Range-Topping Alpine A110S To Make UK Debut At Salon Prive

Alpine’s ultimate sports car, the A110S, will make its UK debut at this year’s Salon Privé event, which kicks off next month.

The A110S is marketed as being more driver-focused than the Pure or Legend models, featuring a bespoke chassis with 50% stiffer springs and anti-roll bars that are twice as firm. It also sits closer to the road by 4 mm (0.15 inches), boasts wider tires front and rear, yet remains just as easy to drive as the two previously-mentioned versions.

Visually, the A110S stands out thanks to its signature matte Gris Tonnerre finish, orange and carbon C-pillar flag, and its unique GT Race alloy wheels, which work alongside orange Brembo brake calipers.

Inside, there’s orange stitching instead of the more traditional blue, while black Dinamica upholstery is used for the roof lining, door panels and the Sabelt bucket seats. Other features include the use of carbon fiber, aluminum pedals and footrest, orange 12 o’clock steering wheel marker, plus the optional gloss carbon roof panel, Fuchs alloys, special seat belts and carbon fiber backed versions of the bucket seats.

“Like the original Berlinette of the 60s, the new Alpine A110S is a compact 2-seater sports car – a true exponent of light weight but with all the creature comforts you need to make it a pleasurable as well as exhilarating drive. It’s an exceptionally capable as well as focused sports car that offers an exhilarating driving experience, made all the more entertaining by the upgrades in this latest model. We’re looking forward to welcoming Alpine back to Salon Privé,” said the event’s co-founder, David Bagley.

As for performance, the Alpine A110S is powered by a mid-mounted 4-cylinder 1.8-liter unit, producing 288 HP (292 PS) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque. With the aid of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, the sporty coupe can accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds, before maxing out at 162 mph (260 km/h).

    I adore the design of the A110S Alpine -some will hate this- BUT I think this design is so flexible and this car might ever look good as a 4-door coupe.

    It’s not Alpina but Alpine, please correct the title/article.

    Alpina is German and develops high performance BMW while Alpine is a Renault subsidiary.
