Limited to 400 examples worldwide, the A110 Légende GT takes the existing A110 Légende and adds bespoke design elements both inside and out, raising the A110 Légende’s elegant persona further.

A110 Color Edition 2020 is a new annual programme which introduces a new limited series to the Alpine model range. For 2020, A110 Color Edition is based on the A110S finished exclusively in Sunflower Yellow and will be offered for sale between now and the end of 2020. After this period, the paint finish will be retired from Alpine’s colour palette.

Finally, Atelier Alpine is the French sports car manufacturer’s personalisation programme. Along with 29 new exterior paint options which take inspiration from heritage colours from Alpine’s past, it also offers various wheel finishes and brake caliper colours.

A110 Légende GT delivers heightened luxury to the A110 premium sports car. Bespoke styling elements for the interior and exterior form a sophisticated and harmonious design, meaning A110 Légende GT is set to become the most sought-after A110 so far. The special model is available to order now and can be reserved through the Alpine app.

The limited-edition model is offered in three colours – Mercury Silver, which is new to the Alpine colour palette, plus Deep Black and Abyss Blue. Pale gold Alpine monograms and 18-inch diamond-cut Serac alloy wheels, also finished in pale gold, contrast subtly against all three body colours. Translucent white LED taillights mark A110 Légende GT apart from other A110s.

Within the cabin, backlit door sills feature the Alpine emblem while six-way adjustable Sabelt comfort seats come finished in warm amber leather – a bespoke upholstery shade – with matching leather on the door cards. Brown stitching, a 12 o’clock marker on the steering wheel to match and glossy carbon fibre elements with a unique copper weave set off the welcoming and sophisticated interior. A plaque on the centre console, numbered in build order, is a mark of distinction.

Underlining the car’s day-to-day practicality and refined grand touring character, A110 Légende GT is offered with a custom luggage set. Finished in the same colour leather as the seats, the three-piece set maximises space in the rear storage compartment. Meanwhile, a new storage unit between the seats is the ideal place to keep personal belongings.

As well as its elegant exterior design and distinctive cabin, A110 Légende GT is delivers comfort both in everyday driving and over longer journeys. It shares its chassis and powertrain with A110 Légende and, like all Alpines, it is based on a lightweight aluminium structure with a mid-engined layout and double wishbone suspension.

The combination of the 249hp 1.8-litre turbocharged engine, minimal weight and dual-clutch transmission help A110 Légende GT accelerate from zero to 62mph in 4.5 seconds and allow for a top speed of 156mph. The car comes with several features as standard: an active sports exhaust, uprated Brembo brakes, parking sensors, a reversing camera and Focal stereo lend A110 Légende GT exacting driving dynamics as well as effortless everyday usability.

Alpine design director Antony Villain comments: “With A110 Légende GT we have stretched the sophistication and grand touring aspects of the A110 – showing that as well as being a thrilling sports car, an Alpine can equally be a refined GT as well. It is the most elegant Alpine so far, designed to appeal to buyers who value lasting quality and timeless design, be it in the watch they wear, the clothes they choose or the sports car they drive.

“The three colour options we have made available for A110 Légende GT reinforce the car's subtle and refined character. The pale gold elements and translucent taillights clearly identify the most sophisticated car in the Alpine range. The amber leather upholstery within the cabin and carbon fibre pieces with a warm copper weave, meanwhile, deliver our most inviting interior yet. A110 Légende GT is the perfect sports car for that well-earned weekend getaway.”

The A110 Légende GT is available from €69,300.
