At the IAA 2016 exhibit, MAN presented the PerformanceLine edition of its TGX series. Merely 100 units of the exclusive premium vehicle with numerous special features will be produced.
Presented in a spectacular show at this year’s IAA exhibit, the new TGX flagships made by MAN are distinguished by an exclusive design and top performance. A special highlight was the unveiling of the MAN TGX PerformanceLine edition, which is limited to 100 production units.
The top model is launched with a new D38 engine that is Euro 6-compatible and features a high-end motorisation of 640 hp and a torque of 3,000 Nm even at low revs. Other than this performance booster, the Munich-based company’s showpiece offers a specially valorised ambiance: The interior trim in leather provides comfort, while blue applications throughout mark another design element. The MAN lion logo is prominently displayed on the seats, while mirror covers and the radiator grille screen, as well as the PerformanceLine lettering on the door, stand out as sophisticated accents in anthracite.

A fully lionized brand
At this year’s IAA exhibit, projections and a spectacular light show flanked the entrance of the MAN TGX PerformanceLine edition. Painted in steel-blue, the two-axle semitrailer was launched in a special edition limited to merely 100 vehicles.
Powerful engine technology
Top-notch performance is delivered by a 640 hp output rendered by the MAN D38 engine. The new generation of the series six-cylinder engine is also distinguished by high torque at low revs: At even just 900 revs per minute, 3,000 Nm are already available, which makes for powerful driving at lower fuel consumption rates and reduced CO2 emissions.
Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Director Marketing, Sales and Services at MAN, presented the new showcase vehicle to trade show visitors and members of the press.
Seat-testing in the Cockpit

Passion for detail
Blue seams embedded in the leather embellish the multi-functional steering wheel. In addition, contrast stitching accentuates the shapes in comfort seats and the floor covering. Safety belts and the interior of all-round curtains are also dyed in blue.
The PerformanceLine lettering appears on the display when turning on the MAN Media Truck Advanced radio and navigation system. It offers outstanding sound and stands out due to numerous additional functions such as standard digital radio reception or twin pairing.
In the limited edition only
Placed on the passenger side dashboard, an additional PerformanceLine plaque further signifies the special series’ exclusivity.
Premium all over
The MAN TGX PerformanceLine edition also features an impressive exterior: Chrome applications on both horizontal radiator slats, sun visors and two air horns are part of the package.
