A nice surprise was this Berliet TR 350 in Le Centaure edition. It's from 1978 and was displayed by the Fondation Berliet.

This fair offcourse was focused on the new Renault truckseries. This is the C-serie for light duty construction, like the Premium Lander was. This 8x4 unit has a Marrel hooklift installed.

And this is the K-serie, meant for heavy duty construction. This 8x4 is equiped with a CIF tipper.

This pictures shows the differences. The K-serie has got a much heavier and more robust bumper that is also mounted higher.

Over the whole fair several versions could be seen, here is a K-serie 8x4 with a Meiller tipper.
