Flagship goes for gold

A limited edition version of its flagship S-series Highline tractor unit to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its V8 engine is being launched by Scania.

Just 25 of the trucks – available in either two- or three-axle format – will be made, each one individually numbered.

Available in three distinctive anniversary colours – Ruby Red, Arctic Silver and Sapphire Blue – key features of the series include anniversary cab badges displaying each vehicle’s individual limited edition number, exclusive puddle lights and badged hub caps and mudflaps.

In addition, every owner will be presented with a specially-commissioned numbered certificate commemorating their purchase of a 50th anniversary Scania V8.

Vincente Connolly, UK Sales Director for Scania in the UK, told us: “In the UK, the V8 is an integral part of our success story representing a significant proportion of our sales – especially to long-haul operators, particularly those in Scotland and Northern Ireland.”
