Renault Alpine GTA

You don’t need us to tell you that the Poms are a strange bunch. They worship the Porsche 911 and will happily pay $500k for an underwhelming 964 Turbo but offer them a rear-engined Renault Alpine sportster from just across the Channel and they’ll think you’re trying to introduce them to something terrifying and alien.

Every once in a while, though, a Renault GTA comes up for sale here, usually imported by a Brit.

Prices for these cars are on their knees right now and whether you choose the 2.8-litre 119kW normally aspirated car or the more fragile 149kW turbocharged 2.5-litre version, you can normally count on work needing to be done.

You can pick these up for $15-20k, but look out for chassis rust and be prepared for electrical fun and games. There’s an excellent owners club so spares and body panels can still be sourced.

 

Price guide:

Low: $15,000
High: $30,000
