A110 GT Jean Rédélé Limited Edition - Paying Tribute to 100 Years of Alpine

2022 marks the 100th anniversary of Jean Rédélé’s birth

Born on May 17, 1922, Jean Rédélé was in his early 30s when founded Alpine back in 1955. Until then, he owned a Renault dealership in France and raced Dieppe-Rouen with a 4 CV. The first car built under the Alpine name was the A106 - a name referring to the power pack of the 4CV of the 1060 series. In 1971, Alpine cars finished first, second, and fourth in the Monte Carlo rally, while in 1973 the A110 1800 finished first, second, third, and fifth at the same rally and won the World Rally Championship with 155 points, beating Porsche, Lancia and Ford.

2022 marks the centenary of its founder’s birth and in order to celebrate the event, Alpine announced the launch of the special edition A110 GT J. Rédélé. The unveiling took place during the Alpine 100-year celebration, where another 1,000 examples of iconic Alpine models past and present gathered together for an epic party.

Alpine A610 - Thirty Years of Rear-engined French Goodness

The Alpine A610 was a missed opportunity to create what could have been the only lineup of cars to rival the reign of the 911

The Alpine A610 was as odd as they came. It was the quirky French performance automaker’s last hurrah before the brand was resurrected after 22 years of absence with the outgoing A110. This arguably iconic piece of French motoring from Renault’s relatively unknown performance brand recently celebrated its 30th birthday and reminded us how quirky French automobiles are much loved and celebrated by the automotive community.

2022 Alpine A110 Comes With More Power and New Aero

2022 Alpine A110 Comes With More Power and New Aero

A revamped Alpine A110 resonates with the brand’s motorsport aspirations, by bringing more power and performance to the table

The saying “win on Sunday, sell on Monday” still carries weight in the automotive world and Alpine is one of the latest examples. 2021 was indeed a good year for the small French carmaker. It ventured into Formula One and won the Grand Prix in Hungary while simultaneously pushing ahead with the Endurance program in the Hypercar category. The company’s motorsport strife has been perfectly reflected by the revamped Alpine A110, which is even more exciting.

Alpine A108 Is The Forgotten Predecessor To The Original A110

Alpine A108 Is The Forgotten Predecessor To The Original A110

The 1958 Alpine A108 is a forgotten gem that put Alpine on the global Map. It also inspired the original A110

When it comes to high-performance sports cars, Alpine is rarely the first brand to come to mind. Nowadays, the brand is has been revived and the Alpine A110 is a faithful reboot to the original 1961 A110. What many don’t know, however, is that the original A110 is actually an evolution of an older model – the much less known A108.

Renault Sport Just Assumed The Identity of Alpine!

Renault Sport Just Assumed The Identity of Alpine!

Renault Sport becomes Alpine Cars as a major step in Renault Group’s reorganization

It is official. The performance division of Renault will no longer be called Renault Sport but Alpine. The Renault Sport name will no longer be present on the Formula One grid, as the team is becoming a part of the “Alpine Business Unit”. Since the entity incorporates all performance and motorsport aspects of the Renault brand, this means that the performance versions of Renault, like the Megane RS, will be under the Alpine name going forward.

The Alpine A110 Has Escaped the Clutches of Death For Now But It's Living On Borrowed Time

The Alpine A110 Has Escaped the Clutches of Death For Now But It’s Living On Borrowed Time

The French sports car isn’t getting the axe just yet, but its future doesn’t look good

In times of restrictions and cost-cutting, guess what sort of cars are the most vulnerable? It’s those models that don’t bring in a lot of sales and which, at the same time, are expensive to produce. Most often than not, those victims identify themselves as sports cars.

Let’s take the Alpine A110, for example. So far, it was able to elude its demise as the Dieppe plant won’t get shut down. The future, however, holds no good news for the A110.

2020 Alpine A110 Légende GT

2020 Alpine A110 Légende GT

Alpine delivers the goods with a fresh interpretation of the A110 sports car

Alpine’s return to automotive prominence hit another milestone with the unveiling of the A110 Legende GT. Billed as the “most refined interpretation of the A110 to date,” the A110 Legende GT breaks away from its contemporaries with a smattering of exclusive touches, including an all-new paint finish that will be seen for the first time on the A110.

There is, of course, more to the Legende GT than a fancy new paint. The special edition also boasts a bespoke exterior that matches the exclusivity of the interior. Alpine only plans to release 400 units of the A110 Legende GT. The special edition sports coupe is available to order in France with a starting price of €69,300. That’s around $77,000 based on current exchange rates.

