine A110 S : No, It’s Still Not Coming To North America

The Alpine A110, which was reborn in 2017, will get a new “S” trim for a more focused and high performance driving experience

The original Alpine A110, from the 60s and 70s, was and remains a much loved sports car. So much so that Alpine reintroduced the nameplate in 2017. Today, they announce a more performance- and driving-oriented version which will simply be known as the A110 S.

For starters, the Alpine is powered by a NissanRenault developed turbocharged 1.8-litre 4-cylinder. It produces 249-horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, is mounted behind the occupants, can push the car to 100 km/h in only 4.5 seconds.

The new “S” will see its boost rise with a resulting extra 49-horsepower. The final tally will be 288 however torque remains unchanged but will be on tap longer. The 0-100 km/h sprint drops by 0.1 seconds but the true difference will be found in the drive.

The Alpine A110 S will gain new wheels and wider Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires, and the car drops 4mm in ride height. The key improvements are stiffer coil suspension springs with retuned dampers and stiffer anti-roll bars.

The car is not cheap, however. It will retails for £58,700 before options, or nearly £13,000 more than the base model.
