The London Motor Show is delighted to announce that Alpine’s stunning A110 two-seater sports car will be given its UK debut at this year’s Battersea Park event.
The A110 hogged the limelight at the recent Geneva Motor Show on its global reveal, with visitors marvelling at its retro-inspired, curvaceous design and aerodynamic features.
And now, alongside a number of high-profile exhibitors from May 4-7, Alpine will showcase its latest creation in front of tens of thousands of enthusiasts at The London Motor Show over the full three days of the event.
The London Motor Show is one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the automotive calendar, and it’s only fitting that a car of such high international acclaim will take the stage at Battersea Park.
Resurrecting the name and spirit of Alpine’s Berlinette model for the Sixties and Seventies, the French brand’s latest production car is designed to reflect the “timeless principles of compact size, light weight and agility”.
It features a full aluminium platform and upper body that make the car aerodynamic enough to not require a rear wing. The result is a flowing, elegant body that’s sure to turn plenty of heads at The London Motor Show.
The A110 is powered by a 1.8-litre turbo engine that produces 252hp in order to fully exploit the car’s unique aerodynamic properties and lightweight and agile frame. Alpine has confirmed that it will race from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds.
Alec Mumford, Chairman of The London Motor Show, said: “It’s a real accolade to have the Alpine A110 showcased on these shores for the very first time at The London Motor Show. Due to popular demand, we’ve already had to release more tickets for May’s event, and having the Alpine A110 make its UK debut goes to show just how much weight it carries in the automotive world. We’re very excited to release the A110 to a UK crowd and anticipate the car well and truly stealing the show.”
