Damn The Alpine A110 For Looking Too Good

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.

Don’t even bother bringing a sports car to market if its just got stupid paddles that let the uncoordinated and incompetent pretend they can drive. Yea, I said it. And so did Lamborghini’s marketing guy. Paddles are for people who can’t drive.

And its a shame, because if an A110 replacement was offered over here, I’d be in line. I’ve got the money, I know the heritage... but I’m not going to sacrifice driving enjoyment for that bullshit.
