ALPINE A110 TAKES EVO MAGAZINE'S COUPE OF THE YEAR AWARD

  • Alpine A110 picks up another coveted trophy
  • evo magazine praises accessibility of A110’s performance
  • Success rounds off incredible 2018 for Alpine’s A110 sportscar

The Alpine A110 has been named Coupe of the Year in evo magazine’s annual awards issue.

Discussing the Alpine A110, Stuart Gallagher, Editor of evo magazine, said: "There’s such finesse about the Alpine’s approach to everything it does that you swear blind you’ve upped your game as a driver with every trip. Thrills and rewards are rarely this accessible.”

John Barker, evo Contributing Editor, added: "Within 20 yards you’re smiling because the A110 feels light and small and refreshingly different… It covers the ground in a way that we haven’t seen since the original Elise, with a deftness, a lightness of touch which at times feels like alchemy.”

Sébastien Erphelin, Alpine Managing Director, said: “Thank you to evo for their recognition of the A110. It’s clear that the Alpine A110 has been extremely well received by the specialist motoring press and we’re delighted to have won another significant award. It’s been an incredible year for us and it’s exciting to see the reaction to the A110 and, most importantly, that customers are enjoying driving their new cars.”

The evo Car of the Year issue goes on sale today, Friday 21st December.
