It is a car that we follow with more than normal interest. Modern technology and classic lines are coming together less and less often. Alpine has managed to realize that sometimes delicious combination. The new Alpine A110 was unveiled at the Geneva Salon. And this French sportsman with various retro characteristics will also receive a Dutch baptism of fire. In our country the car will be shown for the first time at the Concours d'Elégance Palace Het Loo (1 and 2 July 2017). The new Alpine A110 will be exhibited together with the historical models of the concept from Dieppe.

A year after the presentation of the Alpine Vision concept car, the new A110 was unveiled. Thanks to the combination of typical Alpine properties, such as low weight, maneuverability and performance, the new two-seat mid-engine sports coupe follows in the footsteps of its illustrious predecessors, the A110 'Berlinette' in particular. The new model is produced at the Alpine factory in Dieppe.

Alpines' claim: driving pleasure

Alpine is back and comes with a clear promise: driving pleasure. The A110 has an aluminum chassis and bodywork that are riveted and welded to achieve a rigid lightweight structure. The car is very light: the curb weight of the A110 (excluding options) is only 1.080 kg. The compact size (4.178 mm long, 1.798 mm wide and 1.252 mm high), the optimal weight distribution (44% front, 56% rear) and the low center of gravity are purely focused on maneuverability, especially on winding mountain roads where Alpine models from the sixties and made seventy name and fame.

Tailor made

The A110 is powered by a new and specially developed for this model 1,8-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with a specific intake and exhaust system, a turbo and an adapted engine management system. The power source delivers a power of 185 kW / 252 hp and a maximum torque of 320 Nm. Together with a specially developed Alpine 7-speed DCT transmission from Getrag, it enables A110 to complete a sprint of 0-100 km / h in just 4,5 seconds. In addition, the A11- has an active, lightweight exhaust system with one end.

Old and new

The new A110 combines modern design details, materials and techniques with the efficiency, compact size and silhouette of the original A110 Berlinette, with the curved rear window directly referring to that of historic Alpine models. Inside, the A110 has a minimalist design, with a lightweight design and a comfortable seating position. Top quality materials, full-grain leather upholstery, aluminum and Carbon Fiber contribute to the unique driving experience for rider and passenger.

Design art from the past, contemporary delights

Alpine is back. It is back with a car that combines contemporary delicacies with the design art of the past. He can look forward to considerable interest, because the Première Edition is already sold out. More trim levels will be launched in 2018.
