Tribute to a great car

This is my tribute to a great car, and to a great designer, Patrick Le Quément.

The Avantime, of which only 4,500 units went into customers' hands from 2001 o 2003, is a unique car and undoubtedly one of my all-time favorites. I can't wait until I have enough dough together to get my own 3.0-V6 one.

Check out the www.avantime-gallery.org fan site with many beautiful personal Avantimes coming from all over the world.

I hope you liked it and wish everyone a nice AvanTime!

  2. Hi Marco,

    Looks great! I am happy to see that you like Avantime that much. I also loved it and got my own. You'll get it one day, and then you will go crazy about it even more. I did :)

  3. Awesome car you have, and even with pack exception! Wow!
    So how is your 2.0 going so far? Does it cope good with the car's weight?


  4. Thank you, glad you like it!
    It was not easy to find the desired package and the colour of the car, since it is not possible to order a new one. I wanted the “deep see green” Avantime, my favourite colour combination.

    I was driving the 3.0 before (same colour of course), and that was nice power. I must say that I am very satisfied with the 2L turbo engine of Renault. Turbo has a great response already from 2000 U/min and 163 HP is just enough. It is also more economical (fuel and tax). I prefer to see Avantime as the cruiser than the raiser. Before deciding which engine to get, I did some research and the 2L turbo had very good remarks (even from German car magazines).

    To finally answer your question, yes it copes well with the weight of the car. :)

    BTW I like your car designs, great job!

  5. Thank you for the information! Yeah, it's already hard to find a good Avantime at all. Personally, I'd love to get the red pack exception in combination with a manual V6.

    But then again, I guess I'll have to try all the engines, I read the 2.2dCi has even more torque than the Turbo. So it's also a possibility.
    No doubt about the Avantime being a chiller's car, but still I don't want my car to lack in sportiness and autobahn-performance, so I'm really excited to experience what the V6 feels like! I hope it will satisfy me! :)

    And hey, thanks for the props!
