Mercedes-Benz Actros Semi fitted for Taxi Duty, Picks up Humorous Fares
2 February 2012 - Autoblog
The new-generation 2012 Actros big rig has already won Truck of the Year – for the fourth time – and Mercedes-Benz figured it would have some letting other truck people know about its semi.
It kitted an Actros out in the eggshell hue and black-and-yellow sign that's standard-issue German taxi livery, then sent it to pick up passengers.
The hook? Some of these passengers were waiting outside competing truck companies like MAN and Volvo, and were a little surprised at the arrival of their seven-ton chariot.
