ALPINE has announced two more variants of its razor-sharp A110 coupe to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, bringing its growing horde of fans a lighter, stripped out version or a more luxurious option.
Alpine says the Pure (below) will be a more “driver focused” offering than the Premiere Edition which introduced the model. It’s expected this will mean a drop in weight to just 1080kg (a loss of 20kg), thanks to some deleted luxury features, utilising some different cabin materials, and lightweight wheels to minimise unsprung mass.
The Pure is likely to be the cheapest A110 available once the trio go on sale. While the announcement is accompanied by official photos and some minor details, full specifications are being held off until the Swiss reveal.
The Legende (below) swings the pendulum in the other direction, intended to be a softer, more refined offering for daily driving duties. Leather seats, softer suspension settings, and some additional creature comforts are likely to be the key differentiating features.
Each will fitted with the same double wishbone suspension, albeit in different states of tune, and the 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder mid-mounted engine.
Power levels will remain consistent for each model at 185kW and 320Nm, which will be sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Premier Edition Alpine A110s are expected to arrive in Australia in the third quarter of this year, with local pricing yet to be confirmed.
