Alpine have opened up the order books for the Première Edition, an exclusive limited-edition of its upcoming production sports car.
Production of the Première Edition is limited to 1,955 cars which is a reference to the year when Alpine founder Jean Rédélé started the company.
The price and technical specification will be revealed early next year and is expected to cost between €55,000 and €60,000. Delivery to customers is expected from late 2017.
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. 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,
said Alpine’s Managing Director Michael van der Sande.
Reserving the Alpine Première Edition is done by using the bespoke app and making an initial payment of €2,000. Customers will be allowed to select their preferred number (1 to 1,955) if still available. This number will appear on a plaque fixed to the centre console.
Customers can also make their colour choice from one of three finishes: ‘Bleu Alpine’ (Blue), ‘Noir Profond’ (Black) or ‘Blanc Solaire’ (White). Alpine have also said 0-62mph will take 4.5 seconds.
The Première Edition will be able to be ordered in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Reservations can be made on Alpine’s app that’s available from from Alpine’s official website: www.alpinecars.com.
