Alpine A110 Sportsx concept revealed

The Alpine A110 Sportsx concept has been unveiled at the International Automobile Festival, at the Invalides complex, alongside a selection of cars from the brand's past. Said to be inspired by the A110 race car which won the 1973 Monte Carlo rally, the Sportsx has a jacked up suspension package for 60mm of extra ground clearance. Thanks to a broader track and extended wheel arches, the body of the Sportsx is 80mm wider than run-of-the-mill versions of the A110.
