Alpine A110 Première Edition

SHARE

After a year of teasing us Alpine have finally revealed details of their new A110.

They promised a lightweight two seat couple with handling to match the looks and it sounds as if they have delivered.

At 1080kg (excluding options) and with 44% front/ 56% rear weight distribution with a low centre of gravity all it needs is the right amount of power….That power comes from a new 1.8-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine developed by the Renault-Nissan and produces 252hp and maximum torque of 320Nm.

That power to weight ratio (233hp:tonne) means the A110 will manage 0 – 62 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed limited to 155.

Sending drive to the rear wheels is a Getrag 7-speed wet-clutch DCT gearbox. I’m sure a few people are disappointed at the lack of a manual gearbox option.

The Première Edition (launch edition) will be around 58,500 Euros TTC (VAT included) in France with orders starting in summer 2017. Hopefully the base spec will be a little cheaper whereas the Premiere includes:

  • Alpine Blue, Noir Profond (black) or Blanc Solaire (white) paint
  • 18-inch Otto Fuchs forged aluminium wheels, with matt black diamond turned finish specific to Première Edition
  • Three driver modes with ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ settings
  • Performance braking system with dual-material brake discs with aluminium hub and rear calipers incorporating integrated parking brake
  • Lightweight active sports exhaust
  • Alpine-tuned Focal audio system
  • Matte carbon fibre interior accents
  • Brushed aluminium pedals
  • Quilted smooth natural-grain leather Sabelt one-piece sports seats
  • ‘Tricolore’ blue, white and red badging inside and outside
  • …and a numbered ‘Première Edition’ plaque on the centre console.

Deliveries of right hand drive cars won’t start until 2018.
