The new Alpine A110 S presented at the Tokyo Motor Show. The novelty has special exterior colors, a set of 18-inch wheels and an exclusive trim, as well as a contrasting carbon roof. Inside, standard Alcantara-trimmed sports seats are installed, which can be replaced with carbon-coated sports buckets.

The list of equipment for the model model included a set of driver assistants, including cruise control and tire pressure monitoring. For an additional fee, you can order a rear view camera. The new A110 S, according to the company, is a real “sports car” with a “completely different character” compared to existing versions of a two-seater.

The movement is driven by a redesigned 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 288 hp. and 236 lb-ft of torque. Together with the unit, a seven-speed automatic transmission from the standard Alpine works. From zero to hundreds, the model accelerates in 4.4 seconds, and the maximum speed is 260 km / h.

 The A110 S has the same aluminum body, but a different chassis configuration with stiffer suspension. The ride height was reduced by 4 mm to increase stability. To increase the mechanical grip, new wheels and special Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires (215 mm in front, 245 mm in back) have appeared. Brembo brake calipers with 320 mm bimetallic discs are standard and the electronic stability control system has been redesigned.

In general, the changes slightly increased the weight of the car – from 1103 kg to 1114 kg. Jean-Pascal Douce, an Alpine engineer, stated that all changes were designed with a focus on “high-speed stability and machining accuracy”. But he added that it would remain “an everyday usable machine.”

Along with mechanical changes, the A110 S has a number of custom-made exterior elements, including carbon fiber and orange rear-pillar parts, orange brake calipers and a new wheel design. Inside, the novelty received a new finish and contrasting stitching, a leather steering wheel and aluminum pedals.
