Alpine presented the A110 GT4 at Geneva Motor Show 2018 – the ultimate expression of the A110. Developed by Alpine’s motorsport partner Signatech, the new GT4 racer is the ultimate expression of the A110’s remarkable agility and track-bred performance. Alongside the A110 Cup it becomes the second racing version of the A110. With increased engine power and aerodynamic downforce compared to the A110 Cup, the A110 GT4 will see Alpine return to competition on the racetrack against the world’s most prestigious car makers.
A small number of A110 GT4s will race throughout Europe during the second half of 2018 before the car goes into full-scale production ahead of the 2019 season. All A110 GT4s will be campaigned by customer teams with factory support from Signatech.
Equipped with air conditioning, the A110 GT4 retains the road car’s 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, albeit with significant power upgrades.
Uniquely, Signatech will offer A110 Cup customers the opportunity to upgrade their cars to GT4 specification using a package of components, enabling them to compete in the Alpine Cup one season and progress to the GT4 category the following year, all with the same car.
Being based on the A110 road car, the GT4 racer benefits from that model’s inherent qualities. Its compact size and lightweight construction are key virtues for circuit racing, as is the mid-engined layout and optimal weight distribution. With very light tyre use and a power-to-weight ratio of 312bhp/tonne – the very limit permitted by GT4 regulations – the A110 is particularly well suited to the GT4 category.
Eligible for the SRO European GT4 Series, the international Creventic 24 Hour series and many one-off races such as the Spa 24 Hours, the A110 GT4 will be seen competing around the globe at many of the world’s most famous circuits.
With the launch of the A110 GT4, Alpine’s ladder of progression takes another step. Driving enthusiasts can begin by enjoying their A110s on the road before heading out on circuit during Alpine’s official trackdays. From there, they can begin competing against like-minded enthusiasts in the Alpine Cup before eventually progressing to the top rung of the ladder in the A110 GT4.
