Alpine A110- 2018
The Alpine company was originally founded by Renault dealer and rally driver Jean Rédélé during the 1950s. The first Alpine A110 debuted in 1962 and became a successful race car, winning historic 1-2-3 finishes at the Monte Carlo Rally in 1971 and 1973. Unfortunately, public sales of the cars were slow and by 1973 Renault took over the company from Rédélé. Renault would continue Alpine production, and an A310 and an A610 to the lineup, attempting to compete with Porsche’s fame 911.
Renault ended the Alpine name in 1995, but in 2016 brought the name back as its own premium brand. Renault’s hope with this new Alpine brand is to compete in the high-end sports car market and achieve high profit margins for the company.
