Rally Preparation Services is pleased to offer this Sunbeam Alpine Classic rally car. A delightful alternative to the more ubiquitous MGB, the Alpine has always been a stalwart of the UK and European Classic rally world.

 

The Sunbeam name can be traced back to the dawn of the motor car and even slightly before. Bicycles, aero engines, land-speed records and racing all feature in the heritage of Sunbeam and as with so many automotive pioneers so does the grim juggulation of insolvency. Scooped up by the Rootes Group in 1934, the Sunbeam brand was initially linked with Talbot before broadly becoming the sporting brand of the Rootes Group. Success in rallies followed with an outright win for a Sunbeam on the 1955 Monte Carlo and after 3 consecutive penalty free runs for Stirling Moss on the Alpine rally a “Coupe d’Or”. No surprise the new car was called the Alpine. Often overshadowed by it’s big brother, the Tiger, the Alpine is 100kg lighter and very much at home on twisty roads.

 

This Alpine has competed on various events over the last 20 years including the 2014  Winter Trial to Monte Carlo and notably achieving success in the 2000 Le Jog in the hands of Robin Eyre Maunsell with the Telegraph reporting “set fastest time of all on several tests, despite opposition ranging from incredibly nippy MG Midgets and Mini Coopers to astonishingly fast Porsche 911s. His Alpine, a model often slated as unsporting, comprehensively defeated all the rally-prepared MGBs in its class”. Purchased by the current owner with a view to go Classic rallying a bad back has curtailed plans so this old war-horse has been dry stored for the last 4 years. Realistically a bit of a project, this charming Alpine is itching to go rallying again. We have just overhauled the carburettors and can confirm the engine seems healthy. With a bit of work this Alpine offers an ideal entry to the sport without too great a commitment. 

 

The car is currently residing at RPS’ sister company – the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.

 

All viewings and test drives welcomed by appointment at Rally Preparation Services.
