|A-110||– discontinued in July|
In July, after 15 years, the career of the Alpine A-110 came to end. This remarkable model was first introduced in 1960 as the A-108 powered by a 0.9-litre Renault Dauphine engine. Two years later it become the A-110. Since then the car has undergone countless modifications with engine size growing up to 1.1, 1.3, 1.6-litre and even 1.8-litre in competition version. The peak of its career came in 1973, when it won the World Rally Championship. From 1962 7,176 A-110's were made in France. It was also built under licence in Brazil, Mexico, Bulgaria and it is still made in Spain.
The 4-cylinder engine on the A-310 was discontinued in the beginning of the year. With the new V6-cylinder all-light-alloy unit the car become even more luxurious and expensive. In October its price was 79,600 Francs - 18 thousand more than the Peugeot 504 V6 coupé. Introduced in its current form at the Paris show in October last year it is a very fine car indeed. It has new headlights, new wheels, a front spoiler, larger air intake, rear spoiler, new rear lights, more comfortable seats, better upholstery, modified dashboard.

With the new engine the A-310 has finally enough power to become the true successor to the famous berlinette. So far it follows the exact steps winning many local rallies this year and becomes the 1977 French Rally Champion.
Exhibited in March at the Geneva Motor Show this fibreglass coupé was built on the A-310 chassis by the French stylist Meyrignac. The one-piece body has no traditional doors and the entire roof lifts to give access to the passenger compartment.
