Alpine A 110: My second stage of improvements is done.

Avatar
amanico
I will basically have four stages. The first stage, I already reported, was about the chassis, mainly: I put the Chassis of the S version in my Legende: Bigger anti roll bars, stiffer suspensions, new light rims, different geometry settings, and some other delicacies, such as a light lithium battery... The second stage is more mechanical: four changes have just been made, in July: - A titanium exhaust, which has a superb sound ( 89 Db with the closed valves, 102 Db with the open valves ), which is very nice ... ...Story

As I told you, I planned some modification stages on my alpine A 110. Not that I am not happy with it, it is just that I want to make it even better and more enjoyable on the road and, occasionally, on tracks. So, the first stage was about improvements on the chassis, with some extra things. - The Chassis: First of all, the anti roll bars ...Story

Alpine A 110: My final choice. An introduction to my car.

Avatar

In total transparency, I have to confess that I knew, since the first test drive in September that I will have an Alpine A 110. The questions were when, as I had to find the funds and I was a bit limited on that matter, and which one I would choose. As for the funds question, I could opt for a car I would configure, with the fundamental options, or one with a very low mileage. Both options were totally valid...Story

We recently discussed the re interpretation of the Volvo P 1800 by Cyan or the modern alpine A 110. But it seems that is a new trend. Here are some examples which are with some discussions and thoughts. The 911 DLS by Singer is one of the most famous: What about the 914 by Fifteen Eleven? It is an electric one, at the contrary of the Singer...Story

Alpine A 110. Some thoughts.

Avatar
amanico
The Alpine Renault A 110 is one of these cars which are part of the Automotive Legends, and not only for the French People. Born in 1962, and produced for 16 years, this sportscar à la française attended some famous Rallyes, such as the Monte Carlo, and was a winner. It was made in a bit more than 7000 pieces. The recipe was simple: An ordinary motor, from Renault, and a light body, a bit like what Lotus did...Story

A day on the track with the Alpine A 110.

Avatar

I was invited by an Alpine Authorized Dealer to test the Alpine on the track. I already tested it on the small roads of Normandy, and on the highway, too, I had to go farther and have some fun on the track to test its limits, and to get some notions on how to pilot a car on a track, too. We had an appointment at 9.00 AM, and I arrived a bit earlier, the Volvo C 70 T5 being a pretty fast car. The first surprise? The cars in presence...Story

Time flies... I have the feeling it was yesterday, the day I picked my Volvo P 1800E near Amsterdam, on the 21st of September 2012. Since then, I have made 50 000 Kilometers with it. I went to Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Belgium, and the Netherlands with it...Story
