Alpine A110 South Beach is a vaporwave Miami tribute

Alpine honours Miami’s inaugural Formula One race with some vaporwave-inspired A110 South BEach specials.

The Formula One calendar includes a race in Miami for the first time ever this year, and to commemorate the event Alpine has designed some special colour options for its A110 sports car.

Available exclusively on the entry-level A110 model, Alpine says the new South Beach customisation pack is inspired by the city’ famous art deco buildings, neon lights of Miami’s Ocean Drive and the area’s colourful sunsets.

The new two exterior paint options are Bleu Azur (blue) and Rose Bruyère (pink) and they’re joined by 18-inch white ‘Serac’ alloy wheels.

Inside, the A110 features ‘South Beach’ floor mats trimmed in the same colour as the exterior paint work (depending on the buyer’s choice), while flags adorn both the exterior and interior.

The South Beach pack doesn’t affect the A110’s mechanical make-up, so it retains the recently faceifted model’s 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, producing 185Nm and 320Nm of torque.

This means an unchanged 0-100km/h time of 4.5 seconds and a 250km/h top speed. The kerbweight also remains the same at an impressively low 1086kg.

Alpine Australia has not been able to import and sell the A110 since November 2021 when new ADR rule changes meant the car did not meet new safety requirements, so the South Beach will not be making it here.
