Looks like the Alpine sports car revival we’ve been waiting for is finally almost there to enter production. The company has just opened 1,955 reservation spots for the launch edition version of the car, the Alpine Premiere Edition, which in finished guise will cost between €55,000 and €60,000 in France.
The way you can reserve yourself an Alpine Premiere Edition is through a dedicated app and an initial payment of €2,000. The app allows you to reserve the car, chose your favorite paint job from the only three available colors: ‘Bleu Alpine’ (Blue), ‘Noir Profond’ (Black) or ‘Blanc Solaire’ (White), and also choose a number from 1 to 1,955 to appear on a plaque fixed to the centre console. As you may have already guessed, 1,955 is the year Alpine company was established.
Alpine is currently accepting reservation requests from customers in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
“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.”
