Mid-week trip to Koln on b’iness. Highlight of an otherwise unremarkable 2 days was last-night’s autobahn thrash in the boss’s 1981 Renault Alpine A310.
Hidden in the depths of a labyrinthine underground car-park….
I haven’t seen one of these for a while, it’s still an amazingly aggressive little beastie and its form manages to look almost contemporary; only the scrappy detailing and generous cutlines let the side down….though that’s a bit unfair – the driver’s door was open in this shot 😉
Though weedy by today’s standards (150hp from the PRV V6), it weighs a bantam-weight 980kg, so feels pretty quick up to 100mph or so.
This shot shows either; a- How miniscule this car is, or b- how fat a Mondeo is…..or possibly both, but I couldn’t comment on that.
French Glam in underground Germany…
