Agreed, it would have been nice to have a Porsche with a similar spec to the Alpine on test . However at the end of the day, these days, the list price is irrelevant. It all down to monthly payments on a PCP deal. Porsche has rock solid residuals. The Alpine is unknown as yet & will be penalised as such.

Be interesting to see how mappable the engine is, none of the tuners I've looked at have anything for the 1.8 turbo yet but can't believe they won't be able to get it past 300bhp comfortably. And while it might not "need" more power, from a marketing point of view it really does. Turbo Cayman will map past 400bhp I would think if the recent turbo engines coming out of the VAG are anything to go by.

I don't get the obsession with power outputs and 0-60 times, the most enjoyable cars are the ones you can have fun with not the ones that race away from the lights.

Most of these powerful cars are designed for the autobahns not B roads. Thats where a narrow nimble light and well balanced car is such a joy to drive.

I will reserve final judgement until I drive one I am happy with the performance figures that I have seen for the Alpine.

Nice review in What Car. They place it first above the Cayman S.

Called into the Alpine centre at Hatfield last week but no signage or anything relating to Alpine was seen. Spoke to a salesman that knew nothing about the car except it I was there a week before and has a race button right there in front of you. Left my details as the person that deals with Alpine wasn't there but would get back to me. Nothing.

Hi Trevor,

The dealer network is still in progress and should be up and running in July. The Alpine Centre in St Albans is a franchise run by Martins and the adviser is called Mike.

If you've got any questions on the A110 and struggling on getting answers, feel free to get in touch with me.

Hi Ian,

Thank for taking an interest and I'll be in touch if there is anything specific. I thought I'd see when they would have a demo and get myself on any mailing list for direct updates, figured a local dealer would want to make the most of potential customers and therefore be quick to update me.

No worries at all,Trevor.

The network should be getting showroom and demo cars at some stage in July.

Inbox me on here if you need anything specific.

Think its Glyn Hopkins at St Albans that's the Alpine dealer Trevor. I just got another van from them and they have Alpine on the business cards anyway.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer- for sale- (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Black (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.

Newly released specifications and prices!

For the next run of the critically acclaimed Alpine A110 'Premier Edition' are two new models. 'Pure' and 'Legend' The Pure being a more stripped back version weighing in at just under 1100kgs whilst the Legend follows on from the Premier as more of a GT model.

Ive already spec'd out my 'Pure' version... ::G ::R ::I ::S :D

I’m wondering if there will be any Premiere editions available when delivery finally arrives, will have to wait and see. White would be my choice I think.

Now the prices have been announced has anyone decided on their spec.

I think I am going lightweight, so;

Pure
Alpine Blue or Blue Abyss
Sports Exhaust
Rear Parking sensors

Not sure about wheels, either stick with the standard wheels, upgrade to the Fuchs or buy some aftermarket OZ ultraleggera's.

think these are the "production" versions rather than special editions.
