Alpine Ravage set to enter limited production

The rally-inspired Alpine A110 is going into limited production 

Engineering company Ravage has announced that its heavily modified Group B-inspired take on the road-going Alpine A110 sports car will enter limited production, matching a new livery with a Mirage 2000c fighter jet in celebration.

Before a run of individually specified examples hit the road, Ravage repainted the original Modèle Zéro to match the scheme of a Mirage 2000c fighter jet with the help of aircraft livery designer Regis Rocca. The firm says 'Ravage rhymes with Mirage, the rhyme was too good not to follow through,' and although that’s perhaps a stretch, it’s a spectacular way of marking the collaboration.

Unlike the rally monsters it pays homage to, the Alpine Ravage hasn’t been fitted with a fire breathing, antilag-equipped power unit. Instead, the A110’s Renault Sport 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder produces the same 248bhp and 236lb ft of torque as it does from the factory, enough for a 4.5sec 0-62mph time and 155mph top speed.

The firm has looked into possible powertrain modifications though, suggesting that up to 315bhp and 258lb ft of torque are realistic upgrades – not hard to believe with the A110S and competition-spec A110 Rally with figures not too far off those.

Despite an increase in width and the addition of a number of cosmetic modifications, weight is unchanged thanks to a careful choice of materials. Its redesigned rear arches and bumper section are produced in carbonfibre and aluminium after having gone through a full CAD and clay modelling process.

Also new to the rear is a straight-through exhaust system, exposed beneath the rear bumper just like the Lancia Delta S4 – something that can also be specified in titanium. There’s also a set of bespoke forged three-piece 18-inch wheels inspired by the Gotti wheels found on original Alpine rally cars.

The front has received its own attention, with yellow-tinted headlights, CIBIE long-range LED spotlights bolted either side of the bumper and in its original form, a subtle stripe applied down the centre in the colours of the French flag.

While these visual modifications are unlikely to provide any improvements in performance, the swollen rear arches have allowed the fitment of wider, stickier Michelin Cup 2 tyres (265-section rear, 225-section front) that will improve stability and traction.

Ravage revealed that the project cost its buyer in the region of £100,000. Details on upcoming iterations will be revealed in due course – follow Ravage on Instagram for the latest.
