Renault honors Formula One links with Pro+ range limited series image

The new special edition Renault LCV range is part van and part motorsport aficionado, so it’s ready to handle almost anything.

It appears vans and the world of Formula One has something in common – or so Renault thinks. So they decided to announce the Pro+ line at the Hanover International Commercial Vehicles Motor Show, which is a Formula One inspired version van of the LCV range – Kagoo, Trafic, and Master. The Renault Sport Formula One Team and Renault Pro+ are the developers of the limited edition models, which have new design characteristics such as black grilles and bumpers, satin black Renault logos and door mirrors, as well as black alloy wheels. There’s also a yellow-gold trim to highlight the side panels, as well as the grille, doors, fog lights, and hub caps. Renault claims this asserts “an undeniably sporty look;” well, for a van, that is.

Inside designers were also very careful and there’s a satin-finished center console mated to a leather steering wheel and team-colored floor mats. These special edition vans will be trackside at future F1 events during the latter part of the 2016 season. They will assist in transportation of guests and journalists to the race, as well as team logistics and equipment hauling. They will then reach European dealerships starting early next year.
