RENAULT ALPINE A110
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.
