    Would like to know what caused this, wrong turn signals lenses maybe?

    Did anyone catch the price in Euros for the new Alpine, I missed it. I wonder if my son will let me park it at his place in France, then I could visit for 6 months each year and drive a real sports car. :)

    As for the crush, illegal cert papers I suspect, not a light enough shade of gray.

    :)

    Man what fun driving around in France in an A110. Get a Monte Carlo rally road-book & drive all the stages. Don't miss the Stelvio pass either. :arf:

    From what I recall that car came here & then used a title from an another old Mini. It's a shame that happened, but if you work the system sometimes you get caught.

    1,080 kg curb weight (2,381 lbs) seems pretty nice.
    Looks to be €58,500 in France for the limited edition launch special..... ~$62.4k USD

    This video provides some perspective on the Alpine zealotry (lust) that comes out in folks, for those who may be curious about the historical inspiration for this new model... :beer

    Always liked the Alpine 110, there's just something about them that speaks to you.

    Its growing on me the more I look at it. Also now I understand why they added the extra lights.
