Introducing the industrial transport engine: a musical score for 841 parts weighing 600 kilos

Did you know that a truck engine weighs over 600 kg and requires 6 hours of work by humans and robots?

While the first internal combustion engines were built at the end of the 19th century, Marius Berliet, an enthusiastic self-taught mechanic, built the first model of his very own engine in 1894 in Lyon.
More than 120 years later, the Renault Trucks plant continues to make steady progress in terms of performance and its ability to meet the requirements of modern-day society, building engines for trucks, buses, construction equipment, boats and industrial machines, all of which comply with the most stringent antipollution standards.

You're sure to be amazed.
