When did they stop making the Safrane??

I've driven Safranes (and before that, Renault 25's) for the past 20 years. I think the Safrane is a fantastic car and if they were still being made, I'd buy another one tomorrow! But therein lies my question....

In my mind's eye, I was under the impression that the Safrane was discontinued at least 8 years ago. However, yesterday I was talking to someone who claims to have a 3.0 litre Safrane V6 that's just over 3 years old. Could that be true? Does anyone know when the last ones were made?

Wiki says 2000, which sounds about right to me. If it was wrong, then somebody would have corrected it.

Apparently, it was replaced by the Vel Satis in 2001
