Alpine A110 (2018–)

Model History

March 2017

Alpine returns with the A110

The A110 features a full aluminium platform and upper body for optimum weight saving and agility. Key specifications of the A110 will be announced during Alpine’s press conference at the Geneva International Motor Show.

The new Alpine A110 is the first production car to carry the Alpine brand since the launch of the A610 in 1991. It has an aluminium chassis for optimum weight saving and agility. In fact it weighs just 1080kg - about the same as a Ford Fiesta.

Dimensions are 4,178mm long, 1,798mm wide and 1,252mm high.

It will also debut a new 1.8-litre turbocharged engine - a joint development between Renault and Nissan - which has 252PS and peak torque of 320Nm. While they're not big numbers compared to some of the competition, the fact it's so light will give it a 0-62mph time in 4.5 seconds. That's pretty swift...

Given the lightweight approach of the A110 it's surprising that it only comes with a DCT automatic gearbox, albeit with seven speeds. The Alpine also has different driving modes - normal, sport and track - which alter the steering, exhaust sound and engine.

Inside, Alpine is promising 'top quality materials' with leather upholstery, aluminium trim and carbon fibre - because aas we know, nothing says 'performance car' more than some nice carbon fibre trim.

The A110 costs 58,500 Euros in France, equivalent to around £51,000. Special Première Edition at launch limited to 1955 cars.

March 2018

Alpine unveiled two new versions of the A110

Sharing their technical specifications with the A110 Première Edition (which was limited to 1955 examples and sold out within five days of going on sale) the A110 Pure and A110 Légende offer two different characters. The Pure is the A110 at its most driver-focused: closest in spirit to the original A110 Berlinette that won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1973. The Légende's grand touring credentials and everyday usability, are underpinned by six-way adjustable comfort seats and higher equipment level.

The Pure and Légende are based upon the same lightweight and exceptionally strong aluminium chassis as the Première Edition, which forms the basis for the A110’s trademark agility and handling precision. Mounted immediately behind the two-seater cabin the turbocharged 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine, with a peak power output of 252PS (248hp), delivers thrilling performance, while double wishbone suspension ensures all versions of the A110 exhibit the dynamic poise and responsiveness of a true Alpine.

UK pricing announced

A110 Pure and A110 Legende More driver-centred, the A110 Pure - priced at £46,905 - focuses on the driver/machine connection and has a minimalist approach. Light weight, it has 13.1kg Sabelt monocoque seats and 17-inch light-alloy wheels, resulting in the A110 Pure weighing as little as 1,098kg.

In the passenger compartment, the leather-trimmed seats and matt carbon fibre casing emphasise the car’s sporty character. The A110 Pure has a driving mode selector with three options: Normal, Sport and Race.

It is also equipped with air-conditioning, a satellite navigation system, Alpine smartphone replication mySPIN and front and rear LED lighting. Optional features include high-performance Brembo brakes, active sport exhaust system and 18-inch alloy wheels with two different designs. Finally, it is possible to select luxury 6-way adjustable seats – providing good support for both driver and passenger but still light weight – two different Focal audio systems and front and rear park assist with parking camera.

Displaying the character of a GT, the A110 Légende is the more sophisticated and refined edition of the A110. Its distinguishing features include six-way adjustable seats in black or brown leather and a Focal audio system.

The high-gloss carbon fibre passenger compartment and the 18-inch alloy wheels emphasise the sophisticated personality of the Légende edition. Park assist with rear parking camera makes the A110. Two other 18-inch wheel rims are available to choose from as an optional extra. Like the A110 Pure, the A110 Légende has three driving modes, air-conditioning, a satellite navigation system, the Alpine smartphone replication mySPIN and front and rear LED lighting.

The A110 Légende standard features can be upgraded with a Focal Premium audio system complementing the two speakers and two subwoofer tweeters, an active sport exhaust system and heated seats. A110 Légende is available to order now, priced from £50,805 OTR.

The new editions are available in three new body colours: Blanc Irisé (Iridescent white), Blue Abysse (Abyss Blue), Gris Tonnerre (Thunder Grey). The pallet completes the Blue Alpine (Alpine Blue) and Noir Profond (Deep Black) already offered on the Première Edition. All editions of the A110 have a 3-year/60,000 mile manufacturer’s warranty, which can be extended to four or five years. Maintenance packages and a financing solution are also available as from the summer.

June 2019

Alpine unveiled A110S from 66,500 Euros. Sitting above the A110 Pure and A110 Légende, the A110S is a lightweight coupe characterised by high engine power, a focused chassis setup and refined design elements.

The A110S delivers 292Ps and weighs 1114kg. Costing €66,500* before options, the A110S is available to reserve immediately with first deliveries before the end of 2019.

August 2019

Alpine revealed UK pricing for the A110S. Featuring more power, bespoke suspension settings and upgraded brakes, the A110S offers an even more intense driving experience than the Pure and Legende. Available to reserve on 9th August and order from 3 September, the A110S is priced from £56,810.

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 available over a wider rev band. There’s also the inclusion of an active sports exhaust that emits a more emotive engine sound depending on the selected driver mode.

To harness this increase in performance the Alpine high performance braking system is fitted as standard. This 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.

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.
