Another day with Alpine.
I had to bring my Alpine back to the Deauville Center for the annual service. And I ennjoyed it very much, as they gave me the new Alpine A110S I could test drive for the whole day.
So, I could feel the difference between the former A 110S with its 292 HP and 320 Nm torque, and this new one with its 300 HP and 340 Nm torque.
I have to say that I never felt the difference between a Pure or a Legend ( 252 HP ) and the S ( 292 HP ) except that on the S you could go a bit higher in the revs.
With the new S, t is a different song. You really feel the difference in power and torque.
Now, compared to mine ( 302 HP and 380 Nm ), I prefer mine, which is more brutal, shaper. On mine, I achieved to take the " turbo effect " out. It behaves like a big atmospheric engine. On the new S, you feel the Turbo at around 2000 rpm.
I could test it on the small roads, and on the highway. It was a superb experience.
Here are the photos.
Ah, and yes, I made a small but very cool improvement on mine, during the service...
I will elaborate a bit later.
