New Alpine A110 R Le Mans design
The new Alpine A110 R Le Mans is based on the standard A110 R, so a lot of design details are carried over from that car.
You get the same carbon bonnet with additional vents over the standard A110, along with a carbon fibre roof and wheels to help keep the weight down. The white and blue livery is also exclusive to this car, and there are some 24-hour emblems on the side skirts.
At the rear there’s a carbon wing with more blue accents, as well as large centre-mounted dual tailpipes. The rear window has been replaced with carbon fibre, not great for visibility but it keeps the weight down. There’s a shark fin in the centre for added stability.
New Alpine A110 R Le Mans suspension and chassis
The A110 R is the lightest version of the French sports car, coming in at 1,082kg. That’s 21kg lighter than the standard A110.
This is thanks to the abundance of carbon fibre on the roof, wheels and seats, and the Le Mans special edition weighs exactly that same as the standard A110 R. It has been made both lower and stiffer than that car though thanks to some tweaked suspension, making it feel more engaging on a track.
New Alpine A110 R Le Mans engine and performance
You get the same 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the Alpine A110 R Le Mans as you get in the standard car. It has 300hp, just like the A110 S, however it’s slightly quicker from 0-60mph than that car thanks to its lower weight. It completes the sprint in 3.9 seconds.
