The Polish branch of Mercedes-Benz boasted a showcase copy of the latest Actros on the Internet. The truck, which is filled with the most modern technologies, such as cameras instead of mirrors, was painted by Tomasz Łęczyński – an illustrator who often creates works related to the automotive industry.
As the manufacturer prides itself on the fact that the new model is equipped with many intelligent solutions, the vehicle has been given the name of SmartTruck. And that’s probably why, among the elements that appeared on the truck cab, there’s also a powerful brain tied up with a whole lot of wires and cables.
The showcase Actros without mirrors will be presented live soon, at this year’s edition of the Master Truck Show, on 19-21 July in Nowa Wieś Polska. Until then, you can watch how the SmartTruck cover paintings were created.

Why is Actros special?
The producer assures that the new Actros has been considerably improved with regard to safety and comfort. The most important and spectacular new feature is the new Active Drive Assist. Unlike systems which only work within a certain speed range, Active Drive Assist gives the driver access to semi-automated driving at all speeds for the first time in a series production truck.
