dsl wrote Maybe even better than an Alpine, as it looks like a badge on the bonnet = Tiger Series 2. And worth a page, even for such a slight glimpse.


Well, I bet on "convertible"…

A rare find anywhere, but France is a bit of a surprise home for one.

Given the filming location(France) and the Sunbeam script on the bonnet/hood, this car could be the European-market version of the Tiger, called the Alpine V8 MK II, differing from the North American and UK-market Tiger Mark II only in that it would have 'Alpine' script on the wings/fenders and boot lid/trunk lid.

I'll give you a link to the STOC club (Sunbeam Tiger Owners Club)(UK) page that discusses them. http://www.sunbeamtiger.co.uk/catswhiskers/CW68alpine260.htm

Further, if you use Facebook, there is a new 'group' that discusses them named Sunbeam Alpine V8 . It covers all three models (Sunbeam Alpine 260, Sunbeam Alpine V8, and Sunbeam Alpine V8 MK II. You may not already be a member to see the postings, so click on the 'join' button as you would to join any new group to you. To see a scan of the brochure for the model preceding the Alpine V8 MK II, just 'Google'image that phrase and you should find a photo of the cover in the first five or six rows(I did, about ten minutes ago). Let me know if none of these tips works for you.

Excellent info - thanks. I'm not a facebooker - it's one of those Devil's inventions which will eventually destroy mankind - but will try to follow those connections to see what emerges.

Ironic that Rootes could not use Tiger name in France and Germany due to trademark problems with local manufacturers - the mirror situation prevented Renault using Alpine name in UK for several models eg /vehicle.php?id=371770 .

I knew about the GTA model name, but never questioned why they didn't use 'Alpine' instead, so that was very interesting. Thanks for the link. Just as I'll take a quick look at a Renault GTA photo and think,'oh yes, Alpine', others will look at a Alpine V8 photo, and just think, 'yep, a Sunbeam Tiger'. No harm, no foul.

Concerning the proper name of the car in the TV episode of Confidences pour confidences. It was the version of the Sunbeam Tiger Mark II sold only in Europe. The model name Tiger could not be licensed in Europe by Sunbeam at the time because another manufacturer previously had secured the rights.
