Alpine A110 gunning for Porsche 718 in Australia


There are limitations to the A110’s pursuit of Porsche, though. For one, volume will be limited. Very limited. As in, extremely limited.

An initial allocation of 60 A110 Premiere Editions are headed for our shores, of which 32 are already sold, while a further 100 cars are likely to get here in 2019.

Brighton Renault will be the only Alpine dealer from launch, with a second site in Sydney likely to follow, limiting the A110’s initial reach. Don’t get too upset, though: apparently we’re lucky to be getting the car at all.

“We’re pretty lucky that we’re actually able to bring the vehicle in,” Moore explained.

“There’s plenty of countries that aren’t getting it, so we were pretty lucky that the lobbying was done, and that the guy that actually runs the sales arm… has had a history in Australia,” he went on.

“We probably got a little bit of a leg up to get the vehicles in.”
