This brand, the Alpine, is a perennial favorite of the racing set in France. That reputation was first started with the Renault Alpine A110. The A110 is known for its racing pedigree where the A310 is known more for its abilities in the Gran Turismo.
The body work and components of the model on display are all, fully, original. The original French owner keep it in pristine condition during his 39 years of ownership.
The A110’s popularity has eclipsed the A310 and because of this there are, unfortunately, only a few examples of the A310 left in the world today. Among these rare cars only a very few have the distinction of still possessing their full complement of original parts and bodies. After 40 years of miraculous preservation this exceedingly rare example has made its way to Japan.
