Alpine-Renault 1976

A-110
A-310

France

 

For 1976 the two 1.6 litre engines in the A-110 have been replaced with one less powerful unit that came from the Renault R16 TX. Not such a performer but easier to drive in city traffic. The same engine found its way under the bonnet of the A-310, making this version more affordable.
Since the salon in Paris in October the A-110 becomes available as the 1600 SX only. The 1977 model can be distinguished by not having air intakes under the headlight and new wheels.
