    Renault Vel Satis

    So, Renault have finally realised how sh7te the Vel Satis actually was and are ceasing production [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/piss.gif[/img]

    About bloody time. Apparently the Avantime is pedicted to follow suit. Shame the Megane isn't been canned with the rest of the whacky crappy looking excuses for motor vehicles [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Wow, it was a hideous car but had loads of kit fitted as standard, they have only been building it a short while, and the new Megane is just as bad. At least they have seen the error of their ways!

    The manufacturers of these 'art nouveau' cars are designing them with their home market in mind ie France and Italy. Both countrys are famous for their fashion of course and just think of some of the monstrosities that you see at the catwalk shows (the clothes not the women!). The car designers are taking a leaf out of the clothes designers book that is producing designs that are 'funky' and 'different', problem is 'funky' and 'different' generally means that the car looks totally crap!

    The only mainstream manufacturer that gets away with producing cars that are a bit different IMHO is Alfa Romeo. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
