First registration 07.1972
Swiss road registration with veteran entry
The Alpine A110 is a sports car of the French car manufacturer Alpine, which was produced from 1962 to 1977. It was created as a further development of the A108 Berlinette and was used successfully for many years in international racing and rallying. The most famous successes are the victories in the Monte Carlo Rally, winning the European Rally Championship and winning the World Rally Championship in 1971 and 1973.
The Alpine A110 Berlinette is the most famous model. It was presented to the public in Paris in 1962 with the additional designation “Tour de France”. At that time, the car was still marketed exclusively as Alpine, without the “Renault” suffix, as Renault did not buy the independent automaker in stages until the 1970s.
The body of the A110 Berlinette was revised in details several times between 1962 and 1977. The technology was also constantly developed and revised. The early versions of the Alpine A110 Berlinette (1962-1967) did not yet have the typical twin headlights; these did not become standard equipment until 1967. There was also a widened racing version of the A110 Berlinette ex works from 1970.
The Alpine A110 Berlinette was offered with different four-cylinder engines. The first cars received the engine of the Renault 8, which was later optimized by Gordini. Versions corresponding to the factory cars used in racing were also available as road versions. Since the cars were hand-built to customer specifications, there are individual differences between the cars right out of the factory.
According to the Alpine A110 Register, the Renault Alpine A110 offered here was delivered in 1972 as 1600 S in Belgium. From the 1600 it was upgraded to 1800 in that time. According to the same register the car has a long racing history, which unfortunately we cannot prove. From Belgium the car went to Luxembourg and was imported to Switzerland in 2009, where it was in the same ownership until 2022.
