Produced in around 6500 examples, the Alpine GTA (Grand Tourisme Alpine), also known as Renault Alpine GTA, is introduced in 1985 to replace the A310. This car is 4,33 meters long and 1,75 wide and has a low weight of just 1110 kilos. Another strength of this vehicle is the excellent aerodynamic: the GTA has a Cx of just 0.28. As you can see, the GTA’s design presents countercurrent squared lines, which at the time were generally considered unpleasant but original compared to its competitors. Certainly, the GTA isn’t as classy as a Porsche 944 and doesn’t offer the same build quality. The GTA comes with three different V6 engine configurations: the 160HP GT, the 200HP Turbo, and the 260HP limited edition (69 examples) Turbo Europa Cup. All the engines are produced by PRV and, combined with excellent aerodynamic and low weight, guarantee outstanding performances. The Alpine GTA was a commercial failure especially in the USA, where only 21 units were sold. In 1991, the new A610 replaces it.
