During the introduction of the new generation Scania is presenting one of the prototype trucks that has been running around Europe. Dozens of these camouflaged trucks were used to test all the new systems and technology on board and doing that they were caught often by truckdrivers and truckspotters. We at Iepieleaks got a lot of those photo’s and that lead to a lot of speculation. In the end there were so many photo’s of prototypes that we realy espected Scania to leake the real design but that did not happen. Scania played the game very good and kept the real looks of the new range untill the day of the launch. Only the scale model was leaked but that only generated more interest for the real thing.
Now at the presentation we finaly meet one of the prototypes. It is amazing how Scania fooled us with all the panels, rubber flaps and strange patrons on the trucks. The real thing looks much different and now it is fun to have a closer look at the field test trucks. Even the interior was camouflaged, not only the dashboard and the door panels but even the steering wheel! Here you see the close up photo’s of the truck.
