Alpine : The Quest of Absolute Agility - by Gilles Uzan & Jean-luc Fournier & Monica Sabolo (Hardcover)
About this item
In a graphic and artistic extension of the new model A110, this handsome volume celebrates the revival of the epic Alpine sports car.A veritable dialogue between the Alpine A110 sports car and the artists and writers who pay homage to it through photographs, art, and text, this book captures the model’s sensual mechanics, masterful agility, and esprit de corps. The volume’s exquisite binding features an exposed spine with blue stitching and a diagonal laser-cut window on the front cover. The guiding force behind Jean Rédélé’s creation of the Alpine in 1955 was a love of the road and a passion for driving. Alpine’s story is punctuated by competitions and the thrilling driving experience of this renowned car that was named after the sinuous roads of the Alps. After two decades of slumber, Alpine—fortified by its legendary backstory—was revived as the model A110 in the fall of 2017. Rooted in history but decidedly turned toward the future, the new Alpine embodies higher performance, is more compact and agile than ever, and deftly combines ultra-contemporary design with classic French elegance.
