2020 Alpine A110 SportsX

An Alpine A110 that can go off-road? Well, maybe just a little

Alpine has decided to partake in a fun design exercise that blends the the modern-day Alpine A110 with inspiration derived from the A110 SportsX that won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1973. . The idea is to showcase the potential for customization offered by the current A110, and showcase that it does. Alpine started by making the A110 80 mm wider and followed up by raising the suspension by 60 mm to make it more off-road friendly.

As far as we can tell, the modern-day Alpine A110 SportsX is powered by the same engine as the standard A100, which means there’s a 1.8-liter four-cylinder in place to do the dirty work. Power output should be pegged at 252 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. This design study, if it was slated for production wouldn’t be quite so fast to 60 mph (4.5 seconds) but it would be more of a go-anywhere type of vehicle so it might be a fair trade-off.

We’ve organized a nice gallery of the Alpine A110 SportsX in the slider above and the page below. Go ahead and browse through and let us know what you think.
