Actros BlackEdition – a dream in black
Vehicle & Technology
2004: The limited edition of the 450-kW-strong flagship was a real eye-catcher on the streets of Europe.
The dream of every driver: the Actros BlackEdition 1861. In 2004, Mercedes-Benz brought this limited edition of 250 trucks onto the European market, with 100 of those being delivered in Germany. A single glance is enough and it is immediately clear to any observer even today: this truck is pure power. But, it's not only the strength of the Actros which is captivating, the comfortable MegaSpace cab with the distinctive star on the two-section radiator grille is particularly impressive. Shining chrome, the polished Alcoa wheel rims shimmer in the light and the words "BlackEdition" are resplendent in silver writing on black paint above the windscreen.
