May 17 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the founder of the Alpine brand, the French racer Jean Redel. On this occasion, the company prepared a special version of its only model to date – the medium-engined rear-wheel-drive coupe A110.
For the basis, they took a luxurious version GT (former Legende) – with turbocharged up to 300 hp and 340 Nm petrol engine 1.8, more comfortable suspension and seats, and expanded standard equipment. The sports car received the Montebello Grey body color that Jean Redel especially liked, a gloss black roof, 18-inch Grand Prix wheels, and silver brake calipers.
The interior of the Alpine A110 GT J. Redele is finished in black leather with gray stitching. The edition is symbolically limited to 100 copies, each will have a special plaque, indicating its belonging to the limited edition.
The special version was premiered at a festive event in Dieppe. More than 1100 Alpine sports cars of different generations and a modern “formula” race car A522 were present. The keys to the first A110 GT J. Redele were handed to Michel Redele, the widow of the company’s founder.
The remaining 99 copies will be available for order on June 1 through the brand’s application. The price of the question is 83 thousand euros including taxes.
In just a few years, Alpine will completely switch to the production of powerful electric cars. Thus, the direct heir of the A110 coupe developed together with Lotus, will be in 2026. A year earlier, the GT X-Over crossover based on the CMF-EV platform was shared with the Nissan Ariya and Renaut Megane E-Tech Electric. In addition, there are plans for a B-segment hatchback based on CMFB-EV architecture.
