Penske delivers MAN TGX D38 to race team

Penske Commercial Vehicles has delivered a new MAN TGX D38 truck to DJR Team Penske in preparation for the 2017 Supercars season.

“With 2,700Nm of torque available in all gears at all times, and fuel optimisation features such as MAN EfficientCruise, the D38 achieves an excellent balance of performance and cost efficiency,” said Penske Commercial Vehicles General Manager – Truck Sales.

“All this makes the D38 the ideal tool for applications such as transporting DJR Team Penske which will travel the length and breadth of the Australian countryside over the course of 2017.”

The delivery of the D38 extends DJR Team Penske’s association with the MAN Truck & Bus brand, having previously been featured on the racecar liveries.

“Over the last two years, MAN has joined us as naming rights partner at Pukekohe and Sydney Motorsport Park
“The MAN brand was featured on the #17 Falcon when we secured our first podium finish for DJR Team Penske, so we have fond associations with MAN.

“The D38 will be a welcome addition to the team, giving us a cost effective and high performance solution to transport our cars and equipment,” said DJR Team Penske Managing Director, Ryan Story.

Launched in October 2016, the heavy-duty D38 features a 15.2 litre, six-cylinder inline engine and is tailored for Australian conditions.

With 560hp at 2,000ft-lb and maximum torque from 930rpm, the D38 is perfectly suited for long distance travel across Australia with B-double configurations making it an ideal fit for DJR Team Penske.
