Am I wrong or he will have LED lights?
The front looks more like a Scania - but this thing could have LED headlights…on the first pics it definitely has LED dayrunning lights.
Looks like a serious truck
Cant wait to see it

Looks super aerodynamic.
Don't understand why Euro likes this top heavy, flat faced trucks. Looks absolutely inneficient and retarded.
Can that thing clear a speed bump. And what's up with the cab looking like its going to tip open in some of those pictures?
In the US we like things big... SUVs trucks...
In Europe the need things small... micro cars
When space is limited you need to sit on the engine.
They are going to show some American trucks at the upcoming motor show for commercial vehicles
in Hannover (IAA 2010), so truckers there have something to dream about.
Actually, it's all about efficiency. The maximum lenght of a semi in most European countries is 16.5 meters (~54 ft), from bumper to bumper. Why waste precious cargo capacity to accommodate the engine?
Looks very modern
Whether your interested in trucks or not - FACT is, that these big haulers has absolutely astonishing technology. Hindsight is that no automobile in production has the tech of these trucks
