Renault Australia has released pricing for the new Alpine A110, with the French sports car starting at $97,000 plus on-road costs for the entry-level Pure, $103,500 for the up-specced Legende, and $106,500 for the limited Australian Premiere Edition.
The order books are now open for the three variant range, with deliveries expected to start in the fourth quarter of this year for the Australian Premiere Edition, followed by the Legende and Pure in Q1 of 2019.
The Australian Premiere Edition is limited to just 60 units, and will come standard in ‘Alpine Blue’ metallic paint, and will be fitted with additional performance components including Brembo brakes, a bi-modal sports exhaust, and lightweight one-piece Sabelt bucket seats.
Other standard equipment includes 18-inch ‘Fuchs’ forged alloy wheels, blue highlights, and aluminium pedals.
The order books are now open for the three variant range.
Middling the line-up, the Legende is distinguished by its two-tone wheels designed to pay homage to the classic Berlinette 1600S, and full leather upholstery in black or brown with carbon-fibre interior trim pieces.
The Legende also gets six-way adjustable seats, a reversing camera – and like all three A110 variants – comes standard with climate control, satellite navigation and LED lights. A premium audio system and bi-modal sports exhaust can be added to the Legende as options.
The entry-level Pure makes use of leather and microfibre interior upholstery with matte carbon-fibre trim pieces, and is fitted with the same one-piece Sabelt sports seats as in the Australian Premiere Edition (they weigh just 13.1 kilograms each).
Alpine A110 Pure customers can option for the uprated Brembo brakes, sports exhaust and "Focal" audio system, as well as front and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera.
As previously reported, the ultra-lightweight A110 has an all-aluminium construction and is powered by a mid-mounted 185kW/320Nm 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.
The Alpine A110 is a competitor to the Porsche 718 Cayman, and could also be considered a rival to the likes of the BMW 2 series coupe.
Drive is sent direct to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which propels the French sports coupe from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds before hitting its electronically-limited top speed of 250km/h. Three driving modes are available: Normal, Sport and Track.
Although a more affordable option, the Alpine A110 is a competitor to the Porsche 718 Cayman, and could also be considered a rival to the likes of the BMW 2 series coupe.
