Alpine A110 takes the colors of Berlinette No. 7 of the legend from the Tour de Corse in 1975. Limited edition cars of up to 150 cars can be booked in the Alpine program in France starting tomorrow June 17, starting at EUR 80,000 gross.

THE RALLY NOVEL REINTERPRETED

Inspired by the famous Alpine A110 that competed in the Tour de Corse in 1975, this new limited edition car has a classic design and an undeniably sporty cockpit. Designed for rallying, the Alpine A110 Tour de Corse 75 combines lightness and performance thanks to the chassis and the 300hp engine, which immerses passengers in the experience of the Tour de Corse, a rally of 10,000 turns.

The yellow exterior contrasts with the deep black of the bonnet and roof. The two-tone black and yellow graphic is complemented by a contrasting black and white graphic on the “Tour de Corse 75”. The “Tour de Corse 75” signature on the left front bumper is matched by the iconic door design, a white border on the hood and the number 7 painted in an undercut 7 on the rear, similar to the rally Berlinette of the time. The Sabelt® Racing bucket seats are decorated with the Tour de Corse 75 logo and can be fitted with sports stripes. Outside, the 18-inch white wheels are eye-catching Grand Prix and orange Brembo® brake calipers emphasize the competitive spirit of this limited edition.

Only 150 Alpine A110 Tour de Corse 75s will be built, of course with specific numbers from 1 to 150. This limited edition also includes Alpine’s new multimedia system with AndroidAuto ™ and Apple Carplay ™ connectivity. In France, it can be reserved in the Alpine program from Friday, June 17 at 9:00 am, starting at EUR 80,000.

HISTORY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

On the road, the limited edition A110 Tour de Corse 75 echoes the iconic car on the Corsican tarmac, as the exciting history of the 1975 edition can be felt behind the wheel of this limited edition.

Launched in 1956, the Tour de Corse is one of the most iconic events in motorsport, especially in rallies. In 1967, the event became part of the French Rally Championship, and in 1973 it became the country’s home round in the World Rally Championship. Two years later, 77 crews left for the Corsican tarmac, but only 22 finished the rally, which clearly shows the difficulty of the event as the 1975 edition was the scene of many surprises.

Two legendary models – Alpine A110 and Lancia Stratos HF – fought fiercely for victory, and everything had to be decided in a special final stage. While the A110 gained time, it was not much to win – the Alpine of Jean-Pierre Nicolas was 32 seconds off the top of the podium. But the war fell into history. Let’s add that seven teams using the Alpine-Renault A110 1800 finished the rally in the top ten, including – in seventh place – Michèle Mouton, later (1982) world runner-up in rallies. In 1982, Walter Röhrl became the champion, but that is a completely different story.
