Custom-built Mack for Sultan of Johor worth more than the previous record of $481,000.

 

Mack has completed its most expensive build on Australian soil with a customised Super-Liner on its way to Malaysia’s sultan of Johor.

The bespoke truck features a luxury leisure deck, gold-thread embroidery, a golden tiger hood ornament from Wallace Bishop and a specially-designed sleeper unit 80 per cent larger than standard with imported South African leather upholstery.

Mack Trucks Australia says the price tag for the extravagant truck is a secret, but "it’s certainly the highest ever for a Mack truck, easily smashing the previous record of $481,000 for a customised US-built rig."

Built at Mack’s Wacol factory in Brisbane, sultan Ibrahim Ismail’s Super-Liner is designed to lug his private powerboat around Malaysia.

The design for the truck began a year ago, Mack says, with its vice-president Dean Bestwick meeting the sultan in Singapore.

"We’d never contemplated the features that have been included in his majesty’s truck," Bestwick says.

"This is the most luxurious truck to have been built in Australia and probably the planet."

While using the Mack, the sultan will have chance to enjoy the solid jurrah timber flooring fitted throughout the cab, sleep unit and leisure deck.

The truck also has six CCTV cameras linked to two TVs mounted inside the vehicle, programmable strip-lighting running the full length of the cab and a stone-topped kitchen, with fridge, microwave and grill.

There are police-standard flashing lights and sirens, bose surround sound system, fully-ducted air-conditioning and X-Box and Playstation consoles.

Happy with the result, the sultan acknowledged the work done by Mack’s 35-employee team.

"I have always appreciated Australia’s engineering skills and have collected a few Holden cars over the years," Ismail says.

"Mack has done a wonderful job and I’m looking forward to showing its workmanship to the people of Johor as soon as the Super-Liner is shipped over."

The 685hp truck, also fitted with external LED lighting and heat and sound insulation, has been painted red, white and blue to match the colours of Johor.
