Known History

Finding one of the 818 Alpine A610s produced with a single owner is exceptional, and when it has been from the beginning in the ownership by a former Alpine factory racer, it is indeed a once in a lifetime opportunity! Indeed, Jean de Alexandris, the winner of the 1968 Morocco Rally with Jean-Pierre Nicolas, member of the Alpine team when it was World Rally champion in 1973, as well as talented co-driver of Jean Guichet and Jean-Franšois Piot, could not help but order the new A610 when it was unveiled in 1991. Obviously very close to the brand, the car benefitted from some modifications by the factory: the possible disconnection of the ABS by a small button under the dashboard, elimination of the air-conditioning, as well as an increase of 0.3 bars of pressure in the turbo so as to "leave the Porsches in the rearview mirror"! Electric blue in color with a cloth interior, it benefited from a replacement of its speedometer in 2016 at 47,821 km, as confirmed by a document attached to the file and since then the car has covered 1,273 km. The body has been repainted and is in a used condition, whilst the interior is well preserved. The four rims are new and have been fitted with Pirelli P-Zero tires.

With its clear history, exceptional provenance and nicely preserved condition, this rare A610 bears the signature of Jean-Pierre Nicolas and Jean de Alexandris: a true collectible!
