Litchfield Stage 2 Alpine A110 Levels Up To 320 PS

It’s been ages since Alpine launched the A110, and so far, the Superleggera with 300 PS or thereabouts is nowhere to be seen. On the other hand, tuners like Waldow Performance took the Energy TCe 1.8-liter turbocharged engine to 300 PS, matching the output of the Renault Megane RS.

But then there’s Litchfield Motors from the United Kingdom, which is much obliged to offer the Stage 2 upgrade at a price that will be announced later on. As opposed to the Stage 1 (£1,194.00 including VAT), the list of modifications goes beyond an ECU-reflash.

In order to squeeze out 320 PS (315 horsepower), the Brits swapped the exhaust system for an in-house design which features a larger diameter for the pipework and a high-flow catalytic converter. As you can tell from the photo gallery, a decal that reads Litchfieldon the lower half of the car complements the white paintwork.

Torque is most certainly up as well, but all we have so far to report are the 386 Nm (285 pound-feet) of the Stage 1 upgrade. Make no mistake about it; this car is challenging Porsche at its own game. Taking into account the power-to-weight ratio, the Litchfield A110 is much obliged to take on superstars such as the 911 Carrera S.

A performance-oriented suspension and limited-slip differential are also under development, which would unlock even more of the French mid-engine sports car’s potential. On the other hand, we’re still waiting for Alpine to work its magic on the A110, pushing the envelope for the tuners as well in the process.

There’s talk Alpine will launch a badge-engineered SUV from Renault in the nearest of futures, which is an awful prospect when you think about it. Be it the Captur, Kadjar, or Koleos, these crossovers are far from sporty even in their most capable configurations.

There’s also hearsay the newcomer would be called A120 and use the platform from the Mercedes-Benz GLA, which doesn't sound impossible considering the strategic partnership between Renault and the three-pointed star from Stuttgart.
