If you don't own a Formula 1 car, you can get behind the wheel of a car developed by a famous driver.
This is Alpine's proposal for its A110 R Fernando Alonso, limited to 32 copies.
Inevitably, for those who follow a little motorsport, today's event makes a smile: Alpine presents a limited edition of its latest A110R named Fernando Alonso. Ironically, as the two-time F1 world champion just knocked on the French team's door a few weeks ago.
While he wanted to renew his contract for two years, Alpine F1 reportedly refused him, on the pretext of a somewhat advanced age (41 years), offering him one year with an option for a second year. Almost an insult, for the temperamental Fernando, who also decided to reclaim the vacancy of the soon-retired Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin! Still, this special edition of the A110R, in the name of the Spaniard, is a potential collector.

Limited to 32 examples, like Alonso's number of premier-class victories, it takes the radical A110R base revealed two days ago by adding a little coquetry. More specifically, the ground connections have been refined to make it an even sharper blade in the circuit.
The French company specifies that it has developed a system that allows adjusting the height of the body and the stiffness of the suspension springs without having to lift the car on a bridge. A system patented for the occasion. On the other hand, no changes made to the 1.8 turbo whose power has increased to 300 hp could not be greater given the space dedicated to it.
That said, with less than a ton on the balance, this Frenchwoman promises great sports sessions for those who can afford it. Each copy, numbered and with the name of the circuit and the year it won, was sold for €148,000. It's a high value that makes it the most expensive production A110 in history.
