Alpine has brought its limited edition A110 Légende GT to the UK for the first time. 

The French sports car made back-to-back appearances at the London Concours and Concours of Elegance Hampton Court Palace - two of only a handful of motor shows to go ahead since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Légende GT is billed as “the most refined interpretation of the A110 to date”, and conceived as a more long distance-friendly version of the acclaimed sports car

Based on the current A110 Légende, the GT can be told apart from the standard car by its gold badging and 18in alloy wheels, translucent white rear light clusters and amber-coloured leather seats. It will be sold in three colours: Deep Black and Abyss Blue, which are already available on the standard A110, and a new option called Mercury Silver, seen in public for the first time here. 

The car’s seats are six-way adjustable as standard, while additional bespoke interior features include a 12 o’ clock steering wheel marker, brown panel stitching, carbonfibre trim elements and a commemorative numbered plaque on the centre console. An extra storage unit between the two seats underlines the variant’s touring potential. 

The A110’s 1.8-litre turbocharged engine is unaltered; the Légende GT packs 249bhp, can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and will hit a top speed of 156mph. A performance exhaust, uprated Brembo brakes, parking sensors, a reversing camera and upgraded speaker system feature as standard. 

Just 400 units will be offered worldwide, with prices starting from £59,140 in the UK – roughly a £10,000 premium over the standard A110 Pure.

Alpine has also revealed the A110 Color Edition, which will be available for a limited time in a new, unique colour each year. For 2020, the Color Edition is painted in Sunflower Yellow, a shade taken from Alpine’s original colour palette from the 1960s. 

The Color Edition is based on the range-topping A110 S, and as such is powered by an uprated version of the A110’s four-cylinder motor, producing 288bhp. That model’s performance-oriented chassis set-up also features.

Rounding off Alpine’s three-pronged unveiling is the Atelier Alpine personalisation programme, which will offer 29 new heritage-inspired paint colours for the A110, each of which will be applied to just 110 cars. The special hues can be specified for all models in the A110 range for an additional £4200.

It says in the article that it's based on the A110S, not the A110 Pure, so it's a £2k uplift from the A110S, or the £10k includes the engine and suspension changes, as well as all the other differences between the Pure and S.

Why don't you ever read anything before posting? You'd look a lot less stupid.

Ah-ha - my mistake. Still, not nearly as far out as dimwitted xxxx.

The GT is based on the Legende, not the Pure, so £7k difference, not £10k.

The Color Edition is based on the S, not the Pure, so £2k difference, not £4.2k.

You were wrong then and you're wrong now, thicko. In fact, the easy way to tell when you're wrong is that you've posted something.

Says the person who just admitted getting wrong with the updated article. Call it a day on your A110 fan boy stuff. I say it and 4.2k paint jobs are over priced as are is the rest of the car, my opinion get over it.

 I was liking it till I read the asking price, almost £60K!, sorry, but this is a case of what you could be driving secondhand for that kind of money, I thought it'll be between £40-50K maybe, it looks that kind of price range, but, £60K?, taking the urine me thinks.

Is this the most expensive factory derived paint job ever for a small renault ever. Arn Cla have plenty of unsold 2019 stock so these crazy prices are not helping sales

Nonsense - they've got nine listed in total. Three are Alpine UK stock that they're co-listing. Three are used. The other three are ex-demonstrators - so only those three are their own unsold stock.

They have over 1200 BMWs, 53 Abarths, 1300 Audis, but you think three cars is "plenty"?

They've got more Infinitis than Alpines.
