Alpine once again hit the middle of the target and impressed collectors around the world. After a famous and historic appearance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where they even achieved overall victory in 1978, the French have decided to celebrate their past and future participation in this world-famous race with a unique edition of the A110 R model, called the 'Le Mans Edition'. Not only have they designed a car that pays homage to its roots, but they have also managed to avoid the pitfalls of excessive sentimentality.

Looking at Alpine A110 R Le Mans Edition you quickly notice that it is something special. The Le Mans edition brings aesthetic changes in the form of a white body with blue accents, including a double stripe that runs the length of the body. Matching wing end caps and wheel trim are added, while the rear deck gets a more prominent central stabilizer bar. This, as Alpine says, is a tribute A480 racing car. Le Mans badges have also been added to the front spoilers, door sills and headrests. The sun visor is laser-engraved with the outline of the racetrack, and the plaque bears witness to the fact that it is going for one in 100 cars.

The existing suspension settings are also redesigned compared to the standard model.
