Default Video: Bharat Benz testing the Fuso Super Great truck

Spotted this low deck double rear axle camouflaged test truck headed towards Hosur from Krishnagiri.
It had a long deck and small wheels for a Hcv.
Guess it is a Ashok Leyland from the registration and being around Hosur.





Front view of the truck. It was gliding over the expansion joints like a Scania or Volvo bus. It was loaded.

The truck above is TN-21 which is Kanchipuram RTO. So most likely Bharat-Benz and not AshLey.

Indeed it is a Bharat Benz Fuzo truck which is made for the export market. The front facia and projector headlamps are a giveaway.Iv seen a couple of them testing in Ooty.

It looks like a Fuso Super Great. Bharat-Benz must be doing some road tests of the next generation model.
