My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

The all new Alpine sports car will kick off with a Limited Edition premiere edition.
1,955 numbered Alpine ‘Première Edition’ limited-edition cars now available for reservation
Starting today, Alpine is opening reservations for its ‘Première Edition’- an exclusive limited-edition version of its upcoming production car. Reservations can be made via Alpine’s bespoke app downloadable from Alpine’s official website: www.alpinecars.com.
Production of the limited-edition version is restricted to 1,955 cars, a reference to the year when Alpine founder Jean Rédélé first established the company.
“Alpines made such a mark because of the elegance of their designs, their nimble handling and their memorable successes in world class motor racing and rallying,” says Alpine’s Managing Director Michael van der Sande. “The interest that the announcement of Alpine’s return has generated across the globe inspired us to give sports car enthusiasts and Alpine fans early opportunity to reserve the new car.
“The Première Edition versions of the new model will be the first to come off the line and we wanted to allow Alpine fans to choose the number of their car.”
The Alpine Première Edition will feature exclusive appointments, while its price and technical specification will be revealed in the first quarter of 2017. Its tax-paid price in France will be between €55,000 and €60,000.
Its standstill-to-62mph (100kph) time will be 4.5 seconds and delivery to customers is scheduled to start from late 2017.
Reserving the Alpine Première Edition using the bespoke app and making an initial payment of €2,000 will allow customers to select their preferred number – from 1 to 1,955 – depending on availability. The number will appear on a plaque fixed to the centre console. Customers will also be able to specify the colour of their car from a choice of three finishes: ‘Bleu Alpine’ (Blue), ‘Noir Profond’ (Black) or ‘Blanc Solaire’ (White).
Customers in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan*, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom will be able to reserve the Alpine Première Edition.
