Not happy with a straightforward top of the range truck? Always looking for that something extra for the pinnacle of the fleet? Mercedes may well have the answer for you, (assuming you aspire to the three-pointed star). They have brought out a new limited edition run of 400 examples of the Actros 2 just launched after the earlier success of the Actros 1.
So, what do you get for your money?
Starting with the basics, you can choose between a 4×2 or 6×2 tractor unit and have either a GigaSpace or BigSpace cab. It is obviously available in right hand drive. Paint it whatever colour you like, but the grille should remain as it is the signature detail in moonstone grey metallic.
Up to 40 new options for the vehicle’s interior and exterior combine with design elements from its Edition 1 predecessor to set the Edition 2 apart from other models in the Actros range.
You can order it from January 2021.
Tempted? Here’s the Spec
The interior has a dashboard and door handles covered in nappa leather, while other elements have a carbon-fibre look, and the roof hatch features ambient lighting. The new home screen in the Multimedia Cockpit’s primary display, and the polished and brushed aluminium Edition 2 badge on the passenger side stand out.
The top bunk comes with bedding and is 900 mm wide, while an all-around curtain – almond beige on the inside, black on the outside – ensures stylish privacy. Likewise, the curtain bearing an impression of the Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star, in front of the bed.
Exterior highlights include exclusive side wall decals with a star pattern, Edition 2 lettering in the lacquered sun visor, the Actros emblem in front, Actros lettering on the upper side of the cab’s back wall, as well as four additional LED spotlights in the sun visor and three LED working lights behind the cab. Stainless steel entrance steps and rear axle caps, with protective wheel nut caps, add another dash of style, as do the illuminated Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star with black aperture, decorative grille elements in dark chrome, and the darkened headlamp surround.
The Edition 2’s series equipment comprises the following:
- Safety Package, with a number of active driver assistance systems
- Comfort Package, with LED ambient lighting, shaving mirror, refrigerator and many other amenities for comfortable living
- Driving Package, with leather steering wheel, electric sun blind and more
