French police reported a return to tradition. A few decades later, its members would roam local roads in alpine chariots. According to French media, the police have ordered 26 A110 Coupes, which will be used by members of the Brigade Intervention Brigade (BRI), which oversees French highways.
The BRI Brigade previously used some Alpine models, including the original 1960s A110, which is the inspiration for today’s coupe. The current generation should replace the powerful Renault Megane RS hatchback in the vehicle fleet, which has been serving the police since 2011.
Alpine Pure will service everything a proper police car should have, such as police decals, signs, a walkie-talkie and beacons. In order to catch anyone breaking the regulations, the car will have a standard 1.8-liter turbocharged rear-engined engine, which delivers 252 horsepower and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the Alpine A110 is set at 250 kilometers per hour.
In the future, police officers will not have to only 26 pieces. Alpine is also working on a car with a GT chassis and also a sports crossover. Then the police showed interest in both cars, with local police authorities ordering only French-made cars.
