This car is the 2 litre turbo version which is plenty powerful enough and more economical than the V6 (IMHO!)
I once encountered another in Bristol. It was the same model as mine. Unfortunately, I was not driving the Avantime at the (Avan)time.
We have driven it to France on several occasions and there the Avanime is a little more common. I managed to park next to one in La Franqui (a pretty little seaside town in the Languedoc). It was driven by a Brit!
This car is a bit of a design classic, was loved by the Top Gear team, was a sales failure and probably sent aerospace firm Matra to the wall!
