Alpine has rolled out a slightly affordable version of its A110 R sports car. The new variant is called the A110 R Turini, and here’s why it costs less.
Unlike the A110 R, which comes with lightweight carbon fibre wheels, the A110 R Turini gets conventional 18-wheel alloys. That being said, it retains the carbon bonnet, engine cover, front blade, rear wing and diffuser of the A110 R.
The 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine hasn’t changed either. It produces 300 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque, and drives the wheels, via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
In France, the Alpine A110 R Turini is priced at €106,000, which is €6,000 less than the A110 R, which costs €112,000. However, there will soon be an even more expensive version of the A110 R. Alpine is working on a more track-focused version, that has already been spotted testing at the Nurburgring.
