H​e promised and he then delivered. James May said I could have a shot of his Alpine one day and – true to his word – he handed me the key for a trip into the country. Here's what happened!

  • I hope you didn't have one of those chocolate bars that make a mess.

  • I enjoyed that ( though I think May was true to his word, rather than his work). I’d have had an extra condition, put the seat back in my driving position at the end. Anyway.

    Which of the cars he’s ever owned would I have? Very hard choice. I always liked the red Porsche that he gave to his Dad, the 458 I have a sentimental attachment to & I liked the itchy Royce too. Maybe I’d go off piste & say his Honda c200, or another of his older Honda motorcycles, but you did say car.... the Alpine looks good, but for pure fun I might snaffle the beach buggy. Or just ask for a go in it. I can hear you saying ‘no’ now can’t I ?

  • Alpine A110 would be my choice from Mr May’s cars past and present. Not the new S, the basic version with that beautiful Alpine blue paint. Lovely.
