Would You Like An Alpine?

There are two new version of this brand that will really interest serious car enthusiasts. Of course the Alpine badge is not very popular to majority of the Philippines simply because there is no local distributor just yet. But even then, the Alpine is one of the excellent cars ever made and it is a joy to drive.

The two new versions of the Alpine A110 will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The A110 Pure and Légende versions remain true to Alpine’s timeless principles of compact size, lightness and agility. Both versions share the same full aluminium structure, 252hp 1.8-litre mid-mounted engine, mated to a wet clutch, 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) gearbox with double wishbone suspension front and rear.

  • Pure is the A110 at its lightest and most driver-focused. It is destined to live its life on winding mountain roads and retains the Première Edition’s minimalist yet high-quality approach.
  • Légende adds more refinement and sophistication for everyday driving or long distance touring. Standard equipment includes 6-way adjustable lightweight Sabelt seats, full leather upholstery and gloss-finished carbon fibre interior trim.

The A110 Pure and Légende will be introduced during Alpine’s press conference at the Geneva Auto Show on 6th March at 09h30 in Hall 4. More information will be available then. Meanwhile, take a look at the new Alpine.
