Description

The beautiful design of the Alpine Renault ‘berlinettes’ and their extraordinary performances in competition made them the cars to beat in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This book brings to life the efforts, successes and failures of the engineers and drivers that worked with the cars, and explores the berlinettes’ development and history in fascinating detail.
Synopsis

The berlinettes were fragile, beautifully designed, lightweight road rockets. For the first time, Alpine Renault enthusiasts around the world can read the complete history of them in English.
This book is not just for owners of Alpine Renaults, but for all those interested in rallying and its spectacular period of rapid development in the late 1960s and early '70s. Hear from the men who built the cars, some of the great drivers who became famous driving them, the team manager, the Redele family – creators of the car – and the mechanics who kept the cars going. The story covers the concept, the first cars, the early road cars, and their entry into competition on the European rallying circuit, with full charted documentary details.
The Alpine A110 berlinette was a car born to compete, born to win. This is its story.
Additional Information

Covers the period 1953-1978, and Alpines A106, A108, and A110.
