Dunstable-based NJI Transport has taken delivery of its new fleet flagship, a custom MAN TGX 26.640 Individual Lion S with GX Cab.
NJI Transport’s new truck is powered by MAN’s D38 in-line six-cylinder Euro 6D which develops 3,000Nm, between 900 and 1,400 rpm.
Mounted behind the D38 is a MAN 12-speed TipMatic automated gearbox featuring a direct drive top gear. Linked by the propshaft is a HY-1344 lightweight hypoid rear axle.
The finished truck features carbon fibre colour-coded weave mirror backings and headlight surrounds, colour-coded chassis infill, LED headlights, Alcoa alloy wheels and black LightFix lightbars and catwalk.
It joins several other vehicles in the firm’s fleet, including a special edition 2016 66 registration plate TGX XXL Sir Geoff Hurst England football World Cup 50th anniversary vehicle, two limited edition pearl blue 26.640’s – two of a total of 10 in the UK – and a limited edition Nardo Grey TGX Individual Lion S 26.640.
Established in 1995 as a single owner driver business, with a 7.5-tonne truck, today NJI Transport offers a range of specialist transport services including hiabs and rigids, drawbar trailers, mounted forklift services and artics with specialist 40 and 45 foot trailers.
Nigel Iles, Company Founder and Managing Director of NJI Transport, said: “This latest TGX continues our theme of having a standout fleet flagship with a difference, something subtle that represents the business at both shows and events and while out on the road delivering goods for our customers.”
