The Alpine A110 was crowned Best Value Sports Car at the prestigious annual What Car?
Car of the Year Awards, highlighting how the iconic coupe outperforms rivals in terms of not
just driving dynamics, but also when it comes to performance per pound.

Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car? commented: “The A110 may be our value option, but

helping it feel lithe and involving."

Nic Burnside, MD of Alpine Cars UK, said: “With an intoxicating blend of style and
substance, backed up by an enviable thoroughbred history, the A110 is a favourite of the
press and enthusiasts alike. Couple this with the unrivalled value for money that this latest
award highlights, and it’s easy to see how the Alpine formula continues to find fans.”

Taking its styling cues from the legendary Berlinette, the A110 delivers enthralling
performance thanks to the agility of its ‘Alpine’ chassis and its characterful 252 bhp engine.
Weighing only 1,102 kg, the A110 can sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds, its 7-speed dual-
clutch transmission shifting ratios in 260 milliseconds.

With a focus on spirited, long-distance driving, the A110 GT offers a unique combination of
performance and elegance. Its specially tuned 300 bhp engine ups the ante with 0-62 mph
completed in just 4.2 seconds, while its 18-inch diamond cut Grand Prix alloy wheels, Focal
Premium audio system and heated seats accentuate its grand touring credentials.

The A110 S, meanwhile, is designed with track use more in mind. Exclusive lightweight
forged aluminium Fuchs wheels hint at the racing spirit of its sports chassis, while the
optional aerodynamic kit and semi-slick tyres allow the ultimate expression of its motorsport
