Alpine, the erstwhile French marque resurrected recently under parent company Renault, is making its Singapore debut under luxury car retailer Wearnes Automotive.
It will be the tenth brand added to Wearnes’ stable.
Alpine (pronounced al-peen), will launch with just one model, the all-new A110.
Word on the street is that the mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive A110 coupe is currently undergoing homologation for Singapore’s roads.
The A110 will be debuting at the Singapore Motorshow, which will run from Jan 10 to 13, 2019.
Alpine’s showroom will be at 45 Leng Kee Road, next to Wearne’s current crop of luxury car showrooms.
According to Wearnes, the facility will be part of the new eight-storey Automotive Centre, slated for completed in the first quarter of 2019.
The centre will house rare and vintage car collections, Wearnes said.
Wearnes Automotive’s managing director Victor Kwan said he was confident the brand’s “highly anticipated rebirth will provide a “fresh and rewarding alternative” to satisfy motoring purists.
According to Wearnes, the A110 has had more than 5,000 global reservations.
Established in 1955, Alpine has won a string of victories in international motorsport events.
The manufacturer won overall victory in the 1978 24 Hours of Le Mans, and clinched the team title in the 1973 FIA World Rally Championship.
