Renault Vel Satis

Sitting in the shadow of the Avantime, the Vel Satis came from the same era of what we like to refer to as Renault's 2002 mid-life crisis breakdown. Designed as an alternative to the traditional big executive saloon - and a replacement for the drab Safrane - the Vel Satis had similar design cues as the Avantime, albeit toned down somewhat.

The odd and upright profile meant good interior head room but made for a very ungainly appearance. Renault embraced this unusual design, targetting the Vel Satis at less conformist and more forward thinking buyers. At least that's what it claimed.

It was not a popular seller, especially here in the UK, where big non-German saloons have always struggled to find buyers. As a result the Vel Satis is a rare beast and one we reckon is ripe to become a quirky classic.

What about the Jaguar X type 2.5 Auto all wheel drive?
Great to drive surely a future classic.
