    So i recently came back from 3 weeks in California to be presented with a shiny new P100, after 13 years with the company is was about time, my old hack was 18 years old. It seems some thought has gone into the new vehicles with a few things added that must have come from driver suggestions.

    Anyway, thought you guys would like some pics of a European P100

    The hot seat


    Long way to the front


    Secure area for rolls of fabric etc

    Digital Tachograph to keep me legal


    LED lights throughout, this is well after dark


    Anyways, hope you enjoy.

    Its lovely to drive even if its limited to 56mph although the old P80 was easier to work from

    You better write that truck up immediately. They put your drivers seat on the wrong side!

    Sweet! I want one except steering on the other side. Oh and automatic.

    I can't believe it's not an automatic, but it would do !

    I'm surprised it still has the Mercedes emblem on it. Here stateside they usually remove any manufacturer emblems that the public may see.

    When pulling away from curb, right turn signal, right mirror, right shoulder

    Now that's a package car, I could run scratch in one of those. Maybe.. Like the mirror placement, much better that they are on the new trucks here, lot more visibility out front too. Manual trans works for me, I prefer them actually.

    The area for longs is really cool, as is the passenger side mirror allowing you to see right next to the truck.

    I wouldn't last a day. I could never shift a vehicle with my left hand.

    Surprised its not an automatic, and the step into the cab kinda sucks, and looks like a far reach to the diad, other than that looks pretty nice. We have a few with those monitors and they are really bright at night. Look at the far left it looks like it has a camera lens in it!

    Of course you're not supposed to be using your DIAD while you're driving anyway :p
