Pics are fine dude....

Alpines are Rare as.
On one of Clarksons DVDs he rips the poor car to shreds... mainly because the steering locks randomly while hes driving, and he drives straight off the track hahahaha.


I dunno whether to hate or like these cars tbh. I adore the older Alpines (ones that used to rally). Looks in superb condition though happy

Same car - I think the fixed headlight car was the later one...

Only problem with them was that they where French.... underpowered and didnt handle frown

Hell yeah! Love em to bits. As previously stated the old ones are better but these are still cool.

Didnt they make an utterly dangerous turbo version?

The A610 is the turbo model wink

It came from the GTA which IIRC they did a 2.5 Turbo and 2.8 N/A

My bad from a previous post, the fixed headlight cars where the early GTA, adn the pop up light cars where the later, and faster (250bhp) A610's smile

Hey guys. That's my car. It is the last version of the Alpines, the A610 Turbo. This one is absolutely mint despite being on 120K miles. It is one of just 67 RHD models in the world and only 818 in total were ever produced. Jeremy Clarkson did indeed crash one but has since sent an apology to the Renault Alpine Owners Club (considering he put it into his top 100 cars of all time in 2002, it was a bit of a shock for him to do that but I guess in TV you do what pays!) and the steering lock problem was actually created by putting the remote equipment onto the car for crashing it, not a problem with the car itself. The car he crashed was widely regarded as one of, if not THE best in the UK. It was kept in a carpeted and heated garage and was a show winner :-(

The A610 had 250 bhp in standard form but mine has a de-cat stainless exhaust giving another 10% power. O-60 is 5.4 (bit slow I suppose in scoobyland!) and top speed is approx 170mph. The earlier GTA's were very similar but didn't have the pop-up headlights and were a more rounded shape and had a very fragile interior.

For a rare and pretty stunning looking car (especially in none too mellow yellow - the pics don't do it justice I don't think!!) it takes some beating and I certainly get some attention in it! The handling is amazing in the dry, less so in the wet but you expect that from a rear wheel drive car with a big engine slung over its back!
