If you're a fan of the upcoming Alpine sports car and live in western Europe, know that the company is now accepting orders for the Premiere Edition models in Europe. If you're in Japan, Alpine will accept orders starting in 2017. The Premiere Edition cars will be the first 1,955 vehicles off the line, a number chosen to commemorate the year the Alpine brand was founded.

Reserving one of these cars requires downloading the reservation app and making a payment of €2,000. Though specific pricing for the car wasn't given, Alpine says its new sports car will cost "between €55,000 and €60,000." (That's roughly $58,000-63,000 at today's exchange rates.) Those that drop the cash on a reservation can have any color they want as long as it's black, blue, or white. Alpine also says that the Premiere Editions will come with some other "exclusive appointments," but didn't give specifics. The only detail revealed about the car's specifications was the rough estimate of a 4.5 second 0-62 mph time that the company has already talked about.

The good news is that we likely won't have to wait long for detailed specifications. Alpine says it will deliver the first cars at the end of 2017, and it will show the final production model in the first quarter of that year. Based on past spy shots, it looks like the car will be nearly identical to the beautiful concept shown in February. While we wait for the fully revealed car, we can at least enjoy seeing some camouflaged prototypes in the promo video above that Alpine released with its ordering announcement.
