Actros through the ages: Mercedes-Benz at Truckfest 201629 April 2016

Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will be showcasing new and historic vehicles at next week’s Truckfest event (Peterborough; 1-2 May).

To celebrate 20 years of Actros, Mercedes-Benz will have four special vehicles on display at Truckfest, one from each model generation and all in operation.

DN Mobile’s stunning first-generation Actros will line up with a 2006 1861 Black Edition, a 2010 2455 MegaSpace and Green Group’s newest 630bhp 2563 GigaSpace.

Joining them will be a bonneted 1971 LP 1418, a 1996 SK 1834 Euroliner and Neil Yates Recovery’s Arocs 4158, known as The Beast.

Among the 15 other vehicles on the Mercedes-Benz stand will be a high-visibility Mercedes-Benz Econic 8x4 tipper, designed for use by construction operators in city centres, and an Actros tractor used by the Met Police’s Trading Places scheme to demonstrate to cyclists the challenges faced by truck drivers in urban environments.

Visitors can also register for the launch of RoadStars, an online hub for truck drivers. It will feature industry news, competitions and giveaways, and be a place for drivers to share stories, tips and videos.
