Alpine’s S version gets more power and custom suspension settings.

Alpine A110S, first unveiled in August, debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show. The flagship model, which went on sale in September, can be presented in five colors, the most expensive of which is matte gray. A new set of 18-inch black alloy wheels is exclusive to the S-version, and a contrasting carbon roof is available as an option.

Inside, standard Alcantara leather sports seats can be replaced with a pair of carbon-coated buckets and custom-made blue stitching mats can be added. Driver assistance tools, such as cruise control and tire pressure monitoring, are standard, and a rear parking camera is available for a fee.

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 top version of the mid-engined Alpine is equipped with a revised version of the 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 288 hp and a 7-speed automatic transmission. With such units, the A110 S can accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds, and its maximum speed is 260 km / h.

The A110 S has the same aluminum body, but has a different chassis configuration, with newer suspension springs with stiffer coils, retuned shock absorbers and stiffer anti-roll bars. The sports car was 4 mm lower and received new wheels and custom-made Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires, as well as Brembo brake calipers as an option.
