Sultan of Johore 2015 Mack 'Optimus Prime' Tow Truck

When you have so much luxury toys (supercars and superboats) what will you do? As for Sultan of Johor himself, he directly ordered an expensive custom made truck (solely for towing other toys) from Mack Truck Australia. The truck then handed over to Viking Trucks for customzation (paint job etc). 30 men required to complete the job. Specs; Powered by Mack's 16-litre, 685hp MP10 engine and mated to Mack's mDRIVE 12-speed automated manual transmission, the truck rides on a Mack FXL16.5 steer axle and Meritor RT46-160 drive axles. Primaax RADD-A4P air suspension system smooths the bumps while a custom 89-inch sleeper provides plenty of comfort while away from the palace. Fancy; Custom paint job incorporating the flag of Johor, the head of a tiger, and the Sultan's royal crest. It's a three-layer airbrush scheme, while the eight layers of pearl paint have been followed by six layers of clear coat. The royal crests sewn into the seats comprise some 72,000 stitches and use real gold thread, and the leather and suede was imported from South Africa just for this job. The timber for the interior and exterior decking was painstakingly installed over three months and the hand-built rear bumper features a hidden electric tool panel.Blue lighting adds to the truck's magnetic allure after dark, while the luxurious cab features two televisions, two iPads, an Xbox and a Sony PlayStation 4, plus a kitchenette with stone benchtop and a solid Jarrah timber floor.
