Founded in 1955 by Jean Rédelé, the Dieppe brand Alpine has always known how to combine performance and the spirit of craftsmanship. From the start, its founder surrounded himself with passionate collaborators who were able, sometimes with a crying lack of resources, to express the best of themselves. Everyone’s efforts were devoted to the brand and it is thanks to their commitment and their extraordinary inventiveness that Alpine has been able to rise to the highest level.
The A110 berlinetta remains an undeniable myth, in the pantheon of many automobile enthusiasts. Each version thus has its aficionados. Some swear by the small A108, and its desirable convertible version, while for others, the A110 is the most intoxicating. Finally, let’s not forget the many lovers of more recent versions, such as the A310 or the A610.
We had the chance to drive the original berlinetta (in a classic road version, unprepared, with the 1300cc Gordini engine, as well as the A610 with the much-maligned and yet so pleasant V6 PRV). What good memories! We were also very touched when Renault asked us to take the wheel of the new Alpine A110 Légende.
