It's Game Over For The Renault MagnumS

Europe's funkiest truck family was born in 1990, but due to new emission standards, Renault is getting ready to turn the page on it. It's a sad moment for all the truck enthusiasts out there.

The Renault AE was revolutionary in 1990 because it had a flat floor and tall cabin, making it the most comfortable truck on the market. A year later, the Magnum was voted Truck of the Year. The series had two major facelifts in 1997 and in 2005, when it also got a new chassis. Two years ago, Renault launched a limited edition model commemorating the original AE, while the last two Magnums rolled off the Bourg-en-Bresse production lines at the end of last month. One of them was delivered to hauliers Robert Chabbert at Bourg-en-Bresse, and the other will be presented to the Berliet Foundation Conservatory.

The replacement is Renault's new Euro 6 compliant truck range called the "T".

Does that stand for Transformers?
