With most readers of this shambolic corner of the internet coming from America (despite how often we poke you), many of you will know Renault best for the ‘Le Car’, or the Renault 5 to the rest of the world. A small car in Europe (and a tiny one in the U.S.*), it’s probably where Renault’s strengths lie, and the 5’s replacement – the Clio – is now the best selling B-segment car in Europe.
However Renault don’t just make small cars, they also make tractors and agricultural equipment (plus there are Renault branded trucks too, but confusingly these aren’t produced by Renault at all, rather Volvo Trucks. Which aren’t part of Volvo either…).
Anyway, Renault do make tractors, like this rather neat looking Renault 155 by Flickr’s keko007, complete with a multitude of smooth building techniques and a big red, er… thing, on the back. There’s more to see of keko’s creation at his Renault 155 album on Flickr – click the link above to grow some wine, or whatever it is French tractors are used for.
*The car was the same size of course, it’s the relativity which varies.
