A110 Special Edition

On the occasion of the celebrations for its 100th anniversary, Alpine this year presents a special edition based on the existing Alpine A110. For the uninitiated, the Alpine A110 is a mid-engined sports car offered in Europe and designed to directly challenge Porsche Cayman; a few days ago we had the opportunity to try the most powerful model on the market and if you want to know more, our test is available here. The new edition is inspired by the GT model, a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine capable of delivering 300 horsepower and up to 340 Nm of torque is expected. The drive is rear, while the dual-clutch automatic transmission is seven-speed. In terms of performance, the 0-100 km / h acceleration is 4.2 seconds while the top speed stops at 250 km / h.

Only 100 examples will be built and Alpine claims that the model features a color that the founder of Alpine was quite fond of: Montbello Gray. There are also 18 ″ alloy wheels with "Grand Prix" design combined with silver colored brake calipers. Each car will then be fitted with a black leather interior with gray contrast stitching almost everywhere. The driving comfort is the same as the GT specification, therefore a multimedia system with 7 "touch screen, compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and three driving modes to change the character of the car are included.

Alpine unveiled the special edition, known as GT J. Rédélé, at an event in its hometown of Dieppe, France, where over 1,000 Alpine models gathered to commemorate Redele's 100th birthday. One of the A110 J. Redele cars led the parade through the small French commune. Pre-orderable for a few days, the special edition is available starting from 83 thousand, a price that places it halfway between a Porsche Cayman S and a Cayman GTS 4.0.
