  • Inspired by the original A110 Berlinette (1969), the A110 forms a link between the brand’s heritage and its future. The design team were given complete freedom to imagine what a modern day Alpine should look like and set out to capture the spirit of Alpine in the new car while also creating a design language that would stand the test of time. A technical concept was developed – one of lightweight construction and absolute driving pleasure – that would make the new car stand out in the sports car segment, do justice to the original models, while also demonstrating ambition and modernity

  • A weight target was set for the car of 1100kg, which makes the A110 one of the lightest cars in its class. The aluminium chassis and bodywork are bonded and riveted to reduce weight with the compact aluminium body offering the best possible balance between rigidity, weight and build quality. Unlike most cars in the premium sports car segment the A110 owes its agility to the all-round double wishbone suspension layout. With a flat underbody and functional rear diffuser, the car’s carefully crafted aerodynamics eliminate the need for a rear spoiler. This preserves the A110’s elegant, timeless silhouette.

  • More than half of the A110 Australian Premiere Editions were sold before the brand was officially launched in Australia.

  • • Lightweight aluminium construction • Double wishbone suspension • Linear suspension kinematics • Mid-mounted 252PS (248bhp) turbocharged engine • Lightweight Sabelt sports seats that weigh just 13.1kg each • Brembo brakes that incorporate the parking brake into the main rear caliper, a world first application • Optional active central exit sports exhaust • Three driving modes are Normal, Sport and Track • The 10-inch digital TFT display within the instrument binnacle also changes with each driving mode, favouring the rev counter, gear display and gear shift lights in Sport and Track • Compact dimensions and relatively narrow tyres mean the A110 generates minimal drag which improves both acceleration at higher speeds and fuel efficiency • The windscreen washer liquid is sprayed, via the wiper blade itself directly onto the screen, which provides a better cleaning result with less liquid being used • Leather-trimmed seats and matt carbon fibre casing emphasise the car’s sporty character
