Black beauty

Isn’t this simply the most stunning truck? We simply had to share it with FOCUS readers!

It’s been acquired by James Ward, the owner of H&C Haulage in the United Kingdom. He always places great emphasis on the technology onboard his new vehicles and, up to now, has opted for a somewhat discreet design on his Arocs four-axle trucks: inconspicuous white. But now, Ward has pulled out all the stops and ordered his latest Arocs 3248 completely in black – and that includes the wheels and vehicle frame.

Red accents on the radiator grille and red protective grilles over the headlamps set the vehicle apart, while a light bar and air horns on the roof further enhance the trucks bold outward appearance. And to ensure that the side view of the truck also grabs your attention, a huge monkey’s face adorns the flanks of the cab. But the design touches don’t stop there: inside, drivers will enjoy the homely comforts of luxurious leather upholstery, a fridge and a night-time heating system.

The Arocs 3248 is powered by a 12.8-litre six-cylinder inline engine, which delivers 350 kW (476 hp). Driven predominantly on the roads of south-west England, this jet-black gem is used for transporting earth and stone – just like its understated, white-painted siblings. We love it!
