When you stop and consider the fact that the Alpine A110 won its last world rally championship in 1973— eleven years after it was designed—you start to get the idea of just how brilliant ths little car really is. It actually wasn’t until the Lancia Stratos came along that anything else was significantly better. And 40 years later, nothing’s going to beat it in a vintage rally, certainly nothing for under 100 Gs.
