It's always a treat to see cars that aren't available in the States. I can't think of anything remotely like it ever being available here. trophy image

About

Rare car built for Renault by Matra under contract with Renault which allowed Renault to take the Espace back in-house.
Designed as a very high-spec Coupe-MPV - 2-door, 4/5 seat, 2.0 Turbo or 3.0 V6. Aimed at "... parents whose kids have left home but still want an MPV-style, prestige vehicle." In fact, that market didn't materialise and production stopped after just 8,270 had been built (447 in RHD for the UK), following which Matra car production was, sadly, closed down.

Gained some extra fame from appearance in film "Children of Men".

Has now become a "future classic", mainly because of it's unusual and futuristic design. Believed to be just 4,000 left running in the world.

Now registered as M444TRA.

Sadly now sold to George in Belgium, who seems like a nice chap and will take care of Ava.

Specs

2-door Coupe/MPV
3.0 V6 24v
5-speed Auto with "Tiptronic" type option
230bhp

Factory Options

"Privilege" spec - Fully loaded

Mods

Avon uni-directional tyres (replacing Michelins)
Stainless exhaust (cat-back)
