The A110 Legende GT 2021 is Alpine's classiest car yet
The 288bhp engine of the A110S meets softer furnishings - and a bigger price
Alpine’s future may look electric, but the very much petrol-powered A110 sports car continues service until new projects come along.
And this might be its ‘best of all worlds’ option. It’s the Legende GT 2021, a limited edition that pairs the punchier 288bhp 1.8-litre 4cyl turbo from the A110S with the softer demeanour of the Legende GT.
This is Alpine going as classy as possible, and as such there are just two colour options – matte Mercury Silver with black Sabelt seats, or Abyss Blue with brown Sabelts. Both “immerse the occupants in an interior environment that’s unmistakably GT", we’re told, though it looks like the crummy infotainment system hasn’t suddenly had a technological reboot.
Helping tell your car apart from the outside – beyond those fancy paints – the GT 2021 gets a swathe of pale gold badging as well as new 18in diamond cut ‘Grand Prix’ wheels with gold brake calipers peeping through their spokes. The rear lights are translucent now, too.
While its 1,134kg kerb weight is up a smidge on other Alpines, it’s still lighter than most Fiestas and helps endow the GT 2021 with a 4.4secs 0-62mph time and 155mph top speed.
Just 300 will be sold in Europe, and it’s priced at £61,655 including a reversing camera and the upgraded Focal stereo system. Not far off Porsche’s 6cyl Cayman GTS 4.0. Eek.
Reckon it’s the one to have? Or would you keep your Alpine simple… and sub-£50k?
