we were months waiting for him and today, finally, we see the full all the details of the Alpine A110 and we know their benefits, you can see here, are heart-stopping. The Alpine A110 has seen the light, for the first time, in this 87 edition of the Geneva motor show. During all this time many have been the rumors and about this French sports, but we finally have its official data.
original model was born in the decade of the 60’s, quickly becoming cult object for many passionate of motorsport. The French firm has attempted to maintain many similar traits with that first A110, and it is certain that it saved many aesthetic details in common. Its main rival is the Porsche 718 Cayman, by power, by dimensions and by concept vehicle.
The Alpine A110 has a exterior dimensions, tight. Measures to 4.18 meters long, 1.80 wide and just 1.25 meters tall. With these dimensions it is easy to see that your favorite place will be the twisty roads and mountain passes mousers. The engineers have achieved a very low centre of gravity and a cast weights of 44 % front and 56% in the rear. Studied so are all the sections related to the dynamics of the fuel tank has been located in the front, but behind the front axle.
During all these months we wondered why the engine would use this two-seater gaul. Today we have known that this is a propeller 1.8 liter four-cylinder overfeeding. The engineers of Alpine and Renault Sport have worked to develop a mechanical specific thanks to specific elements such as the air intake, the turbo, the exhaust or the ecu.
Located between the two seats and the rear axle, this propellant yields a power of 252 HP and a torque of 320 Nm. If to this we add a weight of 1.080 kilos, the fun is guaranteed. The weight-to-power 4.3 kg/HP, and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,5 seconds. The transmission handles a gearbox DCT 7-speed with a wet clutch, that can be managed in a sequential way using the cams that are behind the wheel.
The Alpine A110 can be set with three driving modes, which are Normal, Sport and Track. These modify the response of engine and gearbox, stability control, and management sound of exhaust. Will also vary the information displayed in the dashboard screen digital TFT 10 inches depending on the selected mode.
The developers of this model have worked to achieve maximum lightness, using lightweight materials such as aluminium for the chassis, monocoque, but also in the aerodynamics. Proof of this are the flat bottom and the diffuser functional that should be glued to the floor like a limpet. Cx is 0.32, and the entire set enables you to achieve a maximum speed of 250 km/h. Is of admire the aerodynamic work, as do without a back spoiler in a vehicle of these characteristics means two things: that the designers care little about the lives of the customers or they can do without it for the silhouette and the background plane. In this case, it should be the second option.
Some of the external manufacturers that have provided components and techniques to the Alpine A110 are Brembo, with brake calipers fully aluminum, Otto Fuchs with wheels of 18 inches, very light, and Sabelt, with the development of the chassis monocoque aluminum that only weighs in at 13.1 kilos.
The Alpine A110 will hit the market in 2018. The rates for the Alpine A110 Première Édition, of which there are no units available with steering wheel to the left, have been established in 58.500 euros in the French market, including taxes. Remember that this car has been developed and will be produced in France.
