About the Alpine Renault A110 Monte Carlo Rally 1971 / France's Lightweight Super Rally Car
The Alpine Renault A110 raced in rallies around the world from the late 1960's through to the early 1970's. The rear wheel drive A110 featured a lightweight FRP body and was powered by a rear mounted 4-cylinder engine. In the 1971 Monte Carlo Rally, this compact design and a powerful 1,600cc engine allowed quick, agile running on the icy mountain tracks, giving the A1110 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for a clean sweep of the podium.
