The Alpine A110 squatting under heavy braking up the hill at Goodwood.

It is increasingly clear that America is not good enough for the like-an-Alfa-4C-but-livable Alpine A110. Damn it. Damn it to hell.

The Alpine A110 not only sounds better than it has any right to, but it also looks significantly too good for a car that will not be available for purchase in the United States until two and a half decades from now.

As we will all likely have been nuclear wintered into a Mad Maxian gas-scarce future by then, the A110 is effectively forbidden fruit for us Americans. Damn, and damn again.
