Renault Alpine 310- 1985

{gallery}cars/renault_alpine_310_silver_1985_web{/gallery}

The 4 cylinder Renault Alpine 310 was launched in 1972. Some consider the Alpine one of France’s best kept secrets–it was a more practical and cheaper alternative to a Porsche 911. The v6 engine, introduced in 1976, allowed the a310 to rival the best sports cars in Europe. With a mid-engine layout and fiberglass monocoque chassis, this car is very light (1800 pounds) and quite fast. It was hand-manufactured by Alpine in Dieppe, France, and marketed through Renault dealers. This lightweight 2+2 sports car made its debut as a luxurious replacement for the world-renowned rally winner, the Alpine a-110. Jean Redele, the Alpine's creator, raced the Renault 4CV. He believed he could be more competitive by replacing the steel body with a lightweight aerodynamic fiberglass body. Thus, the original Alpine was born.
