Jean Rédélé was a racing driver, and his major impetus to create Alpine was to improve his on-track performance. The youngest Renault dealer in France, he started rallying in 1950 with a Renault 4CV, and it was upon that chassis that the Alpine A106 was built. The early Alpines were marketed as racing cars; it wasn’t until 1957 that the A106 was shown at the Paris Motor Show and pushed to road car customers.
