Renault Avantime. Just different.

ER Classics Desktop 2022

The Renault Avantime is not just any car. It has a distinct design. The car was even called 'unconventional' when it was introduced in 2001. This beautiful gray 18-year-old Frenchman was born in 2002.

As car enthusiasts, we can appreciate the quirkiness of the Renault Avantime. In any case, the deviating shape and the remarkable appearance attract the necessary attention. In a few minutes you will see how complete strangers give their opinion about this classic.   

Picture the charm

"What a space car, unobstructed view all around, and for a man or woman of age and easy entry" "You can distinguish yourself because of the 'looks'." There was a nice discussion about classic cars where the heart beats faster. In short: top conversations about cars from the past. Cars that are increasingly cherished, whether they get real classic status or not. 

This Renault Avantime has in any case stylistically played a role in the upper middle class around the year 2001. The short production time has also ensured that it is now an exclusive passenger car. (Although the registration as a body type indicates it as a station wagon.) The charm of the 'unlike any other' continues to draw.

  1. Just like the Vel Satis ……. this Renault also does not meet my preferences.
    But I have such a soft spot for these French exotics.
    On the Gazelle to work, I always look at the Avantime, which is parked a little further away

    • Wow!!!
      Distinctive in the crowd!
      Both in terms of model and luxury.
      Gave me a few times
      to an Avantime in the wild.
      Hear and say that the quality would be below par?
      Or has this been used by the persons concerned so as not to buy it?
      Either pure jib, jealousy and / or cowardice?
