2018 Alpine A110 Cup

The new A110 Cup features the same beautiful lines of the regular A110, but spiced up with a some racing seasoning. The recipe includes a contrast-colored roof, snazzy stripes along the sides, a tidy little spoiler on the tail, and a ride height that's about 1.5 inches lower. The headlights are covered. 

Mechanically there are multiple improvements, but none that would make the car wildly different from the road-going model. The standard 248-horsepower turbo four-cylinder benefits from intake and exhaust modifications for a boost of 18 hp to 266 total. It's bolted up to a six-speed sequential manual transmission. The chassis features joint-welded subframes, revised rear upper wishbone mounting points, and a roll cage. Losing most of the interior niceties also lowers the weight of the car by about 117 pounds from 2,432 pounds to 2,315. The lighter car sits on compression- and rebound-adjustable Ohlins shocks. Brakes are bigger and feature six-piston magnesium Brembo brake calipers all around.

The Alpine A110 Cup is a legitimate race car. Besides being co-developed with Alpine's World Endurance Championship car builder, Signatech, it will be eligible to race in the new Alpine Europa Cup race series which is sanctioned by the FIA. (
