Alpine A110SAlpine has revealed pricing for its new A110S, which joins the Pure and Légende models in the lightweight sportscar line-up. Featuring more power, bespoke suspension settings and upgraded brakes, the A110S offers an even more intense driving experience. Available to reserve now and order from 3 September, the A110S is priced from £56,810.

A true Alpine, the A110S shares its lightweight, mid-engined two-seater layout with other models in the range. A number of key changes, however, deliver enhanced performance, precision and and high speed stability, yet with no loss in everyday usability.

The turbocharged 1.8-litre engine now produces 292hp, an increase of 50hp over the standard car, while peak torque of 320Nm is now available over a wider rev band. There’s also the inclusion of the active sports exhaust that delivers a more emotive engine sound depending on the selected driver mode.

With this increase in performance comes the standard fitment of the Alpine high performance braking system, which includes 320mm bi-material brake discs and Brembo calipers. There are also wider Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres that have been tuned specifically for the A110S.

Further revisions include a ride height lowered by 4mm, plus new springs and hollow anti-roll bars that have been stiffened by 50 and 100 percent respectively. The electronic stability control has also been recalibrated to take advantage of the even greater handling accuracy and improved grip. Crucially, these changes have been engineered so as not to undermine the everyday comfort of the A110S.

Key weight-saving options for the A110S include a £2,208 carbon fibre roof panel that shaves 1.6kg from the 1,114kg kerbweight, plus £1,656 carbon fibre-backed versions of the standard, Dinamica trimmed Sabelt bucket seats.
