Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar owns hundreds of impressive cars in his collection but none quite as earth-shaking as his new Mack truck, which is the most expensive truck ever built at Mack’s Brisbane factory.
According to ABC News, the Super-liner took a year to build at the company’s headquarters in Wacol, south-west of Brisbane. That’s unsurprising, considering the list of luxurious items installed in the rig.
Exterior-wise, Sultan Ibrahim’s latest toy features the glorious blue, white and red livery, matched with chrome-painted grille and front bumper. And is that a solid gold tiger ornament on the hood? You bet it is.
The list also includes some of the fanciest extras around, such as a six-camera CCTV system, two flat-screen TVs, a kitchen area with stone countertops, barbecue equipment, as well as double bed and seats with 72,000 stitches of gold thread.
“I have always appreciated Australia’s engineering skills and have collected a few Holden cars over the years. I am looking forward to showing its workmanship to the people of Johor as soon as the Super-Liner is shipped over,” he said.
No words on the pricing but the Mack Super-liner smashes the previous record of $481,000 for a customised rig. It’s first drive in Malaysia will be a charity run when it arrives at the end of the month.
