This is an indication of the strength of a brand when it can remarket its secondhand trucks with ‘certificates of authenticity’.

No doubt part of an original sponsorship deal, there are 24 low mileage, top spec FH Globetrotter XL tractor units for sale, all available through the Volvo Trucks used network.

The only downside to these is that the tractor units are left hand drive and 4×2.  So only really suitable for businesses on European work.

The 18-plate trucks are finished in metallic silver and built to a flagship specification. They spent the 2018 and 2019 seasons transporting the team’s race cars and equipment to European rounds of the Formula One World Championship.  They are available in a choice of two chassis heights – X-Low & Medium – with mileages varying between 30,000 km and 60,000 km.

Carl White, National Sales & Brand Manager at Volvo Used Trucks, says:

“These are very special vehicles and we’re expecting a lot of interest from owner-drivers and fleets doing mostly continental work.

“So far as specifications go, they’ve got pretty much every option on them factory fitted, including refrigerators, microwaves and luxury leather interiors. What’s more, they have been maintained in showroom condition by McLaren Racing, and with all servicing work carried out within the Volvo Trucks dealer network.

Each vehicle will be supplied with a McLaren Racing baseball cap signed by current F1 drivers Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris, together with a carbon fibre McLaren keyring. The trucks will also feature an exclusive McLaren Racing badge positioned discreetly on the cab – a sign of the vehicle’s true motorsport heritage.
