The New Renault Koleos 4x4 crossover, was used to provide a VIP service for 1000 guests at the British Grand Prix. The Koleos was used as the official transport from the Turweston Flight Centre to the Silverstone Circuit. By travelling cross-country, guests were able to get to the circuit without travelling on any road and avoiding any traffic hold-up.
Over the three days of the British Grand Prix, 50 Renault Koleos were used by the Turweston Flight Centre. Their Director, David Owen, said, "Renault's new 4x4 crossover Koleos certainly attracted a lot of interest with a 40% increase in VIP customers taking advantage of our shuttle service. Our guests benefited from the luxurious surroundings and MPV levels of comfort provided by Koleos, whilst its genuine off-road ability allowed it to travel the route to Silverstone Circuit in wet and difficult conditions without problem. We were absolutely delighted with the fleet of Koleos and wouldn't hesitate to shuttle our guests in Renault's Koleos should a future opportunity arise.”
Koleos went on sale in the UK on 4th July 2008 priced from £17,995 rising to £24,695, available in two diesel engines and in two or four-wheel drive form.Published 13 July 2008
