So my fetish is the Safrane V6 RXE Phase 1,a car I remember brand new when lauched as I worked for Renault and just loved all the toys it had in 1992,forward to 2007 and I had found my dream Safrane,early cars didn,t have a sunroof or drivers airbag,almost everyone had cloth that was Feb 93 in UK,Jan 94 and all had sunroofs and drivers airbag,i HAD to have one with every single option even Renault care the aftercare warranty.
My car has every single UK option,leather,CD player(double DIN with graphics)and the mega rare ergomatic inflatable front seats,i have added a few foreign spec items to go above the UK top spec with rear limo footrests,glass partition behind rear seats and Baccara suitcase fitted under rear parcel shelf,i doubt there is a more loaded Safrane in the UK,the electric steering column,self levelling suspension and electric individual rear seats just add to Renaults brave attempt to make a luxury car for the U.K,it was at one time Renaults most expensive car and I always wanted to own one since day one.
My car is a Renault UK registered car(most are)and was a Renault publicity car used in the brochures,i have the letter stating the chassis number and its use by Renault,it was a MASSIVE flop for Renault and they only sold 600 RXE in the U.K countless electrical issues and gearbox problems condemmed most.
Now only a few exist,i have all the history,3 sets of keys,a complete bookpack with full history to this day,original keyring,tax disc holder etc and even the Safrane courtesy hotline card to ring,i have the Renaultcare card in the tax disc holder from 1994 and then theres all the brochures,presspacks,showroom items,posters XR25,and mountains of parts I have stored away,lots of them brand new,it goes on and on.....
But its a rare car,but no-one cares about them,rare but not desirable!
