Can the Alpine A110 match up to the iconic cars that came before it? heads to France to get behind the wheel…
In a time of oversimplification and car-makers vying for t he market share in SUVS or crossovers, one brand is here to combine heritage and technology in the perfect sportscar package. The Alpine A110 Berlinette might not have been sold in the UK for long, but its reputation for rallying back in the 1960s and 1970s precedes it. Therefore, creating a brandnew edition is a dangerous game to play – but the risk has proved worth taking.
The A110 has been designed from the ground up by a small team based in France. There are some clear transfers of design from the original model, such as the bonnet spine, twin auxiliary lamps and design sculpted into the door. Everything has been dialled up to 11 though, and a sense of modern style complements every retro hint.
