The new 2022 Alpine A110

Today, Alpine is unveiling its new A110 range consisting of the A110, the New A110 GT and the New A110 S. All three revised versions of the A110 line-up are characteristically Alpine, and each has its own distinctive character and purpose. In their own way, they treat drivers to three kinds of Alpine experience.

They are as light and agile as any car with an Alpine badge and come with a four-cylinder 1.8-litre turbocharged engine, paired with a Getrag seven-speed automatic gearbox with a dual wet clutch to deliver the iconic Alpine experience.

The entry-level model, the A110 features the Alpine chassis and a 252hp engine offering similar driving characteristics to the original Berlinette – it is light, lively and precise, and delivers an agile and vibrant drive on all roads.

The New Alpine A110 GT is the range’s Grand Tourisme sports coupe. With 300hp and renowned Alpine chassis, it strikes a fine balance between performance and comfort. Versatile and elegant, the A110 GT is a sports car perfectly suited to everyday and long-distance driving, as well as more involved drives on twisty roads.

The New Alpine A110 S sits at the top of the revised range, focused on performance with 300hp and a unique Sports chassis. Optional semi-slick tyres and a new custom-made aerodynamic body kit brings enhanced thrills, precision and enjoyment – especially on track.

The New A110 range starts from £49,905 OTR and is available now to order.

SHARPER ENGINE CALIBRATION
To maximise driving pleasure, each version of the Alpine A110 comes with three driver-selectable modes: Normal, Sport and Track.

Normal mode is geared more towards comfort, while Sport mode is optimised for more dynamic driving and gear shifting – including the capability of shifting gears down and increasing engine revs (for the kind of smart boost you get from double clutching) between shifting up through the transmission.

The throttle and engine response, power steering’s sensitivity, gear-shifting rules, and exhaust valve activation all change according to the mode the driver selects. This also applies to the ESC system, which can also be deactivated at the touch of a button.

The New A110 GT and New A110 S engine’s calibration has been improved to push maximum power to 300hp at higher engine speeds (6,300rpm), add 20Nm (340Nm torque as low as 2,400rpm) and reach the enhanced top speed in seventh gear, while the automatic gearbox is also engineered to boost performance.

Another all-new feature is found when initialising the Launch Control procedure, with one of the cylinders temporarily disabled to produce a more engaging engine note.

NEW INFOTAINMENT AND CONNECTIVITY
Alpine is fitting its new A110 range with a new multimedia system including a seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity and two USB outlets. It is smartphone-inspired, intuitive with customisable widgets, and compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The controls behind the steering wheel activate voice recognition so that you can control your smartphone’s operating system or run Google Online Search for addresses. The onboard navigation system provides a wealth of information in real time, including traffic updates and upcoming service stations including fuel prices.

The Alpine Telematics menu (standard on the New A110 S) includes real-time readings or bar charts displaying key metrics such as turbo pressure, gearbox temperature, torque, power, steering wheel angle and acceleration, while the built-in chronograph keeps track of performance on circuits.

The Alpine multimedia system is available, depending on the version, with a standard audio system, Focal audio system (two speakers + two tweeters) and Focal Premium audio system (two speakers + two tweeters + one subwoofer).

The new Alpine multimedia system is compatible with FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) remote updates. This connectivity ensures the system is always operating in as up-to-date format as possible and will make it possible to add a Wi-Fi connection in the near future.

  • Sport chassis: recalibrated anti-roll bars and springs, purpose-engineered axle geometry, 50 per cent stiffer coil springs, shock absorbers adjusted accordingly, hollow anti-roll bars to minimise weight (and 100 per cent firmer), 4mm lower ride height, hydraulic steering wheel stops for optimal body control
  • Unladen kerb mass: 1,109kg to 1,140kg
  • Exhaust system: Sport
  • Brembo high-performance braking system, 320mm diameter dual material discs at the front and rear, orange callipers Bright black 18-inch GT Race rims
  • Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres (215/40 R18 at the front and 245/40 R18 at the rear)
  • Sabelt Sport adjustable seats in black microfibre and leather with orange overstitching, fitted on two visible rails

The exterior design of the New A110 S provides more than a clue as to its sporty, intensely Alpine driving experience.

Exterior equipment includes chromium black Alpine lettering, bright 18-inch GT Race rims with black detailing, 215/40 R18 front tyres and 245/40 18 rear tyres, and orange brake callipers. Additional S badging completes the added detailing over the rest of the A110 range, while optional carbon aerodynamic body kit details are available, as well as Fire Orange paintwork with contrasting Deep Black roof.

Under the skin, the New A110 S delivers on its visual promise with an uncompromising mechanical specification – 300hp, uprated Sports chassis, brakes and exhaust – to deliver an enthusiastic and exhilarating drive on any road, at any speed.

The New A110 S is also available with optional Michelin PS Cup 2 Connect semi-slick tyres, while the optional Aero Kit pushes the top speed up to 170mph. The kit is comprised of a carbon rear spoiler improving aerodynamic support, a carbon front blade and longer front fairings under the car to step up the efficiency of the rear diffuser and flat floor. With the Aero Kit fitted, the New A110 S can deliver its full potential on track. Its stability at its enhanced top speed comes from the 60kg extra load on the front wheels (from the carbon blade) and 81kg extra load at the back (from the carbon spoiler), adding up to a total of 141kg extra downforce.

The interior comes with top-of-the-range fittings including adjustable Sabelt Sport seats, aluminium Sport pedals, and a microfibre covered interior with orange overstitching if the driver opts for the Microfibre pack and Racing Seats. The orange seatbelts, all-microfibre seat upholstery and fittings to add a harness are unique to the New A110 S.

“The New Alpine A110 S is the first A110 with a rear spoiler. We ran the A110 S through many wind tunnel tests, which showed that it needed substantial aerodynamic support to reach its maximum speed. The Aero Kit is our answer to that challenge. The A110 S peaks at 170mph, has fantastic looks and is set to be a star on the tracks that takes on any race against the clock.”
Antony Villain, Director of Design, Alpine

The entry model to the A110 range has been renamed simply as the A110. Its agility and acceleration are unparalleled thanks to a combination of a lightweight and balanced chassis. Its mass has been optimally spread out – 44 per cent at the front, 56 per cent at the rear with the engine in a central-back position – and it is lighter at 1,102kg unladen. It comes with the Alpine chassis and Sport seats, and its communicative dynamics and efficiency in all circumstances provide uncompromised driving pleasure.
