We reported to you some time ago that the French motorway police had ordered 26 Alpine A110 sports cars. In the meantime, the first and second specially coated and modified samples arrived in one of the departments, which will be followed by 24 more samples in four years.
The authorities intend to use cars primarily to control and comply with motorway rules in France. The two vehicles will then be used to train members. Of course, they will also have beacons and a number of other special mods.

The French police continue a well-established tradition by renewing their collaboration with the Alpine brand, which belongs to the Renault group. Years ago, the original Alpine A110 was used by local gendarmes, for example, between 1966 and 1973. Among other things, the Renault Megane RS is still used by the highway police.
The new patrol cars in the hands of the French police have a standard 1.8-liter, 249-horsepower supercharged four-cylinder engine, which can accelerate the car from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds. The car has a maximum speed of 250 km / h. Among other things, Alpine has confirmed that in 2025 the A110 models will be replaced by their electric successors.
