Alpine-Renault A110 1600 S from NOREV. Pocket-sized dreams

Not everyone will be into it, but it is a given that the holidays are just around the corner. And that is a moment to look forward to for young and old. The holidays are often celebrated with gifts. And for the collectors among you there is always enough old and new to put on the list. How about the Alpine Renault A110 1600 S from 1972, which was reduced eighteen times by NOREV and comes in that beautiful Alpine blue color?

The collectors with an Alpine Renault heart undoubtedly know: NOREV has already released more versions of the enchanting model. For example, the white with the stripe across the middle is a nice version for the cupboard. But NOREV also released the Alpine Renault A110 1600 S in other paint finishes. For example, it is also available in subtle gray and in other colours. But now there is a new variation on the Alpine theme that is only gaining popularity: the version in Alpine Blue, with classic Alpine Renault print on the side.

The A110. Every sports car fanatic knows the car. The Alpine Renault and its ancestors made grateful use of the existing and adapted Renault technology. The constructors in Dieppe knew what to do with that. It was no different with the A110. Take the photo model, which is a 1:18 edition of the 1600 S. The one to one version was built from 1970 to the autumn of 1972, and received, for example, a modified 1565 cc Cléon-Fonte engine. In its original form you found the power source in the Renault 16TS, and it delivered 83 DIN hp. For the Alpine Renault, the engine was extensively modified, with the result that it was good for more than 120 DIN hp at 7200 rpm and a top speed of 210 km/h. This A110 1600 S was beautifully lined, and was a beautiful piece of design. It is not for nothing that the current A110 is certainly strongly inspired by the design of the A110 of yesteryear. The car was also a strong weapon for French motorsport in major rallies. For example, in 1971 Alpine-Renault won the IMC, the predecessor of the WRC. The list of victories in rallies is immense.

The Alpine Renault A110 captivates, as said. Its design is particularly harmonious in all its sportiness. The many curves, the low cut-out, the way in which the rear window connects the middle section and the rear and especially the balance in the design still make the car a sporty and very attractive whole. And yes, the A110 was good for good performance, it still is. The cuddliness factor is also high with this biting Frenchman. We understand very well that this experience is not for everyone, simply because you don't see an A110 every day. Let alone you Even decides to purchase such an A110. If you use the real consider: asking prices of €35.000 for a mediocre copy to a ton for an A110 in excellent shape are no exception.

Fortunately, various miniature manufacturers make dreams come true in a small format. And NOREV does that with many models, including the A110 shown. The latest release is the miniature painted in Alpine Bleu, with Alpine Renault print on the rear sides. As we are used to from NOREV 1:18 models, the case is again excellent in proportion, and the interior is catchy. The details are also very accurate. Good, because especially on the exterior side, the Alpine A110 1600 S is not an easy model to model.

NOREV has a suggested retail price of €59,90, and the beautiful scale model can also be ordered there. You may also be able to make your move at the well-known national and international sales sites. And that applies not only to the latest Alpine Renault A110 1600 S edition from NOREV, but also to the models in a different color scheme. The prices then vary from the recommended retail price to more than €80, excluding shipping costs. For the purchasing experience, it is of course even more fun to visit a miniature specialty shop yourself and possibly buy the scale model. Anyway: NOREV once again succeeds in making the hearts of miniature fans beat faster. And that will certainly apply to the Alpine adepts. Whatever color you choose.

  1. Beautiful model and has been on my wish list for a while, however 1:18 is too big for me. Have 4 of those size models and take up way too much space. Max 1:124 is manageable for me.

  2. Very nice model of a great car. I especially like the color scheme, this is 'just' the standard factory version. There are already many models (if you bought them all, you would have spent an amount for which you could also have bought a real one!) but many are in rally and racing colours. Also nice.

  3. Found a photo ( Bburago ) ve 1600S with number 28.
    The Alpine with the legendary Anderson who won the Monte Carlo Rallye in 1971.
    A bizarre Rallye in terms of weather conditions and many never made it to the Finish.
    I also have this model.
    Still hard to find.

    Beware of Ali copies.

  4. And don't forget that the A20 22 Berlinette was released by Bburago about 110-1300 years ago!
    1: 18.
    Also in Alpine blue.
    plus Rallye versions!
    So including the black "eyebrows" over the covers of the headlights.
    I still have them in box.
    Stored in the warehouse.
    Photos will follow another time.
    Very nice specimens.

    • True, only the Norev models are much better finished. If you want a Bburago model with the finish of a Norev model, you have to go to the Signature series from Bburago, which did not exist 20 years ago.

  5. What a beautiful model from Norev again 👍 And for me it's the color for this Alpine. Nice to have in the showcase, in real life it won't work for me either 😄
