Alpine Renault A110 1600 S – 1972

Success never comes by chance. The hundreds of victories accumulated by the Berlinette Alpine in regional, national and international rallies were the result of the skills that the team led by Jean Rédélé were able to put into practice. Even if it doesn’t have a phenomenal power, the lightness and rigidity of its backbone chassis and its plastic body work wonders on winding roads, where it delighted many amateur and professional pilots!

Launched in 1961 as the A 108, the Berlinette Alpine never stopped evolving. In 1962, at the Salon de Paris, it became the A110 and it reached its aesthetic peak in 1968 with its long-range headlamps, its wider rear fenders and its air intakes in the rear fenders. Compact, sporty and elegant, it also benefited from constant technical improvements. After the 1100 and then the 1300 engine borrowed from the R8 Gordini, it was equipped with the 1600 engine of the Renault 16 TS, which gave it more torque. Its five-speed gearbox and disc brakes made it remarkably smooth. Moreover, its Renault mechanics, derived from the series, made it a relatively simple car to maintain and an economical car to use. Nowadays, it’s the most emblematic French sports cars of the 1960s/1970s and by far the most successful one in rally sports.

This Alpine A110 is one of the 1600 S models, the most sought-after model, which won the first World Championship of Rally. Its 1565 cc engine generates 138 hp SAE. 7 It is equipped with two Weber 40 carburettors, bucket seats and additional long-range headlights. It rests on beautiful Gotti light-alloy wheels. Entirely restored in Holland, this car in perfect condition.
