Renault A310 owners?

Never been in one, but when I owned my R5 Turbo 2, I went to buy some used TRX tyres from a chap called Roy Smith in Milton Keynes. He was quite an officionado on all things Alpine Renault and even wrote the book on the A110 range. He owned a wide body A110 rally car and a V6 A310. This one, but it seems to be an earlier car with 3 stud hubs. I never did use the tyres. Turns out the rears were a really odd size 200mm wide I think. I still have them sitting on the rafters of my garage roof, despite selling the car 14 years ago.

I have briefly owned a GTA Turbo, which my brother still has. By the way are you OK with LHD only in Australia?

Most of the 8 of which there are 4 off 4 clinder cars and 4, A310s V6 cars here have been converted to RHD. 

also at least 1 I am aware off A110s in RHD

The Australian market, might be different to Europe (inc. UK), but over here an RHD conversion would be a hard sell. Originality is everything here.
 

I once had a RHD converted R5 Turbo 2 as a courtesy car for a few days. It was quite difficult to drive compared to my original LHD one, because the right side footwell is much narrower than the left, so not much room for the pedals. I have no idea if this applies to the A310, but it’s worth checking when you look on Friday.

Originality is important, however as Australians are only ever exposed to mainly US imports people are far more interested in RHD conversions except for the super mega expensive that cannot be converted ie Veyrons etc. which imported under a special scheme.

LHD cars here like Porsche’s and Ferrari’s mainly from the Us are a very hard sell and usually 2/3 the price of RHD cars.

RHD imports also suffer discrimination as the were not Australian delivered 

 

Pictures to come.
