Luke from Northern Ireland's first Renault Vel Satis, a 3.0 dV6 Initiale with cream leather and 86k miles, bought in November 2009. Luke had just turned 18 and wanted to finally own a Vel Satis of his own, after seven years of getting far too excited when seeing one on the road. It was a dream, the best Vel he's had yet (as of January 2011!), it really started Luke's huge passion for these luxury French beasts. The engine is incredible, the gearbox is smooth and the Initiale wants for nothing. Luke got loads of comments and looks when driving it – especially in the school car park, where it was towering over his mates Renault Clios, Vauxhall Corsas and the like! Luke is pleased to say that 'HJZ' has moved on to his auntie in Birmingham, the Midlands. She came over for a holiday, fell in love with the Vel and had to have it. It's now pottering around the West Midlands attracting just as much attention as it did for Luke in Northern Ireland. Luke says this Vel Satis, his first, has been a faultless car and NOTHING has gone wrong (touch wood). His aunt would like two, so Luke will be on the hunt for another Vel Satis for her again soon!
