I spy a JCW Mini too! Back to the Alpine though, Litchfield took delivery of theirs a couple of weeks ago & it shouldn’t be long before they have some goodies available.

In fact it’s made to the ring today but still standard at the moment

Looks lovely. Would love to hear how it compares to the Evora as an every day driver. Cabin looks lush.

Yep , replaced the missus’s JCW coupe with newer JCW hatch last week to keep her away from the Alpine ;)

Other half has a Cooper SD (170ps 2.0d) like your JCW hatch & she has to keep the keys away from me! It’s her 4th Mini & by far the nicest.

I like this car. I would like to test it on track. The car should have 100 hp more 🤣

It is indeed a lovely car, thanks for bringing it in @DJW,some lovely little details in the design that i hadn’t noticed before, like the air intakes behind the windows & those rear lights. Look forward to full report before you chop it in for a 430 😀

Lol good to catch up.

Yep some nice details on car .  Some pics below of certain curves on car and other features that are some times missed in shots.

As a long-time Alpine admirer, I reckon this car looks the absolute business, and a gorgeous colour. Hopefully it’ll be a worthy successor to the previous models, and if I had a spare £50K, it would be top of my list.

Congratulations!

Hopefully Lotus will secretly buy one of these cars, disect it , take all the good bits then wrap it with the Lotus look and sprinkle with Hethel magic.

You do know who developed this car, don’t you?

Yep. And Caterham was staffed by a lot of ex-Lotus engineers & designers at the time!

Nice choice. As much as French cars are normally not anywhere near the top of my want list, this car does take my fancy.

My Elise Cup featured alongside this car in July's Car Magazine and the journalist writing the article did say it was the closest car to driving a Lotus. The article featured the TTRS and the Cayman 718 too.

Strangely the porker came out top but I suppose that was the overall package.

Enjoy, its a great looking car.

I've seen the car a few times and it obvious it was set directly against the Audi TT.

I find the looks a bit confusing, they very well copied the lines og the original but somehow when you see both it looks like an original A110 on steroids.

Interesting result as the missus was considering a new Cayman 718.  The Alpine is definitely faster than the base Cayman, sounds much better and is higher specced at same price points.  Personally I think the Alpine is the better car, but can see why people will still be attracted to the German badge.

basically the same price as an elise cup 250.. different cars or cars for different use granted

but   personally i think this just seems so much more of a complete  car for the money.. at that price point.. its really lovely.. 

it would be great if lotus had an equivalent to this  and the  other useable everyday sports cars  at that price point in the market right now..

i didnt realise they were making only 150 for the uk...  was kinda hoping might get one of these in couple of years time

That’s just the Premiere Edition.  They are producing the Pure and Legende which first owners will start to get the end of the year and anyone ordering one now will have 12-18 month wait.

ohhh lovely car, hope you enjoy it, I love the way it looks and all extra bits of detail they have put into the body, the vents and bumps and grooves etc 😍

I think this is what the last gen Europa was supposed to be but seems as if Alpine / Renault have done a better job or certainly created a bigger hype about the car than the Europa?  I haven't tried a Europa or an A110 but the A110 appears to be causing more of a stir and getting more positive reviews than the Europa.
