The Alpine A110 R is coming on October 4 as the most radical version of the mid-engined sportscar, and surpassing we lay vision on it, the French automaker showed its performance credentials in two short video teasers.

As shown in the videos, the A110 R accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 285 km/h (177 mph). Both of those figures are improved compared to the lesser variants, making it the quickest and fastest A110 yet. Increasingly specifically, in terms of the standard 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint, the A110 R is 0.3 seconds quicker than the GT and the S trims, and 0.6 seconds quicker than the entry-level Pure. Also, the A110 R’s top speed is 35 km/h (22 mph) higher than the A110 GT’s and 25 km/h (16 mph) higher than the A110 S’s.

In both teasers we get to see the horsepower and torque ratings on the digital instrument cluster, showing that the mid-mounted turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine will produce the same 296 hp (221 kW / 300 PS) and 340 Nm (251 lb-ft) as in the A110 GT and A110 S. This ways that the improved performance has to do with the lower weight and the engine/gearbox setup.

In the previous teaser, Alpine revealed that the A110 R will full-length a redesigned bodykit including a splitter, a vented bonnet, extended side sills, a larger diffuser, and a stock-still rear wing. Furthermore, a set of lighter transfuse wheels, upgraded brakes, and retuned suspension will contribute to sharper handling. The latest videos reveal increasingly of the exterior design, showing us the quad frazzle pipes on the diffuser, the aero-style transfuse wheels, the red restriction calipers, and the stat webbing treatment on the version-specific engine cover. Finally, we get to see the undecorous exterior shade which is typical of Alpine’s branding.

The reveal of the Alpine A110 R is just virtually the corner, so stay tuned for increasingly information.
