After receiving support from Renault, Jean Rédélé's financial worries came to end. Régie Renault become the majority shareholder and has no reason to regret the agreement. They can put their name next to the last year's World Rally Champion in advertising campaigns.
Not much has changed within the Alpine model range. The A-110 1600 received the light-alloy wheels from the A-310. They are optional on the 1300. A new, removable panel on the rear makes access to the engine much easier. Push buttons replaced door handles on all models. A new option 1600 SI with fuel injection was introduced in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
On the A-310 the ventilation slots in the bonnet has moved forward. The Bosch fuel injection become standard.
Production of the berlinette dropped this year from 652 to 622 and the A-310 from 655 to 437.
The factory in Thiron-Gardais was closed in August.
Paris Motor Show in October saw the berlinette with new, more angular bumpers.
