Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed to saturate the fibers of the watercolor paper, resulting in pure, rich color and remarkable detail.

Description

Have you ever heard about Jean Rédélé? If not you should fix this immediately. Because Mr. Rédélé was for Renault what Carlo Abarth was for FIAT. Just like Abarth, the founder of Alpine was skilled, dreaming, believing, doing and succeeding. That’s why we are paying tribute to his heritage with an art dedicated to Alpine A110. The French incarnation of Porsche 911 but more elegant and successful in rallying.

Alpine A110 was nothing less than a beauty among beasts

This car was purposely designed for rally and this approach paid off with numerous checkered flags and a lot of international acclaims. A110 not just won Monte Carlo Rally but it did it twice with 1-2-3 positions. During its relatively short production run between 1967 and 1973, this car either won the legendary Monaco rally or finished among the top 3. Sure, Alpine A110 was good enough to bring 3 of the International Championship for Manufactures trophies at Mr. Rédélé`s office.

The basic idea behind this car was pretty simple. It was created from the underpinnings of Renault 8 which was air-cooled, rear-engine compact car with 4 disc brakes. Jean Rédélé added lightness through fiberglass Berlinetta body and more powerful Renault engines. The result was loud, cramped, hot and beautiful. Initially, A110 was offered with humble 1.0-liter engine tuned up to 65 hp. Later was added 1.6 option producing almost 140 ponies thanks to the 2 twin barrel Weber carburetors. Due to the light weight of the car, it was fast both in curves and straights with max speed up to 210 km/h. With a jewel-like handling, Alpine A110 also won Coupe des Alpes, known as the Alpine Rally, for 3 consecutive years.

Lancia Stratos appeared in 1974 as the first car ever designed from scratch for rally racing that was homologated and operational. And it rocked. The tail-happy and gloried A110 soon became obsolete. Right now you can see it in motion at historic rallies like Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique.

Currently, the Dieppe factory where A110 was originally built is building the RenaultSport cars. It is expected that it will start production of the spiritual successor of A110 known as Alpine Vision Concept. But back in the 60s and 70s, A110 was built not just in France but also in Bulgaria, Spain, Mexico, and Brazil.

Now you can own this speeding car art dedicated to the legendary Alpine A110, beautifully created by Ilya Avakov and carefully issued as poster art print by Simply Petrol.
