IN The recent Motor Show in Birmingham should have stolen a march over the Mondiale de L'Automobile which opened in Paris last week. The French market is also showing signs of a downturn, but this did not stop any of Europe's major manufacturers from exhibiting and most saved something for the occasion.

If the show belongs to any individual manufacturer it is Renault, which is on its home ground. Renault has now formally acquired a 919k stake in Mack, giving it the degree of control it will need to turn the ailing fortunes of the American truck builder around.

The Renault AE was displayed in a wide range of metallic colours. It is already extremely popular in France, and Renault Trucks at Dunstable has taken orders t-or nine 500 models and five 380s.

600km where low sulphur fuel is used. It costs about 3,(X)0, but according to Volvo it will last the life of the vehicle.

Dars Euromaster, based on the 95-400 ATi, is designed to operate with the latest 13.6m trailer length. A standard 3.8 wheelbase Space Cab version incorporates a high level of equipment.

Right now there are 60 Renault engineers working on the joint van project with Daf at Birmingham. The new van range, which is expected in the mid1990s, will extend up to 4.5 tonnes.

Mercedes has taken its LN cab and placed it on a heavier chassis for operation at 15/17 tonnes.

Iveco gave its uprated TurboStar and Turbotech ranges their first public airing.

lveco also has plans to extend the Daily weight range from 4.5 tonnes to 6 tonnes.
