I saw one of these cars on the road and decided then and there that I had to have one. I found out there was a "Dale, Jr. Edition" too, but I like the look of the black and silver combination better than the red and silver. The blue and silver "Jeff Gordon Edition"? Who cares?
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.
Small-block V-8 and front wheel drive. It'll smoke 'em all the way down the block!
3.0 V6 24v
5-speed Auto with "Tiptronic" type option
It came pretty much loaded, with heated leather seats and XM Stereo.
"Privilege" spec - Fully loaded
