    It is the model that was unveiled in 2017, a product that combines lightness and dynamism thanks to an optimal weight distribution of its mass (44% in the front and 56% in the rear), a propeller in central rear position and just 1,102 kilos empty, all to offer a driver experience faithful to the original Berlinette. This version of access to the range has the ‘Alpine’ chassis, 2-way adjustable Sport seats, an engine that develops 252 horsepower and a maximum torque of 320 Nm, as well as 296 mm diameter Brembo brakes on both axles. The 17-inch wheels are accompanied by Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires in sizes 205/45 R17 at the front and 235/45 R17 at the rear.

    Alpine A110 GT

    This version is the most oriented towards comfort and elegance, without losing sight of the efficiency in curves. It is distinguished by a storm gray tonality, ‘GT’ badges at the rear and on the door sills and 18-inch wheels in diamond black, as well as by the presence of leather Comfort seats with adjustable blue stitching. on 6 tracks and Park Assist (with reversing camera included). Like the standard A110, it has the ‘Alpine’ chassis, but its 1.8-liter engine develops 300 horsepower and a maximum torque of 340 Nm, accompanied by the sports exhaust system offered by the brand.

    This car is capable of reaching 100 km / h in 4.2 seconds (4.5 s the A110) and its high-performance brakes signed by Brembo boast 320-millimeter bi-material discs on both axles, with orange brake calipers. The tires are the same as the aforementioned access version and their measurements are adapted to the new size: 205/40 R18 on the front axle and 235/40 R18 on the rear.

    Alpine A110 S

    Its about A110 more circuit oriented as it has a specific set-up, an aerodynamic kit, Sabelt Sport seats and optional semi-slick tires. It is distinguished by a unique two-tone body that combines a Fire Orange body with a deep black roof, the S logo at the rear and on the door sills, as well as 18-inch wheels in high-gloss black. Its interior can be fully covered in microfiber with orange stitching and the pedals are made of aluminum.

    To offer optimum performance on the track, Alpine has fitted it with tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect (215/40 R18 front and 245/40 R18 rear) and an aerodynamic kit that allows the top speed to be raised to 275 km / h. This consists of a carbon front sheet, extended fairings at the front under the car to increase the effectiveness of the rear diffuser and flat ground, as well as a carbon rear spoiler. With all this, the load increases by 141 kilos.

    “The new Alpine A110 S is the first A110 to have a rear wing. Multiple tests of the A110 S in the wind tunnel revealed the need for significant downforce, essential to unleash top speed. With the aerodynamic kit we have managed to overcome the challenge. With a top speed of 275 km / h, the beautiful A110 S is both a true beauty and a racing beast ready to challenge the clock, ”says Antony Villain, Director of Alpine Design.
