Comment from Shuhei Miyabe, Brand Director, Negroni
We are very pleased to announce the reopening of the dream-like customization program called "Atelier Alpine" as well as the launch of a collaborative model between Alpine and Negroni.
I first saw the new Alpine A110 in person at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK. I was exhibiting the Negroni store stand at FoS just that year, and I was more than happy to stroll around the venue on the first day, when it was still empty, which meant press day. An unfamiliar sports car design was on display in the large Renault pavilion. It took me a while to realize that it was a modern reincarnation of the Alpine A110, despite the number plate that read "A110" and "PREMIÈRE ÉDITION" and the wheels with the A emblem logo. I had no idea that I would be the first to see the actual car that had just premiered at the Geneva Show that year. Looking back, I was probably one of the first Japanese to see the A110.
With such good fortune, the process of coming up with the idea for this collaboration project between Negroni and Alpine was unprecedentedly "smooth". When we received the offer, we had already studied the color chart for the Alpine A110, so we didn't need any special time to crosscheck the Alpine color chart with the Negroni color chart. I believe that the collaborative model "SPH-G20 A1" brings out the performance of the Alpine A110, while at the same time creating a style that can be used in a balanced manner in one's lifestyle. We have put a lot of thought into even the smallest details, so we hope you will take a look at it in person."
