Lot Description

This Alpine A110 Premiere Edition is a superb example of the limited-run launch special, and a car that has now firmly established itself as a modern performance hero. It is powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged inline-four, producing 248bhp, paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shift. The odometer shows 7,600 miles from new.

Weighing in at just over 1,100kg thanks to a body and chassis that are 96% aluminium, the A110 is a remarkably composed and exciting sports car. Launched to rave reviews by the motoring press; it reset the debate on performance machines with its lightweight athleticism.

First registered on 19 January 2019, this car has two previous registered keepers, though the first owner had it for just two weeks because a different new car he had ordered arrived at the same time. The seller acquired the car in May 2020.

Being a Premiere Edition car, it features unique 18-inch forged aluminium rims, quilted leather Sabelt bucket seats, metallic paint and the Alpine sports exhaust as standard. While a majority of cars appear to have been specified in the ‘Bleu Alpine’ hue, this car is finished in the rare ‘Noir Profond’ colour.

The bodywork and paint is said to be in excellent condition throughout, with no scuffs or scratches, and certainly no panel damage. Its black-on-black colour scheme is punctuated by bright badging, exhaust tip, and the vibrant blue brake callipers.Its black alloys are in superb order, with no kerbing marks or other damage.

Turning to the interior, the seller notes no blemishes or wear to the black leather and Dinamica suede upholstery, which is accented by blue stitching and polished metal accents around the cabin. The leather-trimmed steering wheel is also in great shape, finished with a blue ‘12 o’clock’ marker, while standard equipment includes Bluetooth, cruise control, and a seven-inch touch-screen with European navigation.

As a late example of the Premiere Edition, its first service only fell due earlier this year, which was carried out in March 2020 at 5,100 miles by Alpine Centre Winchester. The car’s first annual MOT test is not due until 18 January 2022, and it still wears the factory-fitted Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres, which are in good condition.

Accompanying the car are all of the original handbooks, as well as documentation for the recent service. Of note is the fact that this Alpine A110 comes with a full set of fitted luggage, including two hard-shell suitcases for the front compartment, and three soft bags for the rear. It is understood that there was only a limited supply of these cases, and the seller has never seen another car with a full set advertised for sale.

This Alpine A110 Premiere Edition is a wonderful driver’s car, and an exemplar of the benefits of lightweighting structures to enhance performance - perhaps best illustrated by the fact that legendary designer Gordon Murray now owns one as his daily driver. Understood to be one of just 140 Premiere Edition cars delivered to the UK, this is also a rare sports coupe, and benefits from the balance of a three-year / 100,000km warranty, which includes the European-wide Alpine Assistance package. It is ready to drive and enjoy immediately, but would also make a superb addition to any collection of contemporary automotive heroes.

All UK-registered cars and motorbikes on Collecting Cars are run through an online HPI check. This vehicle shows no insurance database markers for damage or theft. It is currently covered by a finance agreement, but the remaining balance will be cleared before ownership is transferred to the buyer.

Please note: the cherished plate shown on the car is not included in the sale. It will be switched back to an age-related registration plate in the event of a successful auction.
