The Alpine GTA was the first car launched by Alpine under Renault
ownership. It was essentially an update of the Alpine A310.
It used the PRV V6 engine (an engine jointly developed by Peugeot,
Renault and Volvo) in a rear-engined layout.
The Alpine GTA's aerodynamic body was constructed mainly from
fibreglass, making it lighter than the Porsche 944 which it was pitched against.
It came in both turbo and naturally aspirated forms.
In 1991 the Renault Alpine GTA V6 was updated and became the
Renault Alpine A610.
Review by: Peter Browne:
There were basically three models. 2.8 litre normally aspirated
model, 160 bhp 2.5 litre Turbo, 200 bhp 2.5 litre Turbo Le Mans,
185bhp (catalytic converter).
The 2.5 litre Turbo model was the most common.
