• Alpine A110 named ‘Sports Car of the Year’ by What Car? magazine
  • Award presented at The Grosvenor Hotel, London
  • Alpine A110 racks up seven prestigious UK awards in 12 months

Alpine has been presented with the Sports Car of the Year title by leading automotive magazine What Car?. The prestigious title was presented at the annual What Car? Awards that took place this evening at the Grosvenor Hotel in central London.

A110 triumphs
The team at What Car? magazine thoroughly test every car that’s on sale in the UK. The magazine’s road testers drove the Alpine A110 in Pure specification and were impressed by the car’s dynamic ability and its usability.

Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor, said: “Alpine may have lain dormant since 1995, but the reborn A110 is a real triumph. By focusing on engagement over maximum power, it’s a car that involves its driver at sensible speeds and betters all its rivals.”

Sébastien Erphelin, Managing Director, Alpine said: “We’ve received some prestigious awards since the launch of the Alpine A110 and I have to confess it is always the same rewarding emotion for the Alpine team whenever we get the news. This award from What Car? is a real source of pride and I’d like to share it with our British customers and dealer network.”
