I had the turbo version after owning the turbo R25. The Alpine was plastic in more ways than one and horribly unreliable. It was a good thing that the engine came out relatively easily, for almost every job needed it. The turbo engine at least was a fantastically tight fit. The R25 was a much nicer car.

@Robertlyn Schultz Sorry. In my first post, i've seen that it was 2 times the same video. Here is the one i wanted to post : (Venturi 400 in action during a race in Japan).

@Robertlyn Schultz Today the brand still exists. It was purchased in 2000 by the Monégasque billionaire Pastor, and since, is based in Monaco. They produce only electric cars, mostly for competition. I hope for a real come back in the future, like Alpine, with their new A110 : Venturi speed record in US (Great salt lake) with an electric car. 2014 French Venturi club meeting for the 30th anniversary of the brand, with 90 cars present and some German guests.

The GTA does not have the emissions gear that the DeLorean had, but the DeLorean has fuel injection. Emissions reduced DeLorean power from 190hp to 130hp! The wipers are called ‘clap hands’ wipers for obvious reasons.

"I wonder why it did not sell well." There's a PRV (Peugeot-Renault-Volvo) in it. That's all you need to know. Being an old Volvo's enthusiast myself, all I can tell you is that you need to avoid the PRV at all cost. This was the worst, most infamous engine to ever be offered in a Volvo.

I was lucky enough to drive the turbo version of the Renault Alpine on many occasions back in the day… a fantastic car! But, I take issue with your point about the '80s not being a great decade for cars!!! BMW E30 M3, Lancia Delta integrale, Ford Sierra Cosworth, Audi quattro, Lotus Esprit, Ferrari 288GTO, Porsche 959… shall I go on?

The bath tub sensor is an oil level indicator that if it’s anything like any of the renaults I’ve owned comes on when the ignition is switched on and then goes out when the engine is a started - a useful feature except, on all of mine it didn’t work properly and only read half full!

On a tv-show about classic cars and their modern counterparts, they showed a 1960s Alpine and compared it with an 1980s one. The 1960s looked a bit like a lower, sleeker Porsche. The real surprise was when they compared maneuverability, don't know the real name of the test but it looks like slalom around traffic cones, you know zigzagging your car as fast as possible. The 1980s Alpine did fine. The 1960s Alpine did even better!

Worked on some of these in the 90's, as I recall there was a fault with the headlamps, I changed a lot of them, even if not faulty, they usually needed loads of bugs vacumimg out of them, and the silver reflection materiel used to flake off and lie in the bottom of the light lens

Had a couple of Renault’s back in the day, a 1979 LeCar, great runner and fun to toss into a corner. Then a 1984 Fuego, great car to drive, terrible car to own, it leaked every fluid you put in it. Traded it two years later for a 1986 Corolla SR5 and never looked back. Great review by the way.

Every 45-50,000 miles you had to Change master and slave clutch cylinders, the slipring and bearing in the alternateur, and both rear wheelhub rollers, or else. Twas inexpensive. I spoke French because I was a chemist, and the Alpine warehouse worker spoke English. By 177,000 miles 5th synchro was shot and transaxle seals leaked. Relays lasted the life of the car unlike a Boxster's top's relay...

I had one, the A310 pack GT. The '86 weighed 2513 lb not 2700 in atmospheric. My '84 A310GT weighed 1025 kg. After 180,000 miles it caught fire and burned from a gas leak. Alpine used a 10,1:1 compression ratio and a Solex 34tbia with a Solex 35ceei added in by vacuum. This was in the Peugeot 604 SL at 8,8:1 compression ratio, of which I have 2.

Isaac Fortner
Isaac Fortner Prije 2 mjeseci
To be fair to Delorean, the PRV engine was neutered with emissions equipment to meet US emissions specs. The 1981 Corvette had a 5.7L V8 with only 190hp, so you can't beat up Delorean too much on that one. If you take off the restrictive cats and adjust the fuel injection to Euro-spec, the Delorean will make the same 170+ hp this does.
