Modelmaniac,

As far as I know, Renault is not a specialist in high power engines, most of their trucks being powered in the eighties by a 280 or 320/350Hp engine.
For example, when power over 420Hp was required, their Magnums COE trucks were equipped with a Mack engine (Mack being then part of Renault Trucks), and I think that the most powerful engine offered these days is the Volvo 500+hp (Renault being now part of Volvo Trucks).

I hope it helps.

Modelmaniac,

If you look at the Renault Trucks range today, there is no offer for bonneted truck anymore: https://www.renault-trucks.fr/
But as this type of truck is still favored in Africa or Middle-East, the second-hand market is now the only solution, and I know that "old" bonneted French trucks are shipped regularly from Europe to these countries, mainly Africa.

I hope it helps.

Another item in Pascal collection: Volvo F16 8x4 tractor (A. Smith kit) and Nicolas STA45 2-line tank transporter (MVI kit), loaded with a Clark 4x4 wheeled loader (Conrad model).
The dual-tyred 3-axle rear arrangement (1st axle of the tridem generally non-driven) was one of solutions favored by UK heavy haulers in the nineties, to comply with the 5th wheel load capacity resulting from upgraded STGO rules.
