Revived lightweight Alpine A110 packs 188 kW four-pot turbo

08.03.2017

Unveiled earlier this month with little technical details provided, Renault owned Alpine has now divulged complete information of its revived A110.

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.
