Alpine is a French automotive manufacturer with strong roots in racing and sports cars dating back to 1955. The Alpine A110 SportsX features a combination of stylish design with precision engineering. Alpine’s rally racing heritage shines through on the A110 in a way that pays homage to their winning car in the 1973 Monte Carlo Rally event.
The Alpine A110 SportsX features a wider body of 80mm and 60mm of additional ground clearance when compared to standard models. These adjustments make the A110 SportsX a very capable rally racer. The lightweight design creates a very agile driving experience while delivering plenty of fun.
With its increased ground clearance, the A110 SportsX may seem more like an SUV. However, two door coupe styling along with its rear-wheel drive performance screams sports car all the way. Toss in the mid-engine layout and you have a pure driving enthusiast experience in the SportsX.
A turbo-charged 1.8L 4-cylinder pumps out 248 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. This engine enables the 2,420 pound Alpine A110 SportsX to scoot from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. A dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission developed by Getrag assists with getting power to the rear wheels.
Alpine’s resurgence in the automotive world is a credit to their heritage and racing performance. The A110 SportsX draws inspiration from Alpine’s rally history while providing a modern driving experience.
Unless you are a rally driver for Alpine’s team, it may be difficult to get behind the wheel of the SportsX. As of today, the Alpine A110 SportsX is not available for sale. Fans of rally racing can still dream about driving the SportsX though.
