To celebrate Alpine’s entry into Formula 1, the French manufacturer of racing and sports cars joined forces with Felipe Pantone. Argentine-Spanish artist has garnished a 1/2 scale racing car with unique work of art inspired by motorsport. Combining digital patterns and classic design, and featuring the colors of the French flag, the model Pantone styled a tribute to Alpine’s destiny is exhibited on the first floor of the Atelier Renault. On the heels of the start of the Monaco F1 Grand Prix, Alpine unveils the second collaboration – an exceptional Alpine A110 designed by Felipe Pantone.
To create the artwork for the Alpine A110, the brand’s iconic model, Felipe Pantone spent long hours studying the brand, and its history. The artist even got behind the wheel of the French sports coupe to feel its unique personality. The result is a modern, dynamic and elegant interpretation of the A110 garnished with Pantone’s signature colors, black and white. The graphic lines follow the shape of the A110 and give an impression of speed even when the car stands still.
My idea regarding the work on the A110 is to evoke a sense of “ultradynamism”. Visual speed is something that I have been investigating for years now and that I feel it really comes together on this car, emphasizing it’s brilliant design with a fast, technological look. – Felipe Pantone
The paint job on the body was carried out entirely by hand by the artist. For even more exclusivity, each of the three models offered for sale will feature subtle graphic variations to make each of these A110s a unique piece.
Through this second collaboration with Alpine, Felipe Pantone once again demonstrates the extent of his talent. The creative work and its execution are exceptional. The color schemes, geometric shapes and optical effects reveal the A110 in a new light, with a heightened sense of movement. This work results in a modern, dynamic and captivating work of art. – Cédric Journel, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Alpine
This Alpine A110 designed by Felipe Pantone is based on an A110S, the most powerful version in the A110 range developing 292 horsepower. Each of the three special edition cars, that are approved for road circulation, will be on sale at a price of 125,000 euros including tax.
To reveal the result of this collaboration, Fernando Alonso got behind the wheel of the A110 x Felipe Pantone and took the artist for a hot lap session on the Monaco Grand Prix track. To celebrate this second collaboration, the Alpine F1 Team was wearing the colors of Felipe Pantone with typical graphic elements during the Monaco Grand Prix last weekend.
