MAN Truck & Bus delivered its first TGX D38 PerformanceLine unit to CNQ Freight Services at the Brisbane Truck Show today.

The limited-edition 640hp unit was provided complete with XXL cab giving CNQ Freight Services' drivers the ultimate in their working environment.

With an internal height of over 2m, even the tallest of drivers will experience the spaciousness that the XXL cab provides.

MAN's flagship 15.2L 640hp D38 engine delivers 3,000 Nm of torque at 930 – 1,350 rpm and comes with an automated manual 12-speed Traxon transmission.

This is all coupled with exclusive PerformanceLine features including an energy efficient, advanced light and visibility package, twin pairing of mobile devices, leather Alcantara seats with blue seat belts and seams, and steel blue metallic interior highlights on the dashboard and door trim with distinct PerformanceLine badging.

"We are very excited to be delivering the first of the limited-edition PerformanceLine units to CNQ Freight Services today," said Sergio Carboni, national sales manager – MAN, Penske Commercial Vehicles.

"Through Penske Truck Leasing, CNQ has secured a leasing package that includes very competitive rates and full maintenance giving complete peace of mind.

"As with CNQ's other MANs, we know this unit will deliver outstanding fuel efficiency, low whole-of-life costs, the ultimate in safety and comfort, along with excellent reliability."

CNQ Freight Services' director, Andrew Cox, said the long-standing relationship with MAN and local dealer Penske Power Systems Brisbane was a key decider in the purchasing process.

"We have worked with Callie Le Roux of Penske Power Systems for a long time," said Mr Cox.

"He told us about the PerformanceLine and once we learned more about the unit, we were sold!

"We have run MAN in our fleet for the last four years or so, and they deliver fantastic results. From fuel efficiency, to comfort, to reliability, the MANs are a favourite among the fleet.

"We have received outstanding support from both Penske Power Systems and Penske Truck Leasing. Staff are professional and truly understand our business drivers."
