Première of the MAN TGX D38- “100 Years Edition” – Stainless steel bars, flaming lion and fully equipped for comfort
MAN has produced a real highlight to mark the product anniversary: the TGX D38 “100 Years Edition”. This flagship with its 520 or 560 HP and equipment features should really appeal to those customers with a genuine passion for the product: highly-polished stainless steel front and side bars with integrated LED accent lighting define its look. The huge light bar with four halogen high-beam headlights and the steps in the cab entry also come in stainless steel.
Two large flaming lions spanning the doors and the vehicle on both sides dominate the exterior. The lion is also featured on the seat covering in the cab.
Première at MAN Trucknology days
Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Director of Sales & Marketing, is proud of the new lion which will celebrate its première at MAN Trucknology Days from 19 to 21 March in Munich: “The ‘100 Years Edition’ offers the unique performance and efficiency of the TGX D38 with the added features of a real eyechatcher – and all ex works. The first customers will be able to take receipt of their very own dream machine in July 2015. I am already looking forward to seeing these trucks on the street”.
The details of the “100 Years Edition”.
MAN has produced new paint colours for this special model. MAN stone grey metallic, MAN D38 red, MAN steel blue metallic and MAN crystal white metallic create the perfect stage for the red and orange flaming lion.
The special edition will also catch the eye with the high-lustre details on the wheels: The dura bright EVO aluminium wheels will permanently retain their shine due to a special surface coating with the finishing touch of polished stainless steel caps for the wheel bolts.
Enhanced driver comfort is at the heart of the interior of the 100 Years Edition. The “Plus” infotainment package brings together the full range of features for driving and rest times with sound system, MAN Media Truck Advanced navigation radio with specialist truck-navigation software, USB input for music and a charger source for smartphones, infra-red remote control and Bluetooth hands free system.
Optimised sitting, resting and sleeping are the main focus of the driver comfort packages. The packages come as options either for one driver or equipped for two. Airsprung comfort seats for the driver and co-driver with lumbar vertebra support, shoulder adjustment and heating offer the perfect support for long drives. Sun blinds, reading lights, foot supports and armrests for driver and co-driver are also included. A multi-function steering wheel, independent heating and a coolbox with table complete the specification of the interior.
Exclusivity ex works
MAN is launching the “100 Years Edition” throughout Europe. The vehicles are built to high MAN quality standards at the plant in Munich and fitted out in the Truck Modification Center. The department for customer-specific special conversions has been connected directly to truck assembly at the plant in Munich as of 2015 and takes on the trucks as soon as they reach the end of the line.
