This R/C model assembly kit recreates the Scania 770 S 6x4, a double rear-axle drive trailer head equipped with a 16.4-liter V8 diesel turbo engine capable of 770hp added in 2020 to the Swedish manufacturer Scania's top-grade S Series - which had undergone a full model change in 2016, its first for 21 years. The model has a highly realistic body, with parts included to depict customizations such as a roof bar featuring light pods, grille bar, low bar and side bars, plus metal transfers to capture V8 and 770 S emblems. The interior gets the detailed Tamiya treatment, too, with depictions of the modern dashboard design and even the V8 embossings on the seats. Its ladder frame features aluminum side channels with resin cross members, and power from the front-mounted motor is delivered to two rear axles via a 3-speed transmission and propeller shaft. A built-in differential gear on each axle enables smooth cornering. Highly-realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers, and the model enjoys easy driving thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles.
