• Flagship of the MAN TGX series with 640 hp presented for the first time at the IAA;
• BFS (Business Fleet Services), Stegmaier Group’s hire division, receives No 001 of the special edition;
• MAN PerformanceLine edition brings together numerous special features in the cab and in the exterior design, creating an exclusive premium vehicle.
Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Sales & Marketing Director at MAN Truck & Bus AG, has now personally handed over the key to No 001 of the special edition to BFS (Business Fleet Services), Stegmaier Group’s hire division, at MAN Truck Forum.
The MAN PerformanceLine edition (mantruckandbus.com) brings together numerous special features in the cab and in the exterior design, creating an exclusive premium vehicle. It is exclusively available as part of the MAN TGX series with the Euro 6-compatible high-end motorisation of 640 HP.
In terms of the exterior view, the mirror covers and lower radiator grille screen are anthracite-coloured. Features include chrome applications on both horizontal radiator slats, a sun visor and two compressed-air horns. The PerformanceLine lettering on the doors denotes the special model.
The interior of the TGX is like a gem. There are blue applications in many places: Blue contrast stitching accentuates the shape of the multifunctional leather steering wheel, the high-comfort seats and the floor covering. The lion motif is embossed on the headrest and is clearly visible as a blue outline on the lower covering of the upper bed. Also coloured blue are the seatbelts and the inward-facing side of the all-around curtains. The dark blue brushed aluminium inlays are always in view on the dashboard. An additional PerformanceLine plaque on the passenger-side dashboard alludes to the special series’ exclusivity.
The PerformanceLine lettering also appears on the display when the MAN Media Truck Advanced radio and navigation system is turned on. This stands out thanks to its outstanding sound system and numerous additional functions, such as standard digital radio reception.
Exclusivity and comfort are provided by the leather interior trim and seat covers in a mix of Alcantara and leather.
BFS received the MAN TGX PerformanceLine edition in the form of a two-axle semitrailer painted in metallic steel blue with a styling package. This consists of highly-polished stainless steel front and side bars with integrated LED accent lighting, as well as a huge light bar with four halogen high-beam headlights.
Hermann Stegmaier, Director of the Stegmaier Group, expressed his delight on the occasion of the key handover: “We are pleased to be able to accept the first PerformanceLine edition. Our aspiration is to always have the most powerful vehicles in our rental vehicle fleet and to inspire our customers. This truck, which I also personally like very much, fits this perfectly. It is the 3000th MAN that we have acquired for BFS in our company’s history and at the same time, it’s also our edition for Stegmaier Group’s 90th anniversary.”
