Lot 303 - 2002 Renault Avantime Privilege
|Odometer reading||103,490 miles|
|Result||Sold - £5,207|
With design ahead of its time, this flagship boasted luxuries galore including a multitude of safety features and advanced engineering. Highlights included unique double-hinged pillarless doors allowing easy access to the front and rear seats even when tightly parked, the world's largest opening glass sunroof at the time featuring strengthened heat-reflecting tinted glass, theatre seating, galvanised steel chassis with aluminium upper structure, cavernous 530 litre boot, Xenon headlights and a 'grand air' button simultaneously opening all pillarless windows along with the glass panoramic roof at the press of one switch.
This top of the range three litre V6 'Privilege' is presented in metallic blue coachwork with a unique interior trim with brown carbon fibre capping to match the leather. Purchased by the current owner in 2017 and looked after without thought for cost ever since, we are informed much work has been done to make this example one of the best on the market today. Immaculate inside and out. The Avantime combines bold styling with exceptional comfort and a host of quirky and engaging features. When you overlay the GT flare and performance with such limited production numbers it is of little surprise that these hand finished statement cars are now gathering quite a collector following.
Guide Price £8,000 - £10,000
