Renault Alpine A110 (1961-1977)

The Alpine A110, also known as the "Berlinette", was a sports car produced by the French manufacturer Alpine from 1961 to 1977. Like other road-going Alpines, the 1961 A110 used many Renault parts - including engines. 5-speed manual. It was delivered first with "Berlinetta" bodywork and then as a cabriolet. The A110 was originally available with 1.1 L R8 Major or R8 Gordini engines. The Gordini engine delivered 95 hp at 6,500 rpm. 

The A110 achieved most of its fame in the early 1970s as a victorious rally car. After winning several rallies in France in the late 1960s with iron-cast R8 Gordini engines the car was fitted with the aluminium-block Renault 16 TS engine. With two dual-chamber Weber 45 carburetors the TS engine delivered 125 hp (93 kW) DIN at 6,000 rpm. This allowed the production 1600S to reach a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph). The car was considered one of the strongest rally cars of its time. As well as being built at Alpine's Dieppe factory, A110 models were constructed by various other vehicle manufacturers around the world until 1977. (wikipedia)
