1962년 파리모터쇼를 통해 데뷔한 르노 오리지널 알피느 A110 고화질 사진들


Following in the tire tracks of the venerable A106 and A108, the A110 was also part of the fruitful partnership between Renault and Alpine, a guarantee of quality for enthusiasts and a promise of victory in competitions the world over.

 

A star is born

 

The Alpine A110 was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1962.  The new vehicle featured the steel backbone frame, glass-fiber polyester bodywork and offset rear-mounted engine of its illustrious predecessor. It also used parts from Renault production models, particularly the R8. It was thus a powerful and efficient model, featuring all the improvements made to Alpine models over the years. The Alpine A110 did, however, feature one innovation: the 4-cylinder Renault engine with 5 bearings. To make room for it, the rear end of the vehicle had to be made bigger. This gave the A110 an “aggressive” style that remained its hallmark.

 

Motorsports first and foremost

The A110 was a motorsports vehicle that was also available to amateur drivers looking for thrills. Even so, there was no question of adapting the new Alpine to urban or family use. Drivers, be they professionals or amateurs, had to shoehorn themselves into the minuscule cabin and squeeze their legs into the tunnel as best they could. Only then could they experience the joys of driving this lively sports model!

 

Success and more success

The A110 made its mark in international events right from its debut. In 1970, Alpine dropped endurance and Formula 3 racing to focus exclusively on road events. This proved to be the right decision. In 1973, the A110 was at the height of its powers, dominating the World Rally Championship in 8 events out of 13. It even notched up 2 one-two-three victories, at the Monte Carlo Rally and the Tour de Corse in Corsica!
It has to be said that with its successive engines, each one feistier than the last, the A110 could easily reach a top speed of 220 kph. The car’s performance and competitive edge were continuously honed throughout its career. In 1975, the Alpine A110 1800 (again designed for motorsports) was the last upgrade to come off the lines at the Dieppe plant. The Alpine A310 was already waiting in the wings.

르노가 지난 25일 모나코에서 알파인 A110-50 컨셉(Alpine A110-50 concept)을 공개했다. 전설적인 알파인 A110 탄생 50주년을 기념하기 위해 제작된 모델로 르노 메간 트로피를 가져와 르노 모터스포츠 팀(Renault Sport Technologies)에서 완성했다.

전체적인 디자인은 2010년 선보인 드지르(DeZir) 컨셉트카에서 가져왔고 2,625mm의 휠베이스는 메간 트로피와 같지만 앞뒤 트레드가 1,680mm와 1,690mm로 약간 넓다. 몸 전체를 카본 파이버로 만드는 등 경령화에 힘쓴 덕에 880kg으로 매우 가볍고 앞뒤 무게 비율이 47.8대 52.2로 이상적이다.

미드십으로 얹은 엔진은 닛산에서 공급받은 V6 3.5L로 모터스포츠 튜닝에 가해져 7,200rpm에서 최고출력 400마력, 6,200rpm에서 최대토크 43kgm의 강력한 토크를 낸다. 여기에 F1 타입의 시퀀셜 6단 변속기를 물려 가공할만한 주행성을 확보했다. 이밖에 레이싱 타입의 롤케이지, 샤벨트 버킷 시트, 대용량 브레이크, 디퓨저와 대형 윙, 스포츠 서스펜션 등 알파인의 전통에 따라 서킷 주행에 맞춰 제작되었다.
