"Serial number 18318 Matching numbers 3rd hand French title A French sports car developed by Jean Rédélé, the Alpine A110 is the brand's iconic model. Commonly known as the "Berlinette", it was manufactured at the Alpine factory in Dieppe between 1962 and 1977 from Renault engines. Agile, light and sharp, it won the World Rally Championship in 1971 and 1973. The last representative of the A110 line, the 1600 SX is often the least known of all the Berlinettes produced by the Dieppe factory. It has the R16 TS engine at the rear developing 95 horsepower. The last model produced during the "berlinette" era, the 1600SX saw its production stopped in July 1977 to make way for the A310. This model was first registered in 1973 in Ardèche where the first owner kept the car for two years before selling it to the second owner who kept it from 1975 to 2021. The latter never raced the car and used it almost exclusively to go to work. In 1981, he had an accident which forced him to change the whole body in fibreglass. Sold in 2021 to the current owner, he hastened to do a major mechanical overhaul as the car had not been driven much since the early 2000s. A complete oil change was carried out as well as the replacement of the spark plugs, the fuel hoses and the rebuilding of the braking system. The fuel tank was cleaned and a mechanical fuel pump was installed in place of the electric one to bring it back to its original state. Today the berlinette is unveiled in a Group 4 1800 type bodywork, a true third hand car that will delight its next owner who will be able to take it for its first ride in 50 years on the historic rally tracks.
