Alpine A110 Rally revealed with over 300bhp 

The Alpine A110 Rally sits alongside the track-only Cup and GT4 variants in the brand’s two-seater lineup 

Since the dawn of the new Alpine A110, we’ve already seen the addition of two track-only variants to the range; the Cup and GT4. Now, bringing the model back to the rally stage for the first time since 1973, the French brand has decided to add one more special variant to the list, the Alpine A110 Rally. 

Sharing the same road car-derived lightweight aluminium chassis as the GT4 and Cup, the Rally model has been developed in conjunction with Signatech to bring the A110 back to rallying for privateer teams and drivers.

Though it does share some parts with its track-only siblings, the Rally features plenty of new components to help it cope with the demands of the rally stage. Most important of all is suspension, and so three-way hydraulic units are fitted as standard alongside new Brembo brakes, a 6spd sequential gearbox, limited-slip differential and FIA-approved safety features such as a roll cage, Sabelt bucket seats and six-point harnesses. Under the skin is the same 1.8-litre turbocharged 4cyl you’ll find in the road car, but it does see alterations to both power delivery and peak power, pushing the maximum output to over 300bhp.

Régis Fricotté, Alpine Commercial and Competition Director said: “This return to rallying is highly anticipated as Alpine made history when it won the first-ever World Rally Championship in 1973. To ensure the success of this new adventure, we have entrusted the research and development, production and commercialization of the Alpine A110 Rally to Signatech, our partner as well in the FIA World Endurance Championship and around the Cup and GT4 programmes.”

The model has undergone its shakedown at the Lurcy-Lévis circuit in France, with Rally Champion Emmanuel Guigou and Junior Champion Laurent Pellier at the helm. The plan is to attain FIA R-GT homologation ahead of first deliveries early in 2020. 

As for pricing, you’ll need to fork out from around €150,000 (approx. £135,000) subject to homologation, and can place your order at the end of the year. If you’d like to see the car in the metal, it’ll be on display during the Rallye Mont-Blanc in Morzine this weekend.
