The Black Amber

The wife says it sounds like some sort of rare spider. She is right about the rare bit, only 100 are available for purchase world wide. Its not a nasty breed of snake, its not a new variation of a well known Ozzie lager, it is in fact the next Scania special edition, designed by Svempa.

The exterior may be stunning and will definitely make you one of an elite club, but the interior makes me think i’d never want to get out of the cab. The big seats, the multimedia package that will rival any youth in your local McDonalds car park, it just looks perfect! Right after i have written this i am off to check last nights Lotto ticket!! Released back on the 17th of January i hope there is one left for me.
