Description

Alpine Renault collector's car that was bought and prepared by the customer with specially designed wheels in aluminium and with larger dimensions than the original ones, a reinforced and lowered suspension, an exhaust pipe designed to increase the power and with a wonderful sound. The original wheels and exhaust are delivered with this car.
Painted in ALPINE's exclusive metallic blue.

In terms of driving behaviour, the engine had considerably less turbo lag than the GTA, delivering its power much more progressively thanks to a virtually flat torque curve, with at least 338 N-m (249 lb-ft) between 2000 and 5200 rpm. For its part, the gear lever was smooth and precise to operate, although the travel was a little long for sporty use.

The increased weight load on the front wheels, due to the new weight distribution, forced the engineers to incorporate a new speed-sensitive steering assist. This lost some of the sensitivity of its predecessor, but it was less nervous at the limit and the steering was exceptionally good, with a nose that felt light and responsive to steering changes.

The suspension was a little stiff, but the handling was excellent even without a self-locking differential, achieving very high grip and cornering. It had a great feel and was very safe to drive in all conditions, with a rear end that was less prone to slipping than that of the GTA. The brakes, meanwhile, were powerful, inexhaustible, and very dosable.

As a sports car with the engine mounted behind the rear axle, the trade press did not hesitate to compare it with a model like the Porsche 911 Carrera 2 (964), which had the same power output. The German model was better finished and at least had some luggage space in its front bonnet, as well as a more efficient front end, a shorter gearbox and somewhat more comfortable suspension. On the other hand, the Alpine was better in terms of price, fuel consumption, its more exclusive and modern image, the responsiveness of its engine - more energetic and elastic - and its better recuperation and acceleration.
