- An iconic Model

Success never comes by chance. Hundreds of victories earned by the Alpine berlinetta are thanks to the qualities that were implemented by team leader Jean Rédélé. Without being very powerful, lightness in weight and stiffness provided by its backbone chassis and its body in fiberglass worked wonders for twisty roads. The design's aesthetic culmination came in 1968 with additional lamps, wider rear fenders and scoops. Purposeful, sporty and elegant, the Alpine was powered by the 1100 and 1300 engines from the Renault R8 Gordini and the 1600 engine from the Renault 16 TS, which brought more torque into the equation. This car is, without doubt, the most iconic of all sporting French cars from the 1960s and 1970s, and by far the most successful in rallying.
As stated in the certificate attached to the Alpine's file, the car we are offering is a A110 1600 S that left the factory on April 22, 1972. The car entered the Albert Prost collection in October 1999 and since then has undergone a restoration in detail, as shown in a file of photos made on this occasion. The car is complete and healthy, and everything has been redone in the workshops of EFJIE Distribution, in Blois: mechanicals, running gears, bodywork, electrics... This berlinetta has hardly been driven since its restoration as it had 69,840km before the restoration and now it shows just 73,502km. It comes equipped with a roll cage, Gotti rims, Cibié long range headlamps and a hydraulic handbrake. Having hardly been used, it needs to be serviced. This is a fine example of a very desirabl A110 Berlinetta unmodified, in its purest and most desirable version, well restored. It is not so common to find on the market a berlinetta of this quality, a car that will not only provide driving pleasure, but be eligible for many historic events too.
