To find one of the 818 Alpine A610s produced is rare and from first hand is exceptional.

Owned by a former Alpine factory driver; Jean de Alexandris, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

In fact, Jean de Alexandris, winner of the 1968 Morocco Rally with Jean-Pierre Nicolas, member of the Alpine team when it was the 1973 World Rally Champion, but also a talented co-driver of Jean Guichet and Jean-François Piot, could not help but place an order for the A610 in Dieppe when it was unveiled in 1991. Obviously, very close to the brand, he could benefit from some modifications done by the factory: possibility of disconnecting the ABS by a small button under the dashboard, suppression of the air conditioning, or increase of 0.3 bars of pressure to the turbo "in order to leave the Porsches in the rear view mirror"!

Electric blue in colour with a draped interior, the speedometer was replaced in 2016 at 47,821 km as confirmed by a document included in the file and it has driven 1,335 km since then. The bodywork has been repainted and is in used condition, whilst the interior is well preserved. All four rims are new and fitted with Pirelli P-Zero tyres.
With its clear history, exceptional provenance and lovely condition, this rare A610 bears the signature of Jean-Pierre Nicolas and Jean de Alexandris on the roof: a true collector's item.

The vehicle is in very good condition, both inside and out, mechanically and in terms of the chassis.

All electrical and mechanical functions work (headlights, alarm, radio, CB, power windows, braking, gearbox, speedometer, etc.).
The seats, carpets, rugs, dashboard, headliner and doors are in very good condition.

The only disadvantages that can be found are small impacts of gravel on the bodywork, due to the vehicle's use on the road.

This Alpine can be viewed in Kehl.
