Road-Going Alpine A110 GT4 Spied, Could Get As Much As 296 HP

Alpine introduced the track-only A110 GT4 at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, and it appears it is now working on a road-going variant.

Caught wearing a livery inspired by the race car, the prototype is noticeably less aggressive as it eschews the ventilated carbon fiber hood and adopts a smaller front splitter. The model has also been equipped with a compact rear wing that features orange “A110 GT4” lettering on the top.

Little else is known about the car, but it’s apparently street-legal as it has been spotted on public roads around the Nürburgring. If this is the case, Alpine could be taking a page out from the Porsche playbook, who is developing a road-going 718 Cayman GT4 inspired by their 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

The hardcore A110 is expected to be loosely based on the A110 Cup that comes with a track-tuned suspension with adjustable Öhlins shock absorbers and a 40mm (1.6 inch) reduced ride height, a roll cage and a magnesium Brembo braking system.

Power is provided by a mid-mounted, turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder that has been outfitted with a racing exhaust and a high-flow air filter. These changes enable the mill to produce 266 hp (199 kW / 270 PS) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque. The engine is paired to a six-speed sequential transmission which sends power to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential.

Rumors suggest the road-going A110 GT4 could be even more powerful as reports have indicated the model could have around, getting as much qs 296 hp (221 kW / 300 PS). That remains unconfirmed, but we will find out soon enough as the coupe could be introduced at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which kicks off on July 4th.

      You do realise that because it only weighs 1,110kg, the 250bhp standard version Is faster than a 718 Cayman S… nobody complained it lacked performance.

        True . And the big question is what is this going to cost. Most of the people are already complaining that the 250 bhp version costs too much !
