Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alpine was a French manufacturer of racing and sports cars that used rear mounted Renault engines. Jean R d l, the founder of Alpine, was originally a Dieppe garage proprietor, who began to achieve considerable competition success in one of the few French cars produced just after World War 2. Using Renault 4CVs, R d l gained class wins in a number of major events, including the Mille Miglia and Coupe des Alpes. As his experience with the little 4CV built up, he incorporated many modifications, including for example, special 5 speed gear boxes replacing the original 3 speed unit.show more
