  • 2021 Alpine A110 pricing and specification
  • French sports car gains new A110S variant
  • More power, orange highlights and black wheels lead additions
  • Priced from $101,000 (A110 Pure) to $115,000 (A110S) before on-road costs

The 2021 Alpine A110 sports car range has been expanded with the addition of a new, high-performance A110S variant.

Priced from $115,000 before on-road costs, the A110S attracts a premium over Alpine’s $106,500 before on-road costs A110 Légende and $101,000 before on-road costs A110 Pure – but packs in more power, a stiffer chassis and additional standard equipment to justify its price hike.

Headlining the upgrades over the ‘standard’ A110 is a retuned powertrain, with the familiar 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder uprated through increased boost pressure to develop 215kW and 320Nm – up 30kW over the standard car.

Drive continues to be sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, enabling a 4.4-second 0-100km/h sprint time – one-tenth of a second quicker than the standard car – towards a top speed of 260km/h.

Upgrades over lesser A110 models include unique 18-inch ‘GT Race’ black alloy wheels with 215/40 front and 245/40 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres, 4mm-lower ‘sports chassis’, 50 per cent stiffer springs, stiffer anti-roll bars, “high-performance” 320mm Brembo brakes with orange calipers, a standard-fit sports exhaust, and black badging.

Inside, the A110S gains leather and Dinamica suede upholstery for the Sabelt bucket seats, black leather and Dinamica interior trim, matte carbon-fibre inlays (versus the Legende’s gloss carbon), orange contrast stitching, Dinamica suede headlining and sun visors, aluminium driver and passenger footrests, and unique carbon and orange badging.

Available options include a $2190 Focal premium sound system, the $690 Mirrors package (which adds an electrochromatic rear-view mirror, and power-folding side mirrors), $690 Storage package, $3580 18-inch grey Fuchs wheels, a $3590 gloss carbon-fibre roof (which saves 1.9kg), and different brake caliper colours ($590).

A110S buyers can select from no-cost Glacier White paint, $1490 Thunder Grey, Deep Black and Blue Abyss premium finishes, $3290 Alpine Blue and Iridescent White prestige hues, or $7890 Thunder Grey matte paint.

The wider A110 Pure (below) and Légende range continues into 2021 unchanged – full pricing and specification lists can be found towards the bottom of this story.

These variants feature 185kW/320Nm versions of the 1.8-litre turbo four-cylinder, paired to seven-speed dual-clutch gearboxes for 4.5-second 0-100km/h sprint times.

Alpine has reported five vehicles as sold year-to-date in 2021 – with the A110 its only model, until the arrival of its electric range before 2025 – joining seven vehicles sold throughout 2020.

The 2021 Alpine A110 range – including the flagship A110S – is available to order now.
