The Alpine A120 limited edition model is exclusive and is now available for pre-order.
The sports car brand which is getting back into action with this supercar announced that the coupes are now open for purchase.
The announcement came as a surprise as Alpine said that buyers will be able to get it through a smartphone app available on iOS and Android devices. While many car manufacturers do allow pre-orders done through apps, this could probably be the first time an auto company wants to take this unconventional route for their comeback. Not many brands would opt to isolate themselves with app only pre-orders but Alpine took the plunge.
The A120 Premiere Edition will be limited in numbers, as confirmed by the manufacturer. Just 1,995 models will be available and the mid-engine sports car look as stylishly sleek as it could. The model is available in different parts of Europe now and is expected to be rolled to other regions in the following months. There is still no confirmation on when or if the Alpine A120 will be available in US or Australia. The car’s initial payment costs about $2,900 and when it is ready for delivery, you have to pay the full price of $79,000 for the entry level model. The next trimline will set you back by $86,000.
Following the success of the classic A110 model, Alpine has decided to name the new car A120. The concept model was previewed for the first time during the auto show this February. The powertrain used in the model remains a mystery at the moment but we do know that the powerful supercar will be able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds. An earlier report claimed the car will use a 1.8-liter 185kW version motor but it is purely a speculation and the model may use a completely different powertrain.
Alpine A120 can now be pre-ordered if you live in Italy, Germany, France, Australia, Luxemborg, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom. The car is about to get launched in Japan as well in the first half of 2017. Due to production constraints, the left hand drive variant of the car will be available in 2017 while the right handed edition is set for 2018. It does indicate a possible U.S. launch in a year’s time but not confirmed officially yet.
