Description

The Alpine A610 was a coupe automobile produced by the Renault-owned French manufacturer Alpine. It was launched in 1991. Due to a limited budget at the beginning of the project, its appearance does not differ much from the GTA, and it looks quite similar to the USA GTA with its pop-up headlights (this was believed to be because the Alpine, when viewed head-on, strongly resembled mid-80s versions of the Ford Sierra; but the actual reason for that and for the batteries to be in the front was to better balance the weight between the front and the back). Nonetheless it is a completely different car, sharing only the windows with the GTA. The basic concepts of all Alpine cars are there (e.g. the rear engine, and the steel backbone chassis that all Alpines since the A110 have had). The car was solely branded as an Alpine, as linking Alpine and Renault together (first as Alpine-Renault then Renault-Alpine) seemed to detract from the Alpine brand’s sporty image. The PRV engine remained, but it was enlarged to 3 litres, which enabled it to produce 250 PS (184 kW; 247 hp) and 350 N·m (260 lb·ft) of torque.

The A610 was to be the last car so far to carry the Alpine name; after production of the A610 ended, the Alpine factory in Dieppe produced the Renault Spider, that we also have in our stock!

This particular example was supplied on the 15th of November 1993 by the Spanish Renault Mérida in Badajoz from Spain. Finished in “Jaune” (Alpine) showing 41,800 km on the odometer, this car has been well looked after and maintained.

A lovely example of a Renault Alpine, a true thoroughbred A610 Turbo that faithfully encapsulates the pure Renault Alpine driving experience, with a total production of 751 (LHD) units.
