Renault's Awesome Alpine A110 Sports Car Now Has a High-Performance Variant

Alpine's enticing mid-engined sports car، the A110، is getting a new higher-performance variant called the A110S. With extra power، an upgraded chassis setup، and a few visual tweaks، the A110S makes us even more sad that this joyful thing will never reach U.S. shores—especially now that FCA and Renault's potential tie-up is apparently on the rocks، as the Car News said.

There's an extra 39 horsepower in store for the Alpine's turbocharged 1.8-liter inline-four، which now makes 288 hp thanks to a bit of extra boost from the turbocharger. Torque stays the same at 236 lb-ft but is available throughout a broader part of the rev range. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic remains the only transmission option. It remains quite lightweight، with Alpine claiming a curb weight of 2456 pounds، or nearly 700 lbs less than a Porsche 718 Cayman S.
Chassis tuning changes for the A110S include stiffer springs and anti-roll bars and an 0.2-inch-lower ride height. Slightly wider Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires and different wheels are included، too. The A110S will offer an optional carbon-fiber roof، which reduces the overall weight by four pounds.
