The Alpine A110 R Fernando Alonso: a very limited and exclusive edition.
32 units with patented innovation
The Fernando Alonso limited edition of the All-new Alpine A110 R boasts an added level of exclusivity and unique on-track sensations. The limited edition has benefited from the expertise and precious input from the two-time Formula 1 World Champion.
Aesthetics by Alonso
This edition is available exclusively with the Racing Matte Blue used on the Formula 1 A522. The harmonious exterior colour has been altered thanks to the input from Fernando Alonso, for even sportier feel. The front and rear carbon-fibre bonnet are partially painted, respectively with the same Racing Matte Blue and the Deep Black used for the body, while they have an entirely carbon-fibre finish on the A110 R. The car’s rear is darker, with a marked graphic design: the rear shield is black, and the spoiler support columns are anodized black. The orange brake callipers are a nod to Fernando Alonso’s historic colours. Lastly, details such as the grey edges on the rims, the blue-orange-yellow flag on the rear quarter windows in the driver’s trademark colours, and the varnish protected ‘Fernando Alonso’ signature, reflect the unique collaboration while giving car afficionados an additional feel of exclusivity.
Truly assertive sportiness
The interior exudes a sporty feel bearing the hallmarks of the Formula 1 driver: his recognisable orange colour features on the door straps and steering wheel centrepiece, contrasting against the microfibre finish used throughout the car’s interior. Fernando Alonso’s signature embroidered into the seats, along with the blue-orange-yellow flag on the door panels, pay homage to the collaboration between Alpine and the driver. A quote that represents the driver’s philosophy has been laser-cut into the sun visor: “There is more than one path to the top of the mountain”.
Adjustable chassis: for the ‘Fernando Alonso’ feel
The Fernando Alonso A110 R limited series features a unique adjustment system to easily and quickly change the height of the body, as well as the stiffness of the suspension. In just a few quick and easy steps, a shim placed at the base of the spring means the spring’s position can be changed and the vehicle lowered by 10mm for track-only use. At the same time, the stiffness of the suspension is increased by +5%. An Alpine-patented innovation, it will give enthusiasts ready access to track settings approved by Fernando Alonso himself on Barcelona’s F1 circuit.
An added layer of exclusivity
Develop a sports car in collaboration with one of its own Formula 1 drivers – the ultimate proof of Alpine’s passion for high-performance sports cars. The Fernando Alonso limited edition has been made as a run of only 32 models, a tribute to the number of F1 victories achieved by the Spanish driver. Each engraved plaque located on the centre console bears the name of both the circuit and year of a victory race belonging to the two-time world champion. Numbered from 1 to 32, in chronological order, the tribute plaques add an extra layer of exclusivity that is sure to delight enthusiasts.
Lucky buyers of the limited series model will be given a Fernando Alonso replica racing helmet, signed by the two-time world champion himself.
