Thinking of 1970s supercars, the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati instantly come to mind. While those Italian purebreds may be superior cruising down the Autostradas at triple-digit speeds, they are less fun to drive on twisty backcountry roads.
While an early Porsche 911 is a great sports car and a wonderful car for such duties, it's not a supercar. To find one of those, we'd have to travel to France, the birthplace of the fantastique Renault Alpine A310.
A contemporary of the Lancia Stratos, the esoteric Alpine A 310 is a featherweight road rocket that prevailed in many of the most grueling road rallys all over the world. In 1977, an A 310 even won the French Rallye Championship against the most scary-looking "Group B" competitors, nicknamed the "Killer Bees," which ultimately were outlawed.
Very few of these Alpine supercars have made it over to the New World. According to the literature included with the car, only one 1977 A310 is known to live in the United States today: this one.
Built in 1976 and titled as a 1977 model, VIN * 43095 * was legally imported to the U.S. more than a decade a go and has been in the care of loving aficionados ever since. Mileage shown on the odometer is 57,635 Kilometers, which converts to 34,930 miles. After inspecting the car and studying the accompanying car file, we believe this to be the original mileage of this car.
A veritable mountain of documents come with the car. There are service records, receipts of parts purchases, shop manuals, spare parts catalogues, club newsletters, and volumes of correspondence between the owners and various mechanics and vendors. To claim this Alpine to always have received the best of care would be an understatement!
Alpine's beautiful coachwork looks original and unmodified. The car may have been repainted once, in its original color. Although there are numerous paint blems, such as chips and small cracks in the area of fenders and front bumper--typical of these light GRP bodies--the car still attracts admiring looks and favorable comments all the time.
What really makes this fine example stand out in any car show crowd is the rare N.O.S. decal set, obtained directly from France. Large "Alpine" crest and red, gray, and blue stripes look phenomenal on the virginal white background.
A very desirable period option, genuine GOTTI lightweight aluminum wheels have been polished to a chrome-like luster and are fitted with fantastic YOKOHAMA AVS super high performance tires of the dimension 205/60-13V.
If you often wondered how low you can go, look no further than the Alpine. On par with Lamborghini's Miura, the Alpine's roof hits a mere 47 inches at its highest point!
