Who is going to buy this over an Alpine and £30,000 change??

It's too dear. Shame, looks good
treu, but with the Jannarelly you have 3 cars in one, cabrio, targa, coupe, so you can use it for more occasions?
Hardly - Ok so it has a cabrio (although no mention of where the roof panels go if you take them off). It has no luggage space to speak of - and would be very uncomfortable any journey more than a quick blast. And no-one in a dress / skirt will ever consider getting in or out....! And driving it in winter on freshly gritted roads with pretty much open front tyres........

So no - the Alpine is far more usable for far more occasions. I owned a Lotus Elise S for a number of years - loved it - but definitely not a car for all occasions...But I still like it.

good news en pictures, not to scary price tag.

I bet when you want to buy such car in the Netherlands it will be at least 1.5x that price due to taxes (Co tax)

just like say the new Porsche Cayman GT4 718
in Germany from under 100.000 euro, in NL around 150.000 euro...same car just because of the high tax on that sort engines.

That Autocar article has remarkably little detail about the car. I would certainly not have guessed it was mid-engined from reading that, or that it was a genuine light weight.

If it’s mid-engined then WTH is in that long nose?...

That’s why it’s so important for the article to explain this. If you just look at the pics you’d assume it’s front engined.

I like the long nose, even though it’s not what we expect when the engine is behind the driver.

Although this is a very different chassis design, the Atom shows how a long nose doesn’t have to have anything in it.
