The Winners Circle 2018, Rob Margeit: Alpine A110

This is an unashamed love letter. From the moment I first laid eyes on the Alpine A110, I was smitten. It was December 2017 and I was in France for the international launch of the reborn Alpine brand. My first glimpse of it in the metal evinced all kinds of physiological reactions. Weak-kneed, sweaty-palmed and heart racing, it was like the moment you know you fell in love for the first time...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018

Welcome to the inaugural CarAdvice Winners Circle, our debut annual award program showcasing our editorial team’s motoring highlight releases of the year.

2019 Alpine A110 review: Australian launch at Targa High Country

Make no mistake, the new Alpine A110 is first and foremost an enthusiast’s car. Fast, light and extremely agile. But, it’s also a car that can be driven as a daily, not even fast, mind, but enjoyed all the same, by anyone. I’d go further and issue a warning to those keen enough to try it out – make sure you’ve got the coin for an on-the-spot purchase, because this thing is also thoroughly addictive and fast acting to boot...
