The range of the French sports coupé is enhanced with a new special series: the Alpine A110 Tour de Corse 75 pays homage to the model of yesteryear, entered in the 1975 Tour de Corse.
Launched in 2017, the contemporary version of the Alpine A110 is quietly pursuing its career, with many special editions being added to its catalog. After a special series paying tribute to its founder Jean Rédélé, here is the new Alpine A110 Tour de Corse 75 : as its name suggests, it pays homage to the mythical Alpine-Renault A110 number 7 which participated in the 1975 edition of the Tour de Corse, the rally of 10,000 bends.
This 1975 edition of the Tour de Corse was symbolic, because it really highlighted the Dieppe brand: more than twenty berlinettas were entered by private crews, while the official Alpine-Renault crews were represented by four cars: two A310s and two A110s. After a fierce battle between the number 7 Alpine A110 of Jean-Pierre Nicolas and the number 6 Lancia Stratos HF of Bernard Darniche, it was the latter which won the victory, with a lead of just 32 seconds.

The Alpine A110 Tour de Corse 75 highlights the passion for motorsport, with a two-tone livery unprecedented, inspired by the A110 n°7 of the Tour de Corse 1975. Its yellow bodywork contrasts with a “Deep” black bonnet and roof, and the whole is completed by black and white graphic elements, which are found on the sides and the rear bumper, but also with a white border surrounding the bonnet.
The set is completed by white rims 18-inch “Grand Prix”, orange Brembo brake calipers, as well as “Tour de Corse 75” stickers next to the brand emblem on the front fenders. At the rear, the white and black striping subtly draws the number 7, in homage to the number of the berlinetta of yesteryear.
