UK Car of the Year judges have awarded the Alpine A110 the title of ‘Best Performance Car’. This latest accolade joins a host of coveted award wins that have been presented to Alpine for its A110 in the past 12 months and sits alongside the A110’s inclusion in the seven-car shortlist for the overall European Car of the Year 2019 award.

Performance Car
The judging panel was impressed by the cohesion of the Alpine A110 package. In particular, the lightweight design was credited for delivering an exciting driving experience.

Judge Alex Grant said: “There’s an art to reviving brands and heritage models with new technology, and the A110 hits the mark perfectly. Chic, lightweight and surprisingly compact, it’s rightly put Alpine back on the wish lists of enthusiasts across the UK. This is a classic in the making.”

Sébastien Erphelin, Managing Director, Alpine said: “It’s fantastic for the Alpine A110 to be recognised in this way by the UK Car of the Year jurors. To continue to receive such strong recognition for the qualities of the A110 in the UK and across Europe gives the whole team a tremendous amount of satisfaction.”
