It's very pretty. It's got a retro vibe but you don't need to explain it. It's fast enough but not shouty.

i think it's cool.

I like it a lot - was a big fan of the original way back in the days. I knew a man called Jose who had one and who visited his customers in it - driving up and down Joux Plane, Chatillon and such like all day just for the heck of it.

It was cool then and the new one is cool now.

I would love one of these. More, perhaps, than a 4C.


BTW I can't see the pics EPiSiF.

Looks like a concept car from Porsche as they struggle to work out what the next Caybanana should look like

EVO mag put it 2nd in their recent 2018 Car Of The Year Award 2018 ahead of even the Ferrari 458 Pista, 911 GT2 RS & M2 Competition - that says it all really. Narrowly beaten by the McLaren 600LT.

Every other car mag rave about it as well. I think CAR said ".....already it's an all-time great".

It does the illustrious Alpine name proud. Fantastic first-effort from the re-born marque.

It was reviewed on the last episode of The Grand Tour.

I'm not a fan of the way they've recreated the central fogs, but otherwise it looks like an amazing car....and much like the first manifestation of 156, it looks better from behind

BTW, the original a110 looks are sub zero....I'd even go as far as using the kelvin scale.

Had a poster as a kid of the Alpine A110 1973-Rally WC win, using the Renault 16 TS engine. Sub zero for me.

The modern A110 rides much higher, but is at least cool.
