Alpine unveiled at Geneva the A110. The new mid-engine two-seater Coupe remains faithful to the spirit of older Alpine models. It has an aluminum platform and its chassis offers excellent rigidity, while its weight is very low just at 1,080 kg.
Mechanically it is equipped with a new 4-cylinder 1.8-liter turbo engine, combined with a 7-speed Gertrag dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engine produces 252 hp and 320 Nm of torque, that enable it to complete the 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, with its top speed being electronically limited to 250 km/h.
The A110 has three driving modes, Normal, Sport and Track that intervene in the settings of the engine, transmission, steering, the ESC and the exhaust.
According to the Company, the Alpine A110 is a daily sports coupe, that combines comfort with absolute control. Its interior has a minimalist design, with leather, aluminum and carbon fiber, while its seats are designed by Sabelt and weight only 13.1 kg.
The new Alpine A110 will be launched firstly in the Premiere Edition, which will be built in 1955 units. The 1955 number, refers to the year that Jean Redele created Alpine.
This specific collector’s edition will feature many different characteristics, compared to the simple model and it will cost €58,500 in France.
