The Alpine A110 is finally coming to America. Alpine announced plans to field a specially modified A110 sports car at Pikes Peak in June. That means you can't buy one, but you will be able to see one.
The French sports car maker calls the A110 in question "the most extreme A110 to date." It's a road-going version that's been converted into a race car eligible to compete in the Time Attack 1 category. There's a funky split wing out back and an absolutely massive splitter mounted to the front bumper. Alpine says the side skirts and diffuser were lifted straight from the hardcore A110R, while the weight has been brought down to a scant 2095 pounds.
Alpine held its first test of the Pikes Peak A110 at the Lurcy-Lévis circuit in France, with plans to let 2022 FIA R-GT Cup winner Raphaël Astier behind the wheel for the first time this week. Astier took that title behind the wheel of an Alpine A110 rally car.
Alpine chief designer Raphaël Linari said that the Pikes Peak car was completed in a decidedly short timeframe, but did not give specifics.
The first two testing days went really smoothly," project manager François Letort said in a statement. "The Alpine A110 Pikes Peak met all its initial targets, which is a remarkable feat in such a short time. We are thus proud to unveil a spectacular model, both visually and in terms of its performance."
