Roughly 200 show trucks showed up last weekend to the European truck racing finale in Le Mans, France, including several dozen American-style cabs. 

You can see my live coverage from the show — including photos, videos and tweets — here, here and here.

The photos below are good representations of how show trucks are done in Europe and a good sample of ones I saw at the show. 

They still like chrome and lights, but the cabover style gives them a unique look, compared to American-style trucks. 

Also, European show truck builders love to adorn their trucks with mural-style graphics, and one of the main show truck categories stems from that tendency. Stay tuned this week and next for more photo galleries and videos from the show:
