Is that a large orange bottle-opener, or does it dispense something?

This is what it is for....took some finding....more than 20 Minutes of Hub Nut doing his review and never mentioned it once. Ditto Robert LLewelyn on Fully Charged and several more....so this is what it is for....

Aha! Somewhere to hang the take-away bag, too.
The bright orange and grey-black reminds me of some sort of d.i.y. thing - maybe a B&D Workmate ?

Wasn't that what the choke was used for on older cars? Nice to see they have brought it back.

Quite right James, I remember the former SWMBO being horrified when she got her first car with an automatic choke, an astra, and realised she had nowhere to put the chinese!! :-D

A car within a car. Looks like it's been swallowed up!

I once really fancied an Avantime - not so long ago they could be picked up for very little money...

They are powered by the PR V6 ES9 engine, known in a Renault as the L7X. I believe they have a ZF 4HP20 autobox too...

All very desirable :D
