Default WIP Pictures: Red Bull Tour Bus. A Stage for Music Bands

Red Bull has a global fleet of 9 tour buses in the following countries: Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Austria, Italy, Spain, USA & Baltic State. This year, two countries (India and France) will be added to the list.

The Red Bull Tour Bus will be a stage at all four (Pune, Delhi, Bangalore & Kolkata) editions of the NH7 Weekender in 2013, allowing young music bands to showcase their talent.

For more details / entries, click on this link: http://tourbus.redbull.in/

About the Tour Bus:
  • Based on a Tata Motors 1512 chassis.
  • Answer to an obvious BHPian question: The bus will churn out a total of 135 BHP with an estimated top whack of 87 kph.
  • With a fuel carrying capacity of 250L, the bus weighs 16,200 kgs, including 12,000 kgs of iron / steel + aluminium & marine plywood.
  • An estimated count of 2,250 man hours is expected to get the bus rocking & rolling.
  • Dimensions of the whole bus = 36 ft x 8 ft x 11.50 ft (l x b x h) without the stage.
  • Main Stage on the roof = 28 ft x 6 ft (l x b), Small Stage on the side = 10 ft x 5.5 ft (l x b). 3-4 hour duration to set up.
  • Features include a gaming console, 22" flat screen TV, mini work station, eight bunk beds, twelve seats, a combination of hardwood floors and an equipment storage area, with an emergency exit at the rear.

It was mentioned that India is the first country where the bus is built from scratch (from buying a chassis to fabrication etc.). In other countries, a readymade bus was purchased and then, the additions / subtractions were carried out.

How the tour bus would look, once completed. Notice the main stage on the roof:

Pullout support pillars for the small stage on the side:

WIP Pictures captured yesterday

Quite retro-looking. Tata at heart is a giveaway here. The center portion will be covered with the Red Bull Tour Bus logo:

Couple of seats, which could convert into a bed:

Door for getting the equipment in / out. A special lift will be imported for lifting heavy equipment:

Structural strengthening for the roof, allowing artists to head bang on top:

Multiple windows on the side. Didn't seem like these can be opened:

The rendition of the retro bus is an eye candy, so is the interior.

I see so much of metal paste/ Bondo on the front body panels. I wonder the state of the body in case of a minor accident with impact on the front body panels.
