Alpine A110 Art Car: Transformation Showcase

Arne Quinze’s Belgian Creation

Alpine, a brand with big ambitions for the future, is showcasing its vision of the automobile of tomorrow with the A110 Metamorphosis sculpture by Belgian artist Arne Quinze. According to the automaker’s announcement, the sculpture expresses “the concept of a dreamed future of the automobile and organic forms in the service of technology.” This impressive display can be seen at the esplanade of the Grand Palais Éphémère in Paris, France, from March 30 through April 2, as Alpine looks ahead to introducing electric SUVs.

This sculpture portrays a seemingly levitating Alpine A110 constructed from aluminum. Adding to the art’s spectacular visuals, moving lights of multi-hued shades are present. Swooping structures with multiple gaps streaming from below through the vehicle before exiting from its summit finalize the creation.

Quinze’s ambition behind this sculptural piece is to exemplify the interconnection between technology and the environment. The forms highlight a sculpture of assertive organic characteristics.

The Metamorphosis is substantially more flamboyant than what Alpine brought to last year’s event – the artist collective Obvious’ Sastruga, which featured a body wrap for the A110 that was generated by artificial intelligence.

Alpine reported record sales of 3,546 vehicles for the year 2022, a 33 percent surge from the preceding year. Their current product range is represented solely by their A110 and its variants. Their plans to increase their selection include fabricating a high-powered version of the Renault 5 electric vehicle, followed by the introduction of an electric edition of the A110 as well as a GT X-Over crossover.

Alpine intends to launch two electric SUVs in 2027 and 2028 and possibly bring them to America. Contending with Porsche’s Macan and Cayenne, which have also embraced electrification, the vehicles would be their targets.
