Obviously they're offered to people who already have a reservation in place first but failing that, there is a list of people who specifically want a P.E.



Interesting, I went on the list in December last year so not that high up the list but not heard anything from Solihull.

Solihull have only appointed their Alpine adviser relatively recently so it has been a difficult one for Tim.

I know they've not had many cancellations to be fair but you're right, you're probably not up towards the top of the list.

It might be worth getting a reservation on for a Pure or Legende, so you're on the first list that Tim would look at for any available vehicles.

Looking forward to next week as I’m in the Marseille area and going to pass by the Alpine Centre there to hopefully get my first sit in an A110.

Then count down the days till late summer

Drove a Blanc Solaire Alpine A110 above Marseille today - first drive in one and it’s simply stunning - most impressive aspect is the suspension it glides in town and then hooks up when out on country roads.

Very impressed - photos don’t do the Bleu Alpine and Blanc Solaire justice ... 2 fantastic colours.

Great welcome by RRG Marseille .

Looking good Rob! I'm sure yours will drive just as good in the highlands, when you pick it up next month

Have had a good look around a Pure here at Classic Le Mans which is what I'll go for. Very impressed. The guys on stand were very welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed chatting with them. Looking forward to confirming my spec.

Here are a few photos of a Blue A110 parked at Goodwood. Stunning in blue.

Thought you all might like to see some of the pictures I took, whilst on the Alpine stand at Goodwood FOS. The Legende looked awesome in Grey, with Brown Leather interior and the GT4 was something else!

It was great to see some of you there, I hope you had a good time and enjoyed seeing the cars up close and personal.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

It looked quite subtle in the dark gray, rather than striking in the blue or white.
Spoke to the guy from Acton, he was very nice too.

Glad you liked it, Simon. My geography of the south isn't great but I think you must have spoken to John Fuggles from our London West Alpine Centre, who is always very approachable and knowledgeable on all things Alpine.

It was good to see all Alpine Centre's being well represented, with the exception of Winchester...even Harry flew down from Glasgow for a couple of days.

We had a great day at Goodwood, many thanks to Ian @ Manchester.

Had a sit in the A110 and I can confirm that even at 6'6" I found it a comfortable place to be.
The car is really nicely finished and the quality looks pretty good.

Very much looking forward to a drive now!

Great Photos - love the contrast on the doors of the Legende.

What were the best times for the A110 and the GT4 up the hill?

Don't know much about Goodwood FOS but think the majority of the cars are not entered in the times runs.
Mike Skinner though! WTG!

They didn't put either of the cars up the hill for the time trials. Alpine didn't think it was necessary, in the same way they also won't be doing any official laptimes at the Nurburgring.
