Prices have been revealed for the more powerful, performance-focused version of the Alpine A110, which goes on sale in September.

The higher-performance Alpine A110S was announced earlier in the summer, and UK pricing and specifications have now been confirmed. The regular Alpine A110 model remains one of the highest-rated cars on sale according to The Car Expert’s unique Expert Rating system, which tracks new car reviews from 15 of the top UK motoring sites to provide aggregated rankings.

The A110S will cost from £56,810, which is £9,905 more than the cheapest version of the standard two-seat sports car. The principal difference is a 40hp power boost for the turbocharged 1.8-litre engine, taking it to 292hp.

Torque of the engine remains at 320Nm, but the peak figure is now usable over a wider rev band, and the engine note has been enhanced by the fitting of an active sports exhaust.

Other changes to the Alpine A110S include upgraded brakes. The high-performance braking system, optional on other A110 variants, is standard on this car and uses 320mm bi-material discs and Brembo calipers.

The 18-inch alloy wheels are also now shod in wider 215/40 R18 front and 245/40 R18 rear Michelin Pilot 4 tyres, which Alpine says are specifically matched to the car.

A suspension overhaul includes a 4mm drop in the ride height, springs stiffened by 50%, and new hollow anti-roll bars fitted with a 100% stiffness increase. The electronic stability control has also been adapted to account for the improved grip these upgrades provide.

Alpine A110S buyers will have a range of bespoke options to tempt them, including a £2,208 carbon-fibre roof panel that shaves 1.9kg from the 1,114kg kerb weight, or carbon-fibre-backed versions of the standard Sabelt bucket seats for £1,656.

A Thunder Grey matt paint finish debuts with the A110S at a cost of £4,440 and is also available on A110 Pure and Legende models.

Order books for the Alpine A110S will open on 3rd September.
