Alpine A110 Légende GT and Color Edition: Two ends of the sports car spectrum

Renault's Alpine brand is launching a more luxurious version of its sleek A110 sports car as it looks to branch out from its core French market. Alpine's latest version of the A110 is the Légende GT, pictured in silver in the image gallery above. The GT model gets a bespoke interior that looks to be more luxurious and premium than other Alpine models. A new exhaust system and Brembo brake package join an improved audio system, backup camera and parking sensors, and a matching three-piece leather luggage set rounds out the package.

Its first production run will be limited to 400 cars, and prices will start at 69,300 euros ($77,100) — some 13,500 euros more than Alpine's most affordable models already in circulation.
