Renault Alpine A 110 1300 with wide body extensively restored ex works appraisal grade 2 (1974)
|Renault||Alpine A 110 1300 VC||1974|
Jean Rédelé, the son of a French Renault dealer, created a sporty car based on the legendary 4CV for the first time in the early 50s, which immediately aroused the interest of the trade press. Rédelé soon thought about small-scale production and had no idea that the automobiles modified under his direction under the Alpine brand name would soon become a permanent fixture on the sports car market. With the debut of the Alpine A110 in the early 60s, the big breakthrough came: This automobile, which was just over 1,100 mm high, received an interestingly styled plastic body and was based on the technology of the Renault 8.
General information about the vehicle:
An Alpine A110 from the first registration in 1974 - of which there were only 18 units in this model version offered here, according to the seller - can now be purchased in this auction. The French sports car comes from 2nd hand and ran in Austria, the so-called matching numbers are assumed. Although there is no longer a checkbook for the car, the current owner of the sports car states that the mileage is approximately comprehensible. This Alpine has a valid Austrian inspection until January 2024, it is not yet in possession of a historic registration.
In terms of paintwork, this Alpine shines in the motorsport color of the French - namely blue. A distinctive feature of this A110 are the wide fenders, which give the sports car a powerful appearance. Cibie auxiliary headlights at the front not only provide more rally looks, but also more illumination when driving at night. All add-on parts are obviously in good condition on the body and all chrome parts on the car apparently still shine as they should. After consultation with the owner, it was announced that this Alpine is repaint-free and accident-free and that gross damage to the exterior cannot be mentioned.
Together with tires from the Toyo brand - which, according to DOT, date from 2019/2020 and only recently came onto the French sports car - 13-inch Gotti alloy wheels provide the further visual appearance of the vehicle. The seller certifies that the brakes have a condition assessment of 70-90% and, according to him, there are no inconsistencies in the area of the chassis.
Pure rally can be felt in the interior of the Alpine with bucket seats, H-belts and a silver roll bar: The dashboard covered with Alcantara and the interior carpet with rhombus pattern and blue decorative stitching are sporty, luxurious. The perforated 3-spoke Alcantara steering wheel, which has a blue 12 o'clock marking, is extremely grippy. The equipment on board the Alpine A110 includes, among other things, a retro radio. According to the seller, there are no major signs of wear in the interior. In order to convince yourself of the many details, the equipment features and the general condition in the interior of the Alpine, we recommend reviewing the meaningful series of pictures of this vehicle.
Green numbers and hands can be seen in the Alpine's round instruments: The 5-digit speedometer shows a mileage of approx. 79,997 kilometers. All instruments work perfectly and the total mileage of the car can be partially traced, according to the seller.
According to the seller, the water-cooled in-line four-cylinder in the rear of this A110, which comes from Renault, produces 97 hp. The power of the 4 cylinders is transmitted to the rear axle via a manual gearbox. After consultation, a last service last took place in August 2022.
The underbody of this A110 can be described as very good in terms of condition - there are apparently no gross inconsistencies or rust spots. Flat, fast, manoeuvrable, light: these 4 characteristics probably describe an Alpine A110 most succinctly. According to the seller, this French sports car offered here is a vehicle in which everything is typified - in addition, the seller further states that there were only 18 pieces of this Alpine model and that the vehicle is a corresponding rarity.
