A-110 GT4 at last year's Paris Motor Show.

For 1964 the Alpine range consists of four models: berlinette Tour de France, four-seater GT4, convertible and coupé Sport. The latter simply becomes a convertible with a permanently fitted hardtop. Lacking the apeal of the convertible and being more cramped than the berlinette this is the least popular version and wasn't even dispalyed at last year's Paris show.
There is a new 1.1 litre engine option for the berlinette. In October it becomes A-110/1100.

Na ten rok Alpine oferuje cztery modele: berlinette Tour de France, cztreromiejscowy GT4, kabriolet i dwumiejscowy coupé Sport. Ten ostatni jest po prostu wersją kabrioletu ze stałem dachem i cieszy się najmniejszym zainteresowaniem klientów. Nie znalazł się on nawet na stoisku firmy na ubiegłorocznym salonie w Paryżu.
Nowością jest 1,1 litrowy silnik oferowany jako opcja do berlinette Tour de France.
Rozpoczęto montaż modelu A 110 w zakładach DINA w Meksyku. To już druga, po Brazylii, "zamorska" licencja Alpine.

Having re-introduced the originally intended tubular frame the new M.64 is slightly narrower and lower than its predecessor. The height has been reduced from 1.13 m to 1.05 m. For the La Mans test in April it used the Renault Gordini 1150 cm³ engine from the Renault R8 which has two overhead camshafts and develops 115 bhp. The test proved unsatisfactory with some adjustments needed to the suspension.
For the race on 20th of June, Jean Rédélé entered four cars fitted with 4-cylinder 2-ohc engines ranging from 1001 to 1150 cm³.
The Alpine no.46 of Lageneste-Morrogh finished at the top of its category winning the efficiency index (average speed 163.374 km/h, weight 650 kg, fuel consumption 13.16 liters/100 km, index 1.48) and taking 17th place in overall ranking.

Mauro Bianchi and Vinatier spent five hours in the paddocks having their gearbox repaired.

Two weeks later, after it's excellent result at Le Mans, the Alpine M.64 with the 1150 cm³ engine finds itself at the 12 Hours of Reims. Carrying no.51 and driven by de Lageneste and Morrogh, it won in the category "prototypes less than 1300 cm³" covering just over 2,000 km at average speed 166,678 km/h. Two other Alpines (out of the four entered) finished this endurance race: No.50 of Rosinski-Grandsire and no.49 of Vinatier-Mauro Bianchi, respectively averaging 165,297 km/h and 150,767 km/h.

Unlucky Vidal-Grandsire retired after 14 hours due to transmission failure.
