You might not have noticed, but we quite like the Alpine A110 here at TG. We also like the A110 Cup and A110 GT4 race cars, and we’re sometimes partial to a little bit of history.

So, let’s take you back to 1973, when many well-known international rallies came together to form the World Rally Championship. The inaugural season was won by, you guessed it, the original Alpine A110.

And so, there are no prizes for guessing what our reaction was to the new A110 Rally, which is based on the lightweight chassis of the current GT4 car and looks simply fantastic. Oh yes.

The new car has been developed by Alpine in partnership with Signatech. It retains the RWD setup, but has been given an FIA homologated roll cage, Sabelt bucket seats, a six-speed sequential gearbox, Brembo brakes and a new hydraulic suspension system.
