Major attraction at the Geneva International Motor Show, the much awaited Alpine A110 will be equipped with Michelin tyres. All 1955 models of the Alpine will be fitted with the Pilot Sport 4. 1955, in reference to the year the first berlinette was launched.

High technology tyre

The Alpine, which has become a myth for motoring enthusiasts, needs tyres tailored to its requirements. With the Pilot Sport 4, Michelin takes up the challenge for a car which must combine a high level of sportiness in extreme driving conditions with agility when driven on a daily basis. This, while ensuring ride safety in wet conditions. A mission that should not be a problem for Michelin and its PS4 which has received an A-rating for wet grip on the EU tyre label. Indeed, the PS4 is the result of more than two years of development and 3,000 km of tests in Auvergne at the Michelin Technology Centre in Ladoux and at the Charade track, and on the Idiada track near Barcelona in Spain.

Return of an icon

No longer produced in the Dieppe factories, the Alpine A110 was initially presented in recent years as a concept car before officially rising from its ashes. In a newsletter at the end of last year, Renault released a teaser for its return. This is how fans of the brand found out about an application to reserve one of the 1955 models, even before the final version was revealed. The response was overwhelming since the models were snapped up within 72 hours, despite a price tag of 58 500€.

Delivery of the Alpine A110 Premiere Edition is planned for the end of 2017. It will be fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres, 205/40 ZR 18 86Y on the front and 235/40 ZR 18 95Y on the rear.
