This delicious piece of forbidden fruit just got sweeter.

If there's one European sports car we wish would come to America, it's the Alpine A110. Launched in 2017, the reborn Alpine A110 looks stunning and is significantly lighter and more agile than a Porsche 718 Cayman or Audi TT. Now, this delicious piece of forbidden fruit has just got sweeter. For the 2022 model year, the Alpine A110 has been updated with improved performance, sharper handling, and new tech to make us more envious.

Three versions of the A110 are available for 2022: the A110, A110 GT, and A110 S. The entry-level model A110 is powered by the same turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 249 horsepower, paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The GT and S variants, on the other hand, are uprated to 295 hp at 6,300 rpm with 250 lb-ft of torque. With more power, the A110 GT and S will sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 171 mph with the limiter removed.

As standard, the entry-level A110 rides on 17-inch rims wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 205/45 R17 tires at the front and 235/45 R17 tires at the rear and is fitted with 11.6-inch diameter Brembo front and rear brakes with Charcoal Black calipers. Inside, all 2022 A110 models are equipped with a new seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, voice recognition, and navigation. Designed for longer journeys, the more comfortable GT comes with leather seats, 18-inch diamond-cut black rims, and a sport exhaust system.

At the top of the range, the track-focused A110 S features recalibrated anti-roll bars and springs, 50% stiffer coil springs, adjusted shock absorbers, and a 4-millimeter lower ride height, as well as high-performance Brembo brakes and 18-inch GT Race rims wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 semi-slicks. For those who want to unleash the car's full potential on the track, an optional aero kit adds a carbon rear wing and a carbon front spoiler.

"2021 is [a] historic year for Alpine: it ventured into Formula 1, won the Grand Prix in Hungary, and pushed ahead with the Endurance program in the top category," said Laurent Rossi, CEO of Alpine. "This is exactly what the new A110 range is all about: it's crisper, pushes performance up a notch, and captures what we are aiming for in the motorsports arena.

In Europe, pricing for the 2022 Alpine A110, A110 GT, and A110 S start at €59,500 ($66,718), €69 500 ($77,922), and €71 500 ($80,165) respectively.
