New Alpine A110 unlocks 304 hp / 226 kW thanks to RaceChip
A few months ago, Renault has launched the revived Alpine A110. The same-name successor of the mid-engine sports car that used to be produced between 1961 and 1977 hit the showrooms packing a 1.8-liter turbo-four engine rated at 252 hp (188 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. Now, RaceChip is offering an ECU tune for it.
There are actually multiple options to choose from, but it is the range-topping RaceChip GTS Black that is obviously the most interesting to us. Once applied, it persuades the mill to output 304 hp (226 kW) along with 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) at the crank, which should be immediately noticeable given the low weight of the sports car.
RaceChip has other goodies in stock for the Alpine A110, including Eibach springs (-25 mm / -1” ride height), a custom wrap by SchwabenFolia GmbH, 18-inch BBS E88 Motorsport wheels with neutral grey spokes contrasting with polished rims, and the RaceChip XLR module said to improve throttle response.
By the way, Renault has recently debuted a sported-up variant of the A110 with the ‘S’ suffix added. The maximum torque stays the same, but the power goes up to 292 hp (218 kW). On the other hand, we think the RaceChip version is more appealing overall. What do you think?
