The A110 is one of the most entertaining and rewarding sports cars you can buy – at any price. Being ultra-lightweight means that, despite its relatively small engine, performance won't disappoint, while at the same time it feels incredibly nimble.

The R Fernando Alonso Edition is almost mechanically identical to the regular R, but has lots of design featured inspired by the Formula One driver. Its elevated price over the R is impossible to justify, but it is at least rare, with only 32 being produced (the number of Alonso’s F1 victories).

The more powerful unit fitted to GT, S and R models comes with 296bhp and 251lb ft of torque. That drops the 0-62mph time to 4.2sec for the GT and S and 3.9sec for the R. Top speed for the GT model is a respectable 155mph, with the S achieving 162mph (an optional Aero Kit on the S raises the top speed to 170mph) and 177mph for the R.
