I don't have much information, except that it was one of those "Everyone's got wind that there's a new model coming out, but we're still making the old ones... How the hell do we sell them?" kind of things. So they did the usual trick and bunged on a whole load of extras (metallic paint, alloys, climate, part leather with the option of full) and flogged them for around the price of the standard, lower spec model.

Reviews tend to suggest that they're less than reliable, making me think that the problems with the early L2 were probably just symptomatic of Renault's slump to an all-time low in build quality at the time. The car was introduced some time in 2000, but according to the following link, they proved unsaleable after the Paris Concorde crash, so they dumped the remaining right-hand drive ones onto the Irish fleet market.
