Alpine Teases Hotter A110 Once Again Before Le Mans Debut

It looks like the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato Continuation won’t be the only new car to debut at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Alpine also has something in store for the event which served as a venue for the launch of the first production car since the revival of the brand — the A110 in 2017.

Two years have passed since then and the Renault-owned brand finally decided to bring a new version of the A110 to market. While the name and the content of this new A110 version are unknown, the general consensus is Alpine will bring a faster, more powerful, and more expensive iteration of the mid-engined sports coupe to market.

While a few days ago Alpine teased the new sports car by showing us the box in which it was transported to Le Mans, this time we get to see bits of the actual car. The three photos posted by Alpine on its Facebook page reveal details of the interior where changes have occurred compared to the regular A110.

We get to see some orange stitching on the black leather/Alcantara seats and leather door handle and armrests, as well as orange accents on a three-part door insert that also features carbon fiber. Another photo shows a dark Alpine logo on a grey fabric surface.

According to reports from French media, the new version could be named A110 S and combine a slight power gain with an even lower curb weight courtesy of a carbon pack. Given that the Alpine A110 shares the 1.8-liter turbocharged engine with the Megane RS, it’s not hard to imagine a version of the A110 with 300 PS (296 hp) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. After all, that’s exactly what the Megane RS Trophy makes.

Those would represent welcome gains over the standard A110’s 252 PS (248 hp) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque, turning the mid-engined sports car into an even sharper track tool.
