The Alpine A110 Pure and Légende (next photo) have been taken up the hill climb at Goodwood
The Légende is identifiable by its blue paintwork; Alpine wanted the white of the Pure car to reflect its purity
It's not the only colour available on the Pure, but it's the most expressive of the car's focus on simplicity
Alpine will launch a more focused version of the A110 next month…
…as well as a more luxurious version
The lighter car will be called the Pure (and is painted white here)…
…while the more luxurious car is the Légende (painted grey here)
The two models will bookend the current A110 line-up
The Pure is priced from £46,905, while the Légende is priced from £50,805, meaning both sit in the price gap between the 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre versions of the Porsche 718 Cayman, which top out at £45,467 and start at £52,738 respectively.
The Pure (pictured in white) weighs just 1080kg, thanks to a pared-back specification that does away with unnecessary luxuries. Alpine says it retains the “minimalist approach” of the Première Édition but is more “driver-focused”. It has ditched heavier cabin materials in the Pure and used the lightest wheel option to minimise unsprung mass. Lightweight seats also form part of the diet.
