Alpine A110 Gains Premium Interior Courtesy Of Carlex Design

You wouldn’t call the new Alpine A110 isn’t exactly call luxurious, or even premium for that matter. In fact, various reviewers have complained about cheap-feeling plastics throughout the French sport car’s interior, which means there’s room for improvement.

If that’s your mindset, then you can check out what Carlex Design managed to do for this blue A110, creating a considerably more stylish ambiance inside.

The Polish tuner infused the front seats, dashboard, center console, pillars, headliner and door panels (mostly) with white leather and added blue floor mats. As you can see, the blue upper inserts on the doors were kept as they were, so as to further boost that white-blue contrast, which is complemented by the stitching.

This is easily one of the most stylish A110 interiors we’ve ever seen, and while it’s might stray a bit from the “bare essentials only” formula, we’re willing to bet plenty of customers out there would prefer it this way.

As far as we know, no performance mods were made, which is in line with the company’s mindset. Still, the A110 is already huge fun to drive, thanks to its well sorted-out chassis and 1.8-liter four-pot that produces 252 PS (248 HP) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque.

With the aid of a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox propelling the rear wheels, as well as a 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs) curb weight, it gets to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds and maxes out at 250 km/h (155 mph). Thus, while a little more power would certainly be welcome, it’s not that the A110 really needs it anyway.

    Seems a contradiction to what the car is supposed to be- Light-sporty-fun performance. That leather adds weight and 1.8L-T four cylinder engines do not like extra weight. Especially in traffic with the ac on. The efforts would have been better spent on a larger engine.

    The original seats look better and this is just an interior colour change from black to white.
    Don’t really see why any a110 customer would go out of their way to get this.
