The Sovereign Recovery Renault Midlum flatbed truck BU51TOW (illustrated parked in the same location last month on LTSV) was replaced in September 2015 by new FX65DWK. The newer vehicle is based on the Renault D12 model and features a crew-cab but lacks the crane fitted to BU51TOW. Truck design seems to be going through a new phase of wilful ugliness, the bumper/headlight area on this model being particularly weird. Several other recent models from Renault and Mercedes-Benz also have rather aggressive styling. Another feature on this vehicle is the re-use of the forward door components for the crew-cab doors (note the redundant wheelarch recesses), this being a common economy measure on double-cabbed lorries. Photographed near Metroline's CELF works in Perivale on 26th September 2015.
