The much anticipated Alpine A110 has launched in Australia and we are excited to announce that it will be attending the 2018 Geelong Revival.

Alpine is an iconic racing brand first established in 1955 by race driver Jean Redélé in France. Alpine epitomises a lightweight performance car that delivers precision handling. This was true in the 1960s and 1970s, when the original A110 won the LeMans 24 hour event. It is the heritage to which the new Alpine A110 remains true.

Sophisticated and lightweight with a ridged short chassis, this 2-seat coupé is built for pure driving enjoyment. The mid-rear engined Alpine A110 has not only been voted Most Beautiful Car of 2017 at the Festival Automobile International but also has a near-perfect front/ rear weight distribution of 44:56. Made almost entirely of aluminium the Alpine A110 weighs under 1100kg and poowered by a 1.8L turbo charged engine it can get you from 0-100km per hour in only 4.5 seconds. Alpine's racing heritage is again underlined in the interior with leather and microfiber upholstery with an homage to the original A110 in its 'red' start button.
