Shortly after debuting the new 2021 LÉGENDE GT version of its A110 sportscar, French automaker Alpine has now tapped Argentine-Spanish artist Felipe Pantone for a trio of hand-painted A110S cars that were unveiled at last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.

Taking on the artist’s iconic visually stunning graphics, the art cars provide a black backdrop for Pantone’s red, blue and white pixelated patterning as a nod to the automaker’s French heritage. The color scheme is largely reminiscent of the Alpine Formula 1 team’s winter livery during pre-season testing and creates a visual representation of speed.

“My idea regarding the work on the A110 is to evoke a sense of ‘ultradynamism’,” explains Pantone about the concept behind his design. “Visual speed is something that I have been investigating for years now and that I feel it really comes together on this car, emphasizing its brilliant design with a fast, technological look.” The artist’s website further describes the creation as  ”a collision between an analog past and a digitized future, where human beings and machines will inevitably glitch alongside one another in a prism of neon gradients, geometric shapes, optical patterns, and jagged grids.”

If you’re interested in this artistic take on Alpine’s A110S, three of the cars will be sold for roughly $152,000 USD each, marking a $75,000 USD premium over the regular model.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Elon Musk says that the new Tesla Roadster can make 0-60mph in just 1.1 seconds.
