MAN L90

Postby Rusape » Sun Sep 10, 2017 6:12 pm

Ok, having done the necessary intro, here is a pic of my base vehicle:

Factory supplied by MAN and built by MAN/Toni Maurer as a Daker T4 race support truck.
Huge list of upgrades to chassis/engine/gearbox/cab/diffs etc etc.

Been kept in A1 condition by race team, comes with Syegon CTIS and I bought it with 10 cases of spares, incl 6 spare wheels/tyres.

OMG!!!! that is awesome!

It would actually be a shame to convert that into anything other than what it is!

Does it sound as good as it look's?

I love it!

Yep it sure is some machine. I've done 150kmh off-road when testing it (pretty scary) and the owner reported it is good for 220kmh flat-out :shock:

Sadly, at only 520hp it is not competitive enough. The modern T4 trucks are now approaching 1200hp !!

It will make a great base vehicle as it was built for the very harsh conditions of the Dakar.

Very nice! That's a great truck to have ownership of.

I did wonder at first if it was the L90 that I was keeping an eye on . Which country did you buy it?

Purchased in France, the previous owner just taken delivery of his new 1000hp truck. He hopes it will be more competitive than the sluggish MAN !
