If anyone recalls MY03AVA being sold to a museum in America, it was sold to this motor museum that specialises in preserving and displaying European cars. It is not on display at the moment, but I have been in contact with DavidY, a member of our club and who is also on the museum board.
David has written:-
"I drove it for a few weeks earlier in the year - my personal daily driver ... and the Avantime got LOTS of attention, maybe more than just about any other modern car I've driven regularly. (I'm currently in a Megane R26, and it's practically ignored!)"
Perhaps we should have warned him that it is difficult to go back to an 'ordinary' car after driving the Avantime!
