The Complete Story of the Alpine A110

Road & Track Logo Road & Track | Slide 1 of 5: The history of Alpine begins with this happy little bug. Like most Alpines that followed, the A106 was built almost entirely of workaday Renault parts. A 750cc engine, which made up to 43 "horsepower" (in race trim) was bolted in the back of a Renault 4CV sedan platform and topped with a fiberglass body that makes bystanders smile as if they’d just caught sight of a chubby puppy. The A106 was offered in one of the three colors of the French flag: blue, white, or red.
