RE­NAULT ALPINE A110

Top Gear (UK) - - RETRO FEVER -

What is it?

Our 2018 Speed Week cham­pion, hur­rah! But for­get that it’s a car with “won­der­ful poise and bal­ance, a deft touch and a loose, lim­ber en­ergy” for one minute, and let’s fo­cus on that de­sign. Specif­i­cally the quad head­lights, bon­net sculpt­ing, soft curve of the rear screen and pert rear end. An unashamed tribute to the Six­ties orig­i­nal, yes, but one that stands up and then some as a piece of mod­ern sports car de­sign, too. So good they slapped the old name on it.

Can I buy one?

Oui. All 1,955 Premier edi­tions sold out in five days, but there’s more. Choose be­tween Leg­ende (mod­icum of com­fort) or Pure (sod com­fort, let’s race) trim lev­els.
