The Alpine Renault M63 was created in 1962, and represents the first racing car developed by the brand founded by Jean Rédélé. It is distinguished by a very aerodynamic body, recognizable by the fairing of the rear wheels and by the fastback design of the roof. Equipped with an engine that developed a modest 95 hp, its very profiled design allowed it to exceed 220 km / h in the straight line of the Hunaudières. The No. 48 was entrusted to José Rosinski and the Brazilian driver Christian "Bino" Heins, who had nevertheless decided to retire before Le Mans that year.
Unfortunately, a terrible tragedy struck the first Dieppe outing at Le Mans as "Bino" Heins was killed in the 50th lap on the oil spilled by Aston Martin from New Zealand driver Bruce McLaren.
The two other cars entrusted to the crews Bernard Boyer-Guy Verrier and René Richard-Piero Frescobaldi, did not finish the race.
