Iveco presented a special edition of the Iveco S-Way during the Italian event of the European Truck Racing Championship.
The Iveco S-Way TurboStar Special Edition is a restyling of the Eighties truck using the two-tone TurboStar red and grey in metallic paint. It also gets decals of yellow, red and blue along the side – the classic Iveco colours of time.
Alessandro Massimino, head of marketing and product management truck business unit, said: “This special edition of the Iveco S-Way pays homage to a true icon of the past, the TurboStar. With its powerful engine range that included a 420-hp V8 engine, the TurboStar was the vehicle of choice for over 50,000 customers in the 1980s. It made its mark on the roads across Europe and was among the first trucks to race in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We created the Special Edition to bring to our customers this rich heritage combined with our brand’s unrivalled capacity to innovate as embodied in the Iveco S-Way and testifies to the team spirit that has always set us apart.”
On the inside, the TurboStar gets a retro rewind with seats upholstered in velvet – the same material used in the original TurboStar – while inserts on the dashboard evoke the original logo, which can also be found embroidered on the seats, cushions and mattress.
