French sportscar maker Alpine, has just unveiled their new limited-edition A110 called the Legende GT and Colour Edition. The former of which is limited to just 400 specimens worldwide. The Colour Edition is launched alongside the brand’s new Atelier personalisation program.
Starting with the Legende GT. It’s still powered by the A110’s 185kW 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch EDC transmission, that’s capable of propelling the lightweight French to 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 250km/h.
However, in this 2020 version the Legende GT comes with several features as standard, including: an active sports exhaust, uprated Brembo brakes, parking sensors, a reversing camera and a Focal stereo system, said the brand.
Inside, you’ll find a pair of six-way adjustable Sabelt comfort seats upholstered in amber leather with matching leather on the door cards. Even the carbon fibre trim gets a unique copper weave. Additionally, the door sills are backlit with the Alpine emblem and there’s a plaque on the centre console, numbered by build order.
The limited-edition Legende GT is also offered up in three colours, namely: Mercury Silver (which is new to the Alpine colour palette), Deep Black and Abyss Blue. Pale gold Alpine monograms and 18-inch diamond-cut Serac alloy wheels, also finished in pale gold, contrast subtly against all three body colours.
Alpine design director Antony Villain comments: “With A110 Légende GT we have stretched the sophistication and grand touring aspects of the A110 – showing that as well as being a thrilling sports car, an Alpine can equally be a refined GT as well. It is the most elegant Alpine so far, designed to appeal to buyers who value lasting quality and timeless design, be it in the watch they wear, the clothes they choose or the sports car they drive.
Moving onto the Colour Edition, which the company says emphasises individuality. The colour you see here is a shade that’s taken from past Alpines called Sunflower Yellow, and it will only be offered on orders placed this year before it is retired from the palette. The yellow is contrasted by black elements such as the logos and Alpine monograms, the 18-inch GT Race alloy wheels and the specific inserts in the front LED headlights. The company is also offering a carbon fibre roof as an option.
The Colour Edition – unlike the Legende GT – will be based on the A110S which houses 215kW of power along a with focused chassis that’s tuned for a century sprint time of just 4.4 seconds, while the top speed is rated at 260km/h.
Alpine Design Director Antony Villain comments: “The new A110 Color Edition programme gives us the opportunity to really enhance the characteristics of different versions of the A110. For 2020, we have recreated the Sunflower Yellow colour from Alpine’s past, here with a solid finish to really complement the sporty, intense persona of the A110S. For me, Sunflower Yellow and the A110S make for a perfect combination.”
The A110 Légende GT is available from €69,300 (AU$121,267) while the A110 Color Edition 2020 is available at €71,000 (AU$124,241).
