Paying homage to the original A110 launched back in 1961, the modern iteration rides on all-aluminium platform measuring 4 178 mm in overall length with a width of 1 798 mm and height of 1 252 mm, and ticking the scales at 1 080 kg.
As per previous speculation, power will come from a brand new 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine further fettled by Renault Sport with a model’s specific air intake, turbo and exhaust system, for a total output of 188 kW and 320 N.m of torque. Mated to a Getrag developed seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with sports optimised ratios, Alpine claims the A110 will dispatch the 0-100 km/h mark in 4.5 seconds and top out at 250 km/h.
As well as boasting a set of lightweight Otto Fuchs provided 18-inch alloy wheels and one-piece Sabelt bucket seats weighing just over 13 kg apiece, the A110 also features a three mode drive selector (Normal, Sport and Track) that adjust throttle response, steering feedback, the ESC, gearbox and exhaust note.
Boasting a drag coefficient of just 0.32 and Brembo developed brake callipers, the A110 will launch in France at a price of €58 500 (R803 972) for the Primiere Edition with finial pricing expected later. Limited to just 1 955 units, all of which are reportedly already sold out in left-hand-drive form, sales in right-hand-drive markets will commence later.
