Midrand - A rare Alpine and a unique South African built rally car were part of a selection of delectable collector’s cars that went under the hammer on April 2 2016, part of the first classic car auction by WH Auctioneers in Midrand, Gauteng.

The auction was headlined by a 1971 Alpine Renault A110 1600 S. This beautiful car, a VB version with chassis number 331, is one of an estimated 1800 VB’s built in Alpine’s Dieppe factory in France from 1968 to 1973.

With Renault set to revive the Alpine name in 2017, with the introduction of a new mid-engine sports car, reminiscent of the A110, interest in original A110s have peaked.
