The teaser photos reveal the seats for A120 come as a one-piece design, with super lightweight personality. The seats weigh about just 13.1kg, which is about 2.6kg in excess with the weight of the McLaren P1's seats.
The photos also detail the bold side bolsters of the seats. This design suggests a dominant lateral grip, which also points to the sports car's cornering abilities. In addition, the new seats can be seen with quilted leather.
According to CarBuyer, Alpine has emphasized that the upcoming sports car will satisfy users by providing comfortable and lightweight features. Alpine stressed that they did not allow anything to sacrifice performance, weight and driver's comfort.
Meanwhile, the upcoming A120 offers outstanding aerodynamics. The new sports car has the rear diffuser and new flat floor which are the major components to support the aerodynamics.
The French automaker already began accepting early bookings for this new sports car. Only 1,955 units were initially offered for the advance bookings. This Premiere Edition is available in three color variants: blue, white and black.
Those who are interested may deposit around $2,150 (€2,000) to secure one unit from the limited 1,955 units. The early booking may be done via the automaker's smartphone app.
With the previously reported outstanding aerodynamics of the upcoming sports car, and the latest teased impressive seats, the upcoming Alpine A120 has surely captivated the hearts of many car enthusiasts.