The Alpine A110S Has Been Announced And We'll Probably See it at Le Mans

The Alpine A110S Has Been Announced And We’ll Probably See it at Le Mans

Unfortunately, we won’t see it in America

After months of speculation, Alpine has finally pulled the covers off of the A110S, the new range-topping model in the French automaker’s budding performance lineup. The A110S takes its place above the standard A110 with more power on tap in addition to a specific chassis setup and improved power-to-weight ratio. It’s largely still the same beautiful coupé that burst into the scene in 2017, but the A110S also benefits from a few cosmetic upgrades in the exterior and interior department. Unfortunately, the Alpine A110S isn’t coming to the U.S. market. It is already available in Europe, though, with a starting price of €66,500. That converts to around $75,000 in case you were wondering. Alpine is expected to start delivering the A110s to customers beginning in October this year. As for us here in America, well, tough luck yet again.

2020 Alpine A110 Sport

2020 Alpine A110 Sport

All the lessons from the GT4 racer are bound to reach the street sooner than you think

The Alpine A110 is one of the best sports cars currently on the market; the only car one James May bought last year out of all of the machines he got to test. And for good reason. The French midship pocket rocket that packs a 1.8-liter, turbocharged engine delivering 249 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque sent to the back wheels through a seven-speed automatic box benefits from an awesomely balanced chassis and sharp steering that make it a true driver’s car. Yes, there’s no manual on offer right now, but the car you see in these spy shots could be the answer to our prayers for more oomph as Renault could be hard at work developing a track-oriented version of the A110. We’re impatient!

When the Alpine A110-50 Concept broke cover in 2012, quickly followed by an Alpine-branded racing program in the European Le Mans Series and at Le Mans, we were wary at the prospect of a full-blown revival of the Alpine brand. You see, when Alpine was in its prime, the Renault-powered A110 1600 models were dominating the rally stages, and the car was a French symbol. Then, as years went by, Alpine kept its racing credentials by winning Le Mans outright in partnership with Renault but, on the road, the products moved away from the recipe that made the brand great. The A310 looked good, but the A610 of the ’80s and ’90s was just a cruiser. In a world of cars that get fatter by the day, pushed by safety regulations and the necessity to fill them to the brim with tech, we thought that a modern-day Alpine would just be a revival of the A610, an awkward, sluggish coupe that you either love or truly hate. Then we heard that it’ll be named ’A110’ and we crossed our fingers it won’t tarnish that legendary name.

Then, when the car finally saw the light of day we were left drooling at its styling. It evoked the original while still looking fresh and, most important of all, it was tiny. It looked smaller than even an Alfa 4C or a Porsche 718 Cayman - Renault’s benchmark when developing the A110 - and then people started driving the new Alpine, and the positive reviews started pouring. This time, though, it wasn’t a case of pundits getting together to give empty applause to a car that doesn’t deserve even a single-handed clap. No, the 2017 Alpine A110 is a well-sorted car that is deserving of the badge and of the heritage of the company founded by Jean Redele. A hotter version can only translate in a general tremble across the board from Audi’s TT to Porsche’s Cayman and everything in between.

The Alpine A110 Range Gets a Little More Diversity with the Pure and Légende Trim Levels

Adding more variety should help the A110 become more appealing to a lot of customers

The Alpine A110 GT4 may be hogging the spotlight in Geneva, but the French automaker’s booth also includes a pair of special edition A110s with personalities of their own. The Alpine A110 Pure Edition is the driver-focused version of the three new special edition A110s. Meanwhile, the Alpine A110 Legende is the comfort-oriented version. Altogether, the three special edition A110s help add more variety to the A110 lineup, giving customers the opportunity to choose which of these three versions suit them best.

2018 Alpine A110 Premiere Edition

2018 Alpine A110 Premiere Edition

First wave of A110 models will be limited to just 1,955 units and priced at a little over $66K

The Alpine A110 will likely go down as one of the most memorable sports cars launches in 2017. It marks a return from the ashes for the Alpine brand and it finally came after three years of being in development. Needless to say, a lot of people looked forward to the A110’s debut, and by and large, it didn’t disappoint. And if the positive reception surrounding the sports car isn’t enough, all of us can now look forward to the first special edition version of the A110. It’s called the A110 Premiere Edition, and it’s all set to be revealed at the Salon Price later this month.

As you can expect, the A110 Premiere Edition will come with exclusive features that “standard” versions of the sports car will come without. Most of these upgrades are of the cosmetic variety so don’t expect any power bumps to happen to the car’s 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It’s still going to produce 252 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, numbers that are actually impressive for a sports car with a four-cylinder engine. What you can expect though is that the A110 will be limited to just 1,955 units, the number that references the year Alpine was founded.
