Luke from Northern Ireland loves Renault Vel Satis cars! He first got a 3 litre diesel V6 Initiale, and then he got this, his 2nd Vel Satis - a 2.2 dCi Privilège with leather and sat nav. But this one had issues! The poor car was a taxi (mini cab) up until it lost the use of third, fourth and reverse gears at 107,000 miles. It limped into the car auction where Luke work in Northern Ireland, with a reserve of £500. Nobody bid, it was unwanted. Luke was cheeky and offered the seller £200, which was accepted. The car has sat to this day at his friend's breakers yard, waiting for a gearbox to come along. There's a lot of profit to be made in breaking a Renault Vel Satis but, it's a Vel Satis, and Luke loves them so much he's not killing one! Pic 5 of 5
