News: New Alpine A110 San Remo 1973, limited to 200 pieces.

Mar 16, 2023,09:19 AM

To celebrate the the first world championship title, in 1973. 

A special blue, some stickers, the GT Chassis, more supple than the S, 300 HP and some special details such as a full Alcantara interior, and... A Red Carbon roof! 

Cherry on the cake, a video: 


The price is huge ( 89 000 euros ) but the outcome is quite cool, I must say. 

I would well see this " base " to make some mandatory improvements: Titanium exhausts, bigger and lighter brakes, a more efficient suspension, dynamic admission, a lithium battery and lighter rims. It would be a BOMB, for approximatively the price of a R.

Just kidding Nico. Alpines are the best from France (Bugatti apart) but I am not so sure about the livery.

this alpine is always captivating to look at

the old one is more voluptous though

Yep, agreed.

No doubt it looks nice

But it's an awful lot of money for what it is.

Smart move

You will also learn a lot in the process which is very gratifying (or frustrating at time). My previous ride was quite extensively modified, this time I'm sticking to stock as long as I can (but the temptation is real, I need to stay strong!).

Wow! That's Corvette money in USA!

The Corvette is very good. I haven't driven it yet, but the specs show excellent double wishbone suspension, mid engine, 6.2 liter V8 engine, nearly 500 hp, mid engined, and even a dry sump lubrication system! Fully equipped comes in around $88,000 USD pl... 

Still, a great car, even at that price...

It is 100-200kg overweight. But I have a feeling it's a great car! Corvettes were always interesting cars, but the generation I test drove back in 2005 or so, I didn't like, the steering ratio wasn't right, the weight of the steering wasn't right, the bra... 

Wait until you see the Z06 version!

 By: patrick_y : March 17th, 2023-23:54
The Z06 version will have a smaller engine (5.5L vs 6.2) but will have much more horsepower, around 670 vs 495! It will be a high revving very emotional engine. It will also be possible to specify the car with carbon fiber wheels! Saving about 5 kg per co...

It’s a real shame America loses out on cars like this. An Alpine, Lotus Elise and 987 would be perfect for some of the less well known backroads in America.

Yes, perfect trio!

Nice, but I’d prefer it in all blue.

 By: RabidManatee : March 16th, 2023-18:06
Or grey…

Grey is perfect! ;)

You chose well, mon ami.

 By: RabidManatee : March 17th, 2023-01:34

Thank you!

 By: amanico : March 17th, 2023-03:54

That’s a beauty!

Wish we could get them here!

Maybe, one day!
