Gloucestershire-based Andy Lee Transport Ltd has taken delivery of the UK’s first Renault Trucks T01 Racing Special Used Truck Edition.
Based on a Renault T480 6x2, it has been redesigned by the team at Renault Trucks’ Halle du Design, and reconditioned in full in the UK by Used Truck by Renault Trucks.
The sporty-looking special edition is inspired by the world of racing cars and joins 12 other used Renault Trucks in Andy Lee Transport’s 28-strong fleet.
MD, Andy Lee, said: “As a family of motor racing enthusiasts, we have a long-standing affinity with motorsport. My son, Antony Lee, races F1 Stock Cars and I’ve been involved in motorsport myself since I was 16 years old. So, with our passion in mind, the Renault Trucks T01 Racing Special with its sporty looks appealed to us from the word go. We always like to stand out from the crowd with our trucks and we wanted something a bit different again this time; the T01 Racing Special with its good looks was the perfect new addition to our fleet.”
Three paint jobs have been applied to the white truck with shimmering black, flaming red and tangy yellow details joining reflective stickers that give a nod to the world of racing.
The T01 Racing Special joins the likes of the Quartz, Satin and Lightening Editions exclusively offered by Used Trucks by Renault Trucks.
“As well as being a great-looking truck, it’s essential that it’s up to the job too. Renault Trucks’ inspection review, as well as the refurbishment with genuine parts, ensures reliability and minimal down time and, together with the one-year manufacturer’s warranty, we had overall peace of mind,” Lee explained.
“We wanted a truck that would turn heads wherever it goes. People always stop and comment; it’s a great ambassador for the brand and a talking point about the company and the work we do. We are absolutely delighted.”
