I added two car/truck models to liven up the factory and team track scenes, a Volvo N 88 and Renault R4 van. I am currently working on 10+ scenery projects at the same time, so images of the new arrivals on Valkenveld have to be shot at a later stage.

The Renault 4, also known as the 4L (pronounced "Quatrelle"), is a hatchback economy car produced by the French automaker Renault between 1961 and 1992. It was the first front-wheel drive family car produced by Renault. The car was launched at a time when several decades of economic stagnation were giving way to growing prosperity and surging car ownership in France. The first million cars were produced by 1 February 1966, less than four and a half years after launch. Eventually over eight million were built, making the Renault 4 a commercial success because of the timing of its introduction and the merits of its design. It was exceptionally spacious for its size, and although originally marketed as a small estate car, it is now regarded as the first mass-production hatchback car. Source: wikipedia

The Volvo N 88 heavy duty truck was introduced in 1965 as successor to the Volvo Titan. The N 88 retained the Titan's cab, but featured a new engine, fully synchronized eight-speed gear box and improved chassis and suspension. The 9,602 cc engine produced 200 bhp (149 kW). Source: wikipedia
