C'est en effet une Tiger de 1965 avec ses baguettes chromées, son monogramme "Tiger" et son V8 Ford de 4,2litres!

The Sunbeam Tiger is based on the Alpine but didn't use 'Alpine' as part of the name.

The versions are:
Mk.I : June 64 to Aug 65
Mk.Ia : Aug 65 to Dec 66
Mk.II : Dec 66 to Jun 67

As it is a 1965 TV series this must be a Mk.I.

Depending on what "litterature" you consider Alexander, in mine it says "Alpine Tiger" but maybe yours is more accurate on that point?

Maybe it depends on the country? I remember that the Alpine name is not owned by the same companies in all countries...

Not necessarily!
I usually check the marque clubs, as in book I usually find a lot of mistakes. Web-pages are easier to maitain and correct, if needed.

They certainly owned the rights in the UK, else they hadn't used those names at all. But it might be a different story for France with the Renault Alpines on the market.

I've read that there was also the opposite problem: Renault cannot sell Alpine in UK since Alpine is not their property there...

This car was the lead charactor's (Maxwell Smart) car for the first few years of the show. It should have 4 stars. The car was known as a sunbeam tiger in most countries. I beleive in one european country (perhaps Germany) it was called an Alpine V8 due to ownership rights to the Tiger name there.

Could be the Messerschmitt Tiger, the very fast 4-wheel version of the plexiglass-roof bubblecar?

Also the one in /vehicle_357276-Volkswagen-Karmann-Ghia-Typ-14.html - some of these do'nt have whitewalls, so probably a different car.

The sunbeam tiger was sold as the alpine 260 and alpine 289 (for the mkii tiger) in Europe.

For get smart they used a tiger for normal schemes the cars used in stunts and crashes etc tended to be alpine doubles with a couple of tiger details.

The car with ram over riders and engine bay mounted popup gun was an alpine as the tiger engine bay was to crowded for the mechanism.
