Penske Australia & New Zealand has delivered an all-new MAN TGX 26.640 to the Shell V-Power Racing Team.

It marks the third MAN truck taken by Dick Johnson Racing and builds on a 10-year relationship with MAN Truck & Bus, the accomplished Supercars team, victorious in 10 drivers’ championships and three teams’ championships.

“It’s wonderful to partner with the Shell V-Power Racing Team again, delivering a truck that we believe redefines the Australian trucking landscape,” said Craig Lee, Penske Executive General Manager of On-Highway.

“Streamlined and modern, the TGX is incredibly spacious, boasting an optimised dash layout and a luxurious rest and sleep area.

“Featuring innovative driver assistance systems and 640 horsepower, the team can rest assured that its precious cargo will be well taken care of.”

The economical engine, improved aerodynamics, and many other efficiency-enhancing innovations have improved fuel savings while the advanced driver assistance systems, including emergency brake assist, lane guard system, adaptive cruise control, and anti-locking braking, combine state-of-the-art technology with intuitive operation.

Underpinned by an intuitive operating philosophy, the driving environment impresses with outstanding ergonomics, SmartSelect navigation, a comfortable bed, generous storage space, and a modern and easy-to-use infotainment system.

Shell V-Power Racing Team CEO David Noble added that MAN made for a winning solution.

“With MAN, we’ve always had a highly reliable and efficient prime mover to transport our race cars and equipment to Supercar rounds,” said Noble.

“The new transporter contributes to our mission in achieving carbon-neutral status as a race team, giving us one of the most efficient fuel-burning prime movers on the road,” he said.

“Wherever our transporter driver travels across our vast country this year, not only can he count on the might of MAN, but also the extensive support coverage provided by Penske Australia and its comprehensive network of dealers.”
