MERCEDES-Benz Trucks UK has unveiled an exclusive, limited edition new model. A maximum of 100 Actros1 tractor units are being built and go on sale loaded with optional technology, comfort features and visual enhancements.

The eye-catching newcomer has been designed specifically for owner drivers. However, the Actros1 name reflects the fact that it is also destined to become the ‘number one’ vehicle in fleets run by family owned, long distance hauliers that choose highly specified trucks, and larger operators seeking a flagship vehicle, perhaps to incentivise and reward staff, suggests Mercedes.

Based on the 6×2 chassis with the range topping GigaSpace cab, Actros1 comes in either distinctive black or silver/black colour schemes.
