Its chassis features several metal parts and, at a length of 610mm, width of 196mm and standing tall at 320mm (excluding side mirrors, and antenna), this scale  model realistically depicts the Scania 770 S 8x4/4.

Highly  detailed with great accuracy, it comes with a number of features, such as the cab - authentically recreated by precise injection moulding - elaborate renderings of the auxiliary machinery tower, fuel and air tank. True to life, the Scania 770 S has double rear-axle drive, double front-axle steering and has the motor and transmission located at the front on a metal ladder frame. Strikingly realistic suspension using metal leaf springs features a lift axle, which can be moved up and down by hand at the second axle like the actual mechanism.

Part of Scania's new V8 truck range, the real Scania 770 S 8x4/4 is fitted with the new, state of the art  Euro 6 V8 770 hp engine; with torque of 3700 Nm, hills will pose few problems for this powerful machine, described by Scania themselves as "the world’s strongest commercially produced truck engine".
