French Police Order 26 Alpine A110 Mid-Engine Sports Cars

The world will never run out of supercar police cars . It must be admitted that Dubai has a police fleet with capable supercars .

While other countries have their own entries to reflect their heritage, such as the Japanese Nissan GT-R police car .

In some cases, the Italian Lamborghini Huracan police car , apart from chasing criminals, also doubles as a savior.

The latest addition to the car segment in this line of civilian duty is the Alpine A110. Although not the first time, this latest news comes from France.

Yup, the French police ordered 26 units of the Alpine A110 mid-engine sports car. So don't mess around while driving in France or you'll be chased by an Alpine A110 with its siren screaming loudly.

Regarding the order for 26 Alpine A110 units for the French police, the French Ministry of the Interior conveyed its message in a press release:

  • Following the call made in June 2021, the Ministry of Home Affairs will obtain a rapid intervention vehicle for the National Gendarmerie.
  • The company Renault won a contract with the Alpine A110 Pure model for 4 years with a total order of 26 units. The contract was delivered on October 11.

The 26 Alpine A110 units will be used by the National Gendarmerie.

For the uninitiated, the Gendarmerie is the French police force responsible for maintaining security and order in small towns and rural areas with a population of less than 20,000 people.

While on the other hand, the Police Nationale is in charge of Paris and other urban areas.

The rendering above depicts what the upcoming A110 police car will look like, which Durisotti was commissioned to customize.

The French Interior Ministry stated that the A110 units would be used to intervene on highways, involving high-speed cars, as part of a road safety mission.

The Alpine A110 is a lightweight sports car, powered by a turbocharged 1.8-liter engine that produces 249 horsepower (185 kilowatts) and 236 pound-feet (320 Newton-meters) of torque.

A renowned British petrolhead, James May, calls the Alpine A110 a downsized supercar for several valid reasons.

For the price, the Alpine A110 sells for 58,400 euros (about Rp974 million at current exchange rates).
