The Beast of BeneLux

In the wonderful world of Mercedes-Benz and the family network across the world of Daimler Trucks, we sell a huge variety of different marques and models from Freightliner to Western Star, to Bharat Benz and the vast array of FUSO chassis available, I have to say I still think the best of the lot is the new Actros / Actros 5 / MP5 or how ever you prefer to call it. There is also a loyal following of truck sales staff across the world that we get to meet and talk to via social media these day and I can’t wait to see how my Australian colleagues get on with MirrorCam on their road trains and also how long it will be before Freightliner catch up the Actros on fuel. Anyway I do digress slightly, so back to the top. I have come to know a salesman from Mercedes-Benz BeneLux who by all accounts sells some belters and has already clocked up 30 SLT’s, those are the heavy haulage tractors. So when Geert Groeninckx messaged me and asked if I can keep I secret of course I said yes! Luckily now the secret is out and I can share these photos with you. This is how Mercedes-Benz Trucks roll in Belgium and Luxembourg……..

The press release from Our BeneLux friend reads as follows, this is a direct translation into English and I will follow it up with the words for our European readers too;

Last Thursday, some customers and prospects of Mercedes-Benz BeLux were introduced to the sporty AMG range at the Circuit of Zolder during the Petrolhead Days. During the break, our new show truck also had the opportunity to drive a few laps. 🤩

Thanks to Olivier Dekens “OlliVision” and Ivan Tarantsov Photo for these beautiful pictures!

Afgelopen donderdag maakten enkele klanten en prospecten van Mercedes-Benz BeLux kennis met het sportieve AMG gamma op het Circuit van Zolder tijdens de Petrolhead Days. Tijdens de pauze kreeg onze nieuwe showtruck ook de kans om enkele ronden te rijden. 🤩

Bedankt aan Olivier Dekens “OlliVision” en Ivan Tarantsov Photo voor deze prachtige foto’s!

If you fancy a new Actros in LHD that will give you some of the best MPG or KM/Litre then the truck is still for sale. Remember it doesn’t just look good, it has world leading technology to make this the safest and most advanced truck on the market, as a 4×2 it can be stage 3 autonomous. It’s just this one looks better than most of the rest! What an awesome looking truck, 4×2 tractors still look proper to me especially when being chased by a couple of AMG’s!

Right who’s got the phone number for Silverstone…….
