Undressing a prototype

The Scania scoop that I posted gave a lot of reactions. The most interesting one was from Сергей Орлов. I’ve got no idea how to pronounce or translate that name, but he sent some interesting photo’s.

He says the camouflaged truck has the old Scania cab under the wrapping, and he proofs it with some very smart photoshop work. Now I’ve lost it. Check for your self, is this what is going on or is Сергей Орлов simply too good with photoshop?

  1. I don`t agree that this is the old cab. The cab is placed higher, the line on the roof is different, and the hight is between highline and topline. The steps and wheelarches are different an attached to the cab when tilting, unlike the present model. The line on the front window seems also a little bit different. The headlights seems to be like the present model. This truck was manufactured last autum, and put into traffic this summer (july, and registrated on Scania), so this is probably from the first batch of testvehicles, and there are probably some more testvehicles in traffic. They will also probably produce som more this autum for use by customers. The launch will most likely be winter 2014/2015.

  2. The dashboard is different to the current model.

    Other truck brands have been testing the old cabs sitting a little bit higher to test the Euro 6 engines but Scania already have the Euro 6 range avaliable in the R series so it doesnt make sense to use the old cab in this ¨¨mule¨.

    I bet they are testing the new frame with the new cab.

  3. Pay attention to the roof lining, the lining at the back of the cab and the mudguards on the front axle.
    This is not a regular Highline cab. It’s something new, not an Eindhoven-upgrade.
