2020 Alpine A110S unveiled

Alpine has unveiled its new range-topping A110S, with a minor power bump and a smattering of exterior changes over the standard mid-engined sports car. For the A110S, the standard car's mid-mounted 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine has been retuned to deliver 215kW of power at 6400rpm, and 320Nm of torque between 2000 and 6400rpm. The increase of 30kW is thanks to increased boost pressure. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

2020 Alpine A110 GT4 spied

What appears to be a road-going version of the Alpine A110 GT4 has been snapped during testing, but exactly what role it'll fill in the range remains to be seen. Our spy photography agency snagged these pictures at the same time as the Renault Megane RS Trophy-R, suggesting the GT4 (or whatever Alpine plans to call it) could share some componentry with the new Nordschleife hot-hatch hero.
