Presented in October last year, the modernized Berlinette Tour de France has larger headlights with new shaped covers. Additional iodine lamps are now standard equipment. The cars have wider tires and widened wheel arches. The side trim strips has changed shape. As a result of redesigning the rear suspension, the engineers managed to provide more space inside. These changes apply to all models with the exception of the 1100. The engine range has been limited to four and the 1500 has been replaced by the 1.6-litre from the Renault R16 TS.
This year Alpine doubled its production. The company produced 639 copies of the Berlinette (76 pcs. of 1100, 361 pcs. of 1300 and 202 pcs. of 1600), and 20 convertibles and coupes GT4. Both the cabriolet and coupé GT4 were discontinued in the summer.
At the same time the production was moved to a new 13,000 m² factory built in Rouxmesnil-Bouteilles, in the heart of an industrial area near Dieppe. This modern unit employs 350 people. In addition there are 75 workers who continue in the workshops in Thiron-Gardais which was opened in 1967.

Zaprezentowany w październiku ubiegłego roku, zmodernizowany berlinette Tour de France ma większe reflektory z osłonami o nowym kształcie. Dodatkowe lampy jodowe stanowią teraz wyposażenie seryjne. Zastosowano szersze opony i poszerzono błotniki. Boczne listwy ozdobne mają zmieniony kształt. W wyniku przekonstruowania tylnego zawieszenia udało się wygospodarować więcej miejsca we wnętrzu. Zmiany te dotyczą wszystkich modeli z wyjątkiem 1100. Oferta silników została ograniczona do czterech a sinlik 1500 zastąpiony został przez jednostkę o pojemności 1,6 litra z Renault R16 TS.
W tym roku Alpine podwoiło produkcję. Bramy fabryki opuściło 639 egzemplarzy berlinette (76 szt. 1100, 361 szt. 1300 i 202 szt. 1600) oraz 20 kabrioletów i coupé GT4, których budowa latem została zaniechana.

For the traditional tests at Le Mans in the spring Alpine brought seven prototypes and one GT car. Nothing has changed among the four-cylinder A-210 range of 1005 and 1300 cm³. The 1500 cm³ engine gained a fuel injection which raised the power output to 155 bhp. The three eight-cylinder A-220's have more aerodynamic bodies but the engines are the same as last year, developing a mere 310-315 bhp.
For the race in June the Alpine team lined-up eight vehicles.
Only one of them managed to cross the finishing line winning the performance index. Repeating technical problems are beginning to harm the firm reputation. Jean Rédélé decided to leave racing and concentrate on rallies.
