The Renault Vel Satis is a dramatically styled four-seat, high-technology coupe de ville with a windshield that extends almost to the extreme rear of the roof. Jean-Francois Venet, Executive Chief Designer for Renault's large cars, said the Vel Satis embraces several elements that indicate possible future design trends. These include its frontal styling with twin air intakes and a prominent position for a Renault badge, angular flanks, and distinctive "shoulder" treatment toward the rear and below the C-pillar. Renault sent its designers to London, Milan, and other major cities to bring back fresh ideas about architecture, furniture, fashion, and textiles that could be incorporated in Vel Satis.

The Vel Satis is also a technology demonstrator. Its two enormous, 1.78-m (5.8-ft), carbon-fiber doors open electrohydraulically on a patented hinge system that moves them out and forward. The result is that, at maximum arc, they extend no further than the doors of the little Renault Twingo hatchback but allow easy access to the Vel Satis' interior. The doors open at the touch of a pressure pad. The hood, which covers a newly developed, naturally aspirated, 3.0-L V6 gasoline engine, is also powered, as is the clamshell trunk lid. This theme of powered systems extends to the interior, with the seats incorporating laterally moving headrests to allow passengers to sleep more comfortably.

With its enormous glass area, the interior of the car is very light, but Renault admits that this is not viable for production. However, Venet explains that future Renault models will make increased use of glass, with the next generation Espace MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) particularly benefiting from the philosophy.

The steering wheel has a stationary hub, with built-in controls; only the rim of the wheel actually moves. The dashboard incorporates "jewel trays" instead of a conventional glove box. These swing out, with one containing an alphanumeric keyboard for operation of a PC. A telematic travel system uses a Pioneer DVD. Navigation and guidance information can be complemented by cultural information on an area as it is passed through. Neon lighting is used for the interior and for the rear lights, while the Valeo headlamps have an advanced optical bar system that Renault says have aspects in common with lighthouse technology. The car's tires are a development of Michelin's vertically anchored PAV technology.


Designed to celebrate Renault’s one-hundredth anniversary, Vel Satis is a luxury four-seater coupe which is avant-garde in its architecture and design. As with its predecessor Initiale, its concept embraces traditional conventions of luxury motoring with fond respect whilst encapsulating that free-spirited creativity which is the very essence of Renault.

Maintaining the theme, a production Vel Satis was launched in 2002.

Концепт-кар Vel Satis, представленный на Парижском мотор-шоу в 1998 году, был восхитителен. «Бесспорно достаточный» или «Достаточно быстрый» — так переводили название этого coupe de Ville журналисты, вспоминая латынь, тогда как на фирме им говорили, что название машины — всего лишь игра слов. Огромное лобовое стекло Vel Satis плавно переходило в стеклянную крышу и выглядело, по мнению разработчиков, как «хрустальная корона королевы красоты». Изящные фужеры известной марки «Saint Louis» в салоне взывали к триумфу стиля арт-деко 20 — 30-х годов. Этот концепт-кар считали «программным», в нем был зашифрован пластический ключ будущих серийных моделей.

Но даже серийный Vel Satis, хотя и позволил говорить о возрождении французского автомобильного дизайна, вызвал многочисленные споры. Этим и объясняется разница между прототипами, которые служат для проверки идей практикой испытаний, шоу-стопперами, предназначенными для разогрева покупателей перед недалеким дебютом уже готовой серийной модели, и концептуальными образцами. Назовем ли мы их по-американски dream-cars («Автомобили мечты») или по-итальянски fuore-serie («Несерийными»), смысл останется тем же: эти машины демонстрируют ход мысли, направление поисков разработчиков. По ним мы судим о компании порой гораздо жестче, чем по серийной продукции.
