A specialist for long pieces of iron: Peter Rettermeier's L 2624/6x4
Peter Rettermeier's L 2624 with long wheelbase is a bit special – and was very nearly banished to Africa.
The model series.
Production for the European market stopped a long time ago, but international demand for the vehicle didn't stop: everyone wanted the truck with the short bonnet. It was only in the mid-1990s that the last of its kind – an L 1924 – rolled off the production line in Wörth. The L 2624 model series already appeared at the end of the 1960s. With ten more horsepower than the predecessor model and around 11.7 tonnes of usable payload, this three-axle truck quickly became a success.
