Renault Trucks have joined forces with Renault Sport to create the T High Renault Sport Racing.
This limited series –limited to just 99 trucks - boasts a sporty look, and features Sirius yellow paint, which is the iconic colour of Renault Sport Racing Formula One, together with the yellow and black check that forms the graphic identity of Renault Sport models.
Different textures and shades of black contrast with the yellow: the wing mirrors of the T High Renault Sport Racing have been given a coat of shiny black paint, as have the diamond and the radiator grill. To highlight the sporting design of the vehicle, the yellow and black check features again on the side deflectors. Last but not least, each vehicle of this limited series has a numbered black ID plate.
The cabin has also been specially designed, featuring yellow and black colours to match the exterior. The Recaro seats and steering wheel are both covered in black leather with yellow stitching. The bunk and floor mat also have yellow stitching, whilst the panoramic dashboard has a carbon finish and ventilators are circled in yellow. And to complete the sporting look, the seat belt is fitted with a yellow sleeve.
The truck will be powered by a 13.0-litre 6-cylinder turbo-diesel motor that produces 390kw and 2500nm of torque at just 1,000rpm. It makes use of Renault's Optidriver transmission which features 12 forward gears and three reverse gears.
The truck will be produced at Renault’s Bourg-en-Bresse plant in France. No pricing has been revealed as yet. This is no doubt an interesting partnership between Renault Trucks and Renault Sport, seeing as Volvo Trucks owns the French manufacturer's trucking division.
