Known History

In 1977 Renault developed a Group 4 A310 with which Guy Fréquelin won the title of French Rally Champion. Building on this success, Alpine offered a customer version of the Group 4 in late 1980, but only six cars were produced, and ultimately dropped by Renault to promote the arrival of the R5 Turbo. In parallel, a kit was proposed to modify a series production model to group 4. It included large, ventilated disc brakes, large hubs, chassis reinforcements, and a more direct steering.

The car on offer uses the characteristics of the Gp 4 which were modified with this kit at the beginning of the 1980s. Thus, it benefited from a thorough preparation, its Ferry engine is new, and it develops 261bhp on the test bench. A Mignotet oil pan, and a Rallye exhaust have been fitted, and a Boulogne air box will come with the vehicle. Cooling was by a large capacity radiator with additional circulator and two fans. Transmission is a 5-speeder, with dog clutch, relayed by a self-locking bridge with limited slip differential. The adjustable R-tec suspension system has been refurbished, and an approved central aluminum fuel tank has been installed. The interior is fitted with a Jacques Point roll bar, bucket seats, approved 6-point harness, and automatic fire extinguishers. Shod with specific Gotti rims and weighing less than a ton, this A310 is a model of efficiency.

Its current owner has long distinguished himself in the French VHC championship with his A110. For him this A310 was a logical evolution. Being particularly rigorous and wishing for an optimally tuned car, he did not hesitate to entrust his car to Jean-Claude Andruet during the Luc hill climb race to get his impressions. As he is aging he decided to part with his car, the preparation of which had been for him an adventure of several years. It has an up-to-date PTHN that will allow its future owner to take part in VHC events. It is also comes with a prepared engine, installed by Marc Mignotet. A fine tribute to the legendary Calberson A310, which had such an impact at its time, this example is deserving of the attention of racers and collectors.
