Lot 203: Renault Alpine A110 1600 SX
Among the most distinctive and successful sports cars to be produced in post-War France, the Alpine A110 achieved myriad successes in all areas across motorsport throughout the 1960s and 1970s, numbering among its accomplishments a victory in the 1968 Tour des Alpes and 1,2,3 placings in the 1971 Monte Carlo Rally.
With such a heritage the car remains a formidable presence in the sport to this day.
Based on a design concept dating back to the mid 1950s the A110 followed the A108 in its use of a Fibreglass body over a tubular backbone chassis, providing a very robust and reliable car which, powered by the Gordini Renault engine, proved to be a most potent machine, and one widely regarded as 'France's 911'! The Alpine-Renault A110 1600 S is one of the rally legends of the 1970s: its Group IV variant won nearly every single rally from 1970 to 1973, achieving two constructor World Championship titles in 1971 and 1973.
This example was stripped down to its chassis and rebuilt in 1997; in 2012 the engine and gearbox were rebuilt, and further work included include fitting Weber carburettors, rally instruments, a heated screen, and a half roll cage for racing.
The car, having plainly been carefully prepared, comes with its FIA Carte d'Identite, and according to the enthusiast vendor is in very good condition.
