Alpine A110 GT J. Rédélé Limited Edition Celebrates the 100th birthday of the brand's founder

Alpine has unveiled a new A110 sportscar special edition. This one is named after racing driver and Alpine founder Jean Rédélé, and it is limited to 100 units to commemorate the 100th anniversary of his birth.

The Alpine A110 GT J. Rédélé is finished in Montebello Grey, Alpine's founder's favorite color. It has a high-gloss black roof and black-painted 18-inch Grand Prix alloy wheels with silver brake calipers.

Inside, the upholstery is black leather with grey stitching. A numbered plaque with Jean Rédélé's signature adds to the collectability of the special edition.

The vehicle is based on the A110 GT and features a mid-mounted turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 296 horsepower (221 kW / 300 PS) and torque of 340 Nm (251 lb-ft).

The French sports automobile has a top speed of 250 km/h and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.2 seconds (155 mph).

The A110 GT J. Rédélé made its debut in Dieppe, France, at a historic gathering of over 1,100 Alpine owners. Alpine planned a parade to commemorate the centenary of Jean Rédélé's birth, and a BWT Alpine F1 single-seater was driven for the first time on Dieppe's roads.

On June 1, Alpine will begin taking orders for the A110 GT J. Rédélé, which will cost €83,000 ($89,320). The A5 hot hatch, the GT X-Over grand tourer, and the EV replacement to the A110 have all vowed to offer an all-electric range by 2026.
