The "New Generation" of heavy haulers
In the seventies and eighties Mercedes designed a sequence of trucks that were much different than those being produced anywhere else in the world. They were smaller, lighter and more aerodynamic. They consumed far less fuel while still allowing the towing of extremely heavy (20+ ton) loads. This was partially due to the use of a simple roof spoiler that reduced drag and partially to the extremely efficient V-8 engine that powered the truck. Kit features detailed chassis and suspension, multi-part engine, tilting cab and decals for 10 countries.
