Renault Alpine A110


Renault Alpine A110

The Alpine 110 started as a simple lightweight coupe and by sticking to that ideal, with a few tweaks, Renault topped rallying for 10 years. The low weight was partly due to a skinny, yet strong, chassis, made in alloy and using a single spine design with a subframe for the front suspension and more substantial cage for the drive train/suspension out back. Unequal length wishbones were used at the front in conjunction with coil-over-shocks, where the rear again used wishbones but with two coil-over-shocks per side because of the extra weight. Four wheel 10-inch (254mm) disc brakes ensured great stopping power. Because of the low production run, it was only ever produced in lightweight glass-fibre and with the small all-alloy hemi-chambered engine on twin Weber carburettors, was rapid through the bends. It won the World Rally Championship in both 1971 and 1973.
