Alpine is the sporting offshoot of Renault.
I have eight, a mix of A310s and A110s, made by Solido, Bburago, Majorette, Hot Wheels and Deagostini in France, Portugal, Italy, Malaysia, Thailand and China.The Bburago model of the Berlinetta is 1:24 scale, the Bburago model of the Alpine 110-50 is 1:64, the two A310 a red Solido and a blue “Gendarmerie” DeAgostini models are 1:43 scale. The Majorette A110 model in the front is a 1:53 scale model with opening doors, the other Majorette model is a red A110-50 next to a light blue A110 Cup by Hot Wheels.
The original A110 was launched in 1963. Alpine was founded by a garage proprietor from Dieppe called Jean Rédélé, who started out racing and tuning rear-engined Renaults before starting to use the same mechanical components in his own lightweight sports cars. Competition versions of the first A110 stayed competitive throughout the car’s long life, dominating many of the mountainous rally races that inspired the brand’s name. It was still winning in 1973, taking the inaugural World Rally Championship for manufacturers and the first three places at the famous Rallye Monte-Carlo that year. In 2018 the Alpine brand was revived with a reborn mid-engined A110.
