499,00 EUR *
The FULDA HIGHTECH EMOTIONS TRAIN is equipped with an original Marklin engine of the 182 series (a high-quality digital version), carrying the Fulda Hightech Emotions Truck design. This makes the high-quality locomotive a most conspicuous piece, and a unique collector‘s piece. that also goes for the four Herpa trucks that have been produced exclusively for this train set. The four truck models demonstrate, in a modern way, the history of Fulda’s promotional trucks. They are transported on four low-body wagons that are typically used for transporting loaded trucks. The story behind it all: for twenty years, show trucks have been a tradition at the high-tech tire company from Fulda, Germany – and again and again, Fulda’s ambitious activities were accompanied by lavishly executed Herpa miniature trucks. The last of these highlights in truck history was the Fulda Hightech Emotions Trucks, which Fulda tires had developed by a team of designers and engineers to celebrate its 100th anniversary. The result was a truly unique vehicle that has been unmatched around the globe – but it matches perfectly to Fulda’s claim to “German High Technology”. After a construction time of only two years, Fulda presented a truck that melted the best of the most advanced truck technology, design of luxury coaches, convenient handling in everyday life, and elements from the sports car segment. All that was united in a vehicle that received an incredible design, and many car drivers simply stopped when they spotted it, to take a closer look. The Herpa model sports each and every detail of the original, and just tike the real truck, it can spread the two parts of its trailer, to allow the integrated stage to be unfolded, which is used on many occasions whenever Fulda Tires goes public. The FULDA HIGHTECH EMOTIONS TRAIN will be available through Herpa‘s worldwide entwork of retailers from September 2005 as a limited edition of 1,500 pieces.
