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 w

Suspension upgraded

A110 goes to 100 kph in 4,5 sec, you sit low to the ground, in a very light car ... so it feels even quicker. AND ... don't compare it to a Lotus or a Cayman, it's waay more comfy and sturdy than a Lotus and not as 'wiggly' like a Cayman/Boxster (unless i
