Renault-owned Alpine has brought a new A110-based show car to this year’s International Automobile Festival of the Invalides (Paris). Dubbed the Alpine A110 SportsX Show Car, this wide-bodied and raised A110 was inspired by the winning A110 of the 1973 Monte Carlo Rally.
With an 80 mm (3.15 inches) wider body and a raised ground clearance of 60 mm (2.36 inches), the Alpine A110 SportsX Show Car looks nothing like the A110 Pure it was based on. In fact, it looks suspiciously like a crossover, albeit one that has just two doors. Beyond that, not much details are available at this point.
We are not if the show car has the same 252 PS motor as the Pure. All we have for now are some official images which you can find along with this post.
In addition to the Alpine A110 SportsX Show Car, Alpine has also brought along the A210 prototype, the Alpine Vision Gran Turismo, the A110 1800 – 1972 Gp4 driven by François Alessandri and Jean Pierre Manzagol, the A110 SportsX, an A110 “berlinette” 1300 of 1971 and the A110S.
Save for the A110S, which was revealed at last year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, the rest of the cars at the show are, obviously, not for sale. That’s including the either you love it or hate it Alpine A110 SportsX Show Car. As for the A110S, it has a €66,500 (about U$73,260) sticker before options.
