I’ve heard about European Police driving all sorts of sporty machinery: Porsches, BMW M Series, MGs, but this is the first time I’ve seen them utilizing an Alpine 110. Of course; it makes sense, as the word chauvinism is French in origin. And the Alpine A110 was fast enough to catch most cars of the time: its tuned Renault R16 engine made some 125hp, enough to propel the low and light “French Porsche” to 130 mph (210 kmh). But I see the chauvinism doesn’t apply to the motorcycle.
