Like the A108, the A110 featured a steel backbone chassis and a fiberglass body. In North America, also produced a version of the called the Berlinetta, from 1979 to 1986. At the same time it was obvious that the A110 was nearing the limits of its development potential. The height of the Alpine's rally success came in 1973, when factory-backed A110s dominated the season to win the first manufacturer's title in the newly created World Rally Championship series. When the Alpine is stationary, its rear wheels seem to carry an obscene amount of rear camber, but on the road, it all works. An optional display is available for the passenger-side dash and keeps the passenger actively involved in the whole driving experience. In search of a combination of sleek lines and excellent performance, Alpine's engineers turned to the world of race cars and supercars to optimize the aerodynamics of the A110.
The engine note is surprisingly rich for such a small engine, growling rather than rasping, and trying its best to sound larger than it actually is. Thanks to a curb weight of only 950 kg, the Berlinette reached a top speed of 143 mph and ran to 1000 m from a standstill in 26. The adoption of fuel injection brought no performance increase. That basic assembly was bonded to the fiberglass body to create a relatively light, strong, and rigid unit-body structure. Shipping costs and payment fees are recognized before confirming the purchase. But the little bug-eyed rally car made a strong impression on me. The tunnel console is both light and functional.

Inside there's more space than you'd think; it's comfortable with my legs outstretched slightly to the right, and plenty of shoulder room.
Hope to see you fellow gear-heads on the open road!! Weight distribution is ideal too 54% at the rear while the centre of gravity is lower and has been moved rearwards in the chassis. Add some cam, and Phil says it's good for around 125 hp. Dimensions and weight distribution Its wheelbase is also shorter, the engine and driver seat have been lowered and the rear in more compact thanks to the new suspension and gearbox layout. This in turn translates into faster response times and more precise bump control which improves both performance and ride comfort. The Berlinetta model was marketed as having a luxury focus, through interior features and softer suspension.
The power is certainly adequate, though it never quite pushes me back in the seat.

Starting in 1967, the 1470cc Renault R16 engine also used in the Europa found its way into the A110 1500. When it comes to integrating fluid dynamics and thermal management, however, the central air vent on the bonnet boosts the efficiency of the cooling system and also helps lessen the impact of the air on the windscreen at high speeds, creating a cushion that deflects the natural air flow. The rear-engine layout of the A110 Berlinette follows the construction principles proven on the Alpine A108. While the A110's relatively small-displacement engines and short wheelbase weren't ideal for circuit racing, they were perfect for rally racing, where the Alpine's strong chassis and durable mechanicals excelled.
