1987 Renault Alpine GTA V6 Turbo
the current for 22 years; huge history file; recent service; funky Eighties
styling at its finest!
Supplied new by Renault Covent Garden of London in
November 1987, this GTA V6 Turbo has had just four owners to date and has been
in the current ownership since 1999 at which point it had covered some 84,000
miles, the odometer now showing 112,170 miles.
The current owner kept a detailed log of every mile
covered and every penny spent on the car from 1999 to 2017 when it was put into
storage due to ill health. Dozens of invoices show meticulous upkeep over this
18-year period, most of the servicing being carried out by Roadspeed Performance
of Stroud with the odd visit to Hillcrest Specialist Cars of Nettlebed, Oxon.
Calculations show that the car has averaged 22.8mpg and invoices show that it
was resprayed in 2004 when the Azev wheels were also refurbished.
Dozens of earlier invoices show that the car was
maintained by Renault agent Rogate Garage of Petersfield between 1994 and 1999
when the mileage rose from c.40k to c.84k. The work carried out over the years
is far too detailed to cover here but it is abundantly clear that the car has
been extremely well looked after for many years. Other documentation includes 23
old MOTs back to 1993, current V5C and old style V5, magazine road tests of
similar cars in period plus much else besides.
Recently taken out of storage, we are told that the car
has just had a brake overhaul, engine service, new coolant radiator and waxoil
treatment, sailing through its MOT in January this year with no advisories
recorded. Starting promptly and running nicely as we moved it around for these
photos, it appears to be in generally good condition for its age and is sure to
turn heads wherever it goes.
