Alpine A110S Proves An Impressive Track Tool At The Nurburgring


If you were planning on taking a snack break, then you have come to the right place, because you might want to consider spending the next 8+ minutes watching the Alpine A110S being driven hard on the Nurburgring.

The A110S can handle not only corners, but long straights as well, with the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration taking 4.4 seconds, or almost one second quicker than the Porsche 718 Cayman T. It will run out of breath at 162 mph (260 km/h), 9 mph (14 km/h) less than its German rival which is 8 HP (8 PS / 6 kW) and 44 lb-ft (60 Nm) of torque more powerful.

Speaking of power, the A110S has 288 HP (292 PS / 215 kW) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) produced by the 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder shared with the rest of the A110 lineup and with the latest Renault Megane RS models, connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Compared to the Pure and Legende variants, the S is a bit more powerful and features uprated brakes, revised suspension, recalibrated Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and wider tires.

UK pricing for the A110S starts at £56,810 (equal to $77,449), or £4,750 ($6,476) more than the 718 Cayman T.
