Random Diesel Musings for Spring

In the age of Photoshop can you ever be sure what you see on the internet is real? Take a look at this photo and let the conspiracy side of your mind run wild for a moment.


What did you decide? My first thought was somebody needs to change the tires on that haul truck! But really, this appears to be a genuine photo. It was tweeted by the official M-B account a few weeks ago. This photo really helps to highlight the power most modern trucks have to haul loads that are simply constrained by weight, length, and height law.

Speaking of power have you heard of the Trident Iceni Magna? Utializing a 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 this future supercar is expected to produce 395 horsepower with 700 pound feet of torque. With a top speed of 190 mph the Iceni Magna is the world’s faster diesel powered car. Too seal the deal you can travel 2,000 miles on one tank of fuel. Whaaaaaaat?
