Alpine History


1991 saw the launch of the A610. This model underwent a great deal of re-styling inside and out but was still recognisable as a GTA derivative. The chassis structure was extensively reworked but the central box principal remained the same. The front was completely re-designed. The interior and switch gear were also improved. Air-conditioning and power steering were fitted as standard.
