With the A110, Alpine rekindled its rich heritage of building agile, lightweight sports cars totally in their element on winding mountain roads. The company is well known for competing at the highest level of international motorsport (see History of Alpine box, right). It’s in that same spirit that Alpine today competes in international endurance racing: its title-winning FIA LMP2 World Endurance Championship programme showcases the brand’s ambition and further commitment to motorsport.
The price tag for the basic A110S comes in at around £56,000. It’s an exciting car, one of the best, and feels like a compact McLaren. This particular Alpine will blaze a trail that others will try to follow and that we’ll still be talking about in another 50 years. I don’t remember the originals my Dad’s generation would have known and admired, but this one’s just such a stunning addition to the line.
I hadn’t thought it possible to improve on perfection, but I was wrong, I admit it. The magic hasn’t been blurred at all, it’s just come into sharper focus. The legend well and truly lives on.essence infowww.alpinecars.com
