Renault’s newly-revived Alpine brand has ended production of the limited-run A110 Premiere Edition model.
The entire batch of cars was sold in just a few days after its introduction last year, and the final examples will be shipped to their owners in the coming weeks, notes Alpine. All 1,955 units of the Alpine A110 Premiere Edition came with some weight saving measures, such as the forged wheels and one-piece Sabelt sports seats.
Another special addition is the active sports exhaust system, said to provide “a thrilling and rewarding driving experience”.
Now that the Premiere Edition is out of the way, Alpine can continue focusing on the production of the Pure and Legende variants at the Dieppe factory, in France.
The former offers a more driver-oriented approach and comes with Sabelt seats as well, along with leather trim, air conditioning, a satellite navigation system, front and rear LED lights, and 17-inch alloy wheels. In the United Kingdom, it has an MSRP of £46,905 ($60,253/€52,720), and buyers can spec optional equipment such as the active sports exhaust system, 18-inch alloy wheels, different front seats, Park Assist with reversing camera and more.
Meanwhile, the Alpine A110 Legend is priced from £50,805 ($65,262/€57,103) and adds standard six-way adjustable seats, black or brown leather trim, the Focal sound system and 18-inch alloy wheels.
All Alpine A110 models are powered by a 1.8-liter four-banger shared with the latest Megane RS. Channeling the 252 PS (248 hp / 185 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels is a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic gearbox. In a straight line, naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 4.5 seconds and top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).
Nos équipes sont heureuses de vous annoncer que l’ensemble des 1955 exemplaires de l’#AlpineA110 Première Édition ont été produits. L’usine de Dieppe est désormais pleinement concentrée sur la production des versions #A110Pure et #A110Légende. L’histoire continue. 🏆 pic.twitter.com/9XLEYQslPe
