Alpine A110 Hits Geneva With Pure, Legende And GT4 Versions

Renault’s reborn Alpine brand has been getting rave reviews for its new A110 and now, as promised, it’s revealed new versions of its coupe at the Geneva Motor Show.

Following the success of the sold-out Premiere Edition, the A110 will now be offered in Pure and Legende trims.

The A110 Pure is targeted at driving enthusiasts. It features one-piece Sabelt sports seats that weigh barely more than 13 kilograms (28.6 pounds) each and, combined with other weight-saving measures, helps keep the curb weight below 1,100 kg ( 2,425 lbs). It’s not entirely stripped out, though, and still comes with features like air-conditioning and satellite navigation.

Buyers can also add upgraded Brembo brakes and an adaptive exhaust system and can upgrade to the adjustable comfort seats. Those come standard on the Legende model, which is geared more towards every day driving and grand touring and comes with leather upholstery. Customers can also choose between two Focal sound systems and two wheel designs for each version, along with an array of new colors.

Both versions use the same 1.8-liter turbo four producing 252 metric horsepower (248 hp) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and the A110 delivers a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

Pricing starts at €54,700 for the A110 Pure and €58,500 for the A110 Legende, or $67k and $72k, respectively, at today’s exchange rates.

Along with the new road-going models, Alpine also revealed the new A110 GT4, a track version developed by racing partner Signatech, with which it won the LMP2 category in the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship.

The GT4 model packs more power and downforce than the existing A110 Cup and features Brembo brakes, racing slicks, a sequential gearbox, competition-spec aero and a full roll cage, racing bucket with harness and fire extinguisher inside, while air conditioning is an option.

The A110 GT4 will begin competing in select events later this year. The first customer examples will be ready for next season and existing owners of the A110 Cup will be offered the chance to upgrade their cars to GT4 spec as well.

    Im just not a fan of this design, but the GT4 does look kinda cool. Still, my money would go elsewhere (Monopoly money that is).
