Alpine Says Something's 'Coming Soon', Is It The Track-Focused A110?

According to a series of teasers posted on social media by Alpine, the A110 GT4 (name unconfirmed), will be "coming soon", from "Dieppe to Le Mans" (June 15-16), and we should "stay tuned" in the meantime.



The two images and a GIF-like video reveal a container with the company’s logo on the doors and the silhouette of the A110 on one side, therefore it’s thought to be a preview of the upcoming track-focused model.

Our spy photographers have already immortalized it, when they caught a prototype on camera wearing a special livery inspired by the race car and the 'A110 GT4’ lettering on the roof, hence the rumored name. Elsewhere, the scooped vehicle featured a different hood and smaller front splitter, along with a compact rear wing.

Expected to be more aerodynamic compared to the outgoing French sports car, it’s probably based on the Cup version, adding a few other adjustments. The biggest change, however, will be the added power, with the 1.8-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine expected to kick out 300 PS (296 hp / 221 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, like the mill powering the Renault Megane RS Trophy and Trophy-R. That would make it 48 PS (47 hp / 35 kW) and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft) of torque more powerful than the regular A110.

Combined with possible weight saving measures, the A110 GT4 will become more agile, too. We cannot put our finger on the exact numbers yet, but expect improvements over the 4.5 seconds needed for the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration and 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed.
