Cool Move over Newell, Prevost?? MAN has arrived!

This gives the phrase ďKeep on TruckiníĒ a whole new meaning.

25% improvement in fuel economy sounds pretty darn good with the current price of diesel.

Wow! That is a streamlined man machine. Actually, Newell, Featherlite, Marathon, Liberty, Millennium coaches and or any other coach builders that want to take a step

onto the wild side could borrow some cues from this concept that is sure to become a reality. I would love to compare wind tunnel results from this Man semi-truck to

the Prevost, MCI, Eagles and Newell's. Which reminds me that I have never seen any wind tunnel testing on these big luxury coaches. Maybe some have done testing,

I'm just not of aware of any. There appears to be some abstracts from the 1941 GMC Futurliner or Streamliner. This could even be an idea for Newell to offer a retro-

design I shared about in my post under Luxury Coach Visions here: http://www.newellclassic.com/forum/l...ned-coach.html

Reminds me of the old Penske rigs, just with newer styling & an air cooled engine?
