    A friend of mine said he thinks he can just about afford one as well as the new house he is about to build. I suggested he email Renault Aust now and put in an order as I imagine the numbers will be limited and snaped up pretty quickly. He said he'll think about it. Wow that's about as much chance I've got of getting a ride in one.

    This was on the Car Advice site

    Alpine A110 confirmed for Australia

    The Alpine A110 sports car has been confirmed for the Australian market this week, set to arrive Down Under in the second half of 2018.

    According to the French manufacturer, Australia is the second market outside of Europe to be confirmed, and one of only three right-hand-drive markets to be receiving the A110 so far.

    While full pricing and specifications are to be confirmed, the local division says the launch model for Australia will “draw its inspiration’ from Europe’s ‘Premiere Edition’, which features 18-inch ‘Otto Fuchs’ forged alloy wheels, Sabelt monocoque sports seats, Brembo sports brakes, an active sports exhaust, an Alpine-tuned Focal audio system, carbon-fibre interior trim, and brushed aluminium pedals.

    “On behalf of Alpine Cars, it is with great pleasure that we can make this announcement today,” said Andrew Moore, managing director of Renault Australia.

    “[The A110] combines the timeless Alpine principles of compact size, light weight and dynamic agility and keeps true to the spirit of its predecessors, in particular the A110 Berlinette.”

    “We are delighted that it won’t be long until its loyal fans, as well as those new to the brand, can get behind the wheel,” he added.

    Power comes from a mid-mounted 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine developing 185kW of power and 320Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sourced from Getrag.

    Alpine claims the A110 can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds, on its way to an electronically-governed top speed of 250km/h.

    Full details and pricing will be revealed closer to launch, though the company has confirmed “a range of other variants” will be offered following the special launch model.

    Yet another iconic name milked for all they can get, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with a real A110.
