ALPINE is to produce a limited edition of its new A110 R sports car just days after revealing the model.

Just 32 versions of the Fernando Alsonso special will be produced - one for each of the Spanish driver's Formula 1 victories.

With input from the two-times World Champion, the car is available exclusively with the Racing Matte Blue as used on Alpine's Formula 1 A522.

The front and rear carbon-fibre bonnet are partially painted, respectively with the same Racing Matte Blue and the Deep Black used for the body, while they have an entirely carbon-fibre finish on the A110 R.

The car's rear is darker, with a marked graphic design with the rear shield black, and the spoiler support columns anodized black.

The orange brake callipers are a nod to Fernando Alonso's historic colours.

Details such as the grey edges on the rims, the blue-orange-yellow flag on the rear quarter windows in the driver's trademark colours, and the varnish protected ‘Fernando Alonso' signature, reflect the unique collaboration while giving an additional feel of exclusivity.

There's also Fernando Alonso's signature embroidered into the seats, along with a blue-orange-yellow flag on the door panels,

A quote that represents the driver's philosophy has been laser-cut into the sun visor reading:"There is more than one path to the top of the mountain".

The Fernando Alonso A110 R limited series features a unique adjustment system to change the height of the body, as well as the stiffness of the suspension.

A shim placed at the base of the spring means the spring's position can be changed and the vehicle lowered by 10mm for track-only use. At the same time, the stiffness of the suspension is increased by five per cent.

An Alpine-patented innovation, it will give enthusiasts ready access to track settings approved by Fernando Alonso himself on Barcelona's F1 circuit.

Each model has an engraved plaque located on the centre console which bears the name of both the circuit and year of a victory race belonging to the two-time world champion.

Numbered from one to 32, in chronological order, the tribute plaques add an extra layer of exclusivity that is sure to delight enthusiasts.

Buyers of the limited series model will be given a Fernando Alonso replica racing helmet, signed by the two-time world champion himself.

At the moment, there is no indication of the price of the special edition - or of the A110 R itself.
