Show trucks from Finland
Trucks with a very personalised appearance – a trend that appears to be here to stay. But things don't always run problem-free: what looks really good in the end? In which order should conversion work be carried out? Who is best capable of such conversions? And what changes are and aren't permissible? Finnish company UniQ Concept takes care of all these challenges with their uniquely individual and consecutively numbered Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks.
All modifications here are made by a single source – and here, nothing comes from a production line; all extras are created specifically for each truck. Each of the luxurious elements of a show truck are integrated into a fully functioning working truck.
UniQ Concept customers have two main aims: first of all, they naturally want to increase visibility of their company, and secondly, they want to be able to enjoy their working day to the full in a cool truck!
UniQ Concept regularly draws in the crowds with their Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor units during truck festivals. And the familiar “Highway Hero” also comes from the owners of UniQ Concept.
The company based in Finland was among the challengers at the Nordic Trophy during the 2015 Trailer Trucking Festival; they brought the Actros Limited Edition shown here along with them.
“The Actros is the most beautiful truck currently on the market.”
Show Trucks “ready to deliver”.
“At UniQ Concept, we designed and created everything that is used on the truck,” explains one of the company's employees. “We look after the entire conversion process, from the simple standard version right up to the finished UniQ truck with its own number.”
Each conversion like the one shown here takes around seven weeks to complete. In this time, the truck gets equipped with a whole host of details in stainless steel, chrome and aluminium, as well as extra lighting options and an individual paint finish. On the inside, the trucks are fitted out with tailored leather appointments and suede-like alcantara. All trucks are “ready for action” when they are handed over to the customer.
The added plus: UniQ Concept currently only works with trucks from Mercedes-Benz because “we like the Mercedes Actros. With its typical shapes and its front-end assembly, it is the most attractive truck which is currently available on the market.”
Our slogan: “We create your dreams”.
