Yes, the battle to have the World’s Most Powerful Truck has taken another twist.  The mantle, which used to be held by the Volvo FH16-700 has now been taken by Scania who have launched their new R 730 with a 16.4-litre 730hp V8.  And here it is.


With a torque level of 3,500 Nm and 730 horsepower, Scania’s new V8 is the most powerful truck engine in the world − built to meet the toughest emission standards and handle the most demanding tasks. Given its power, the new engine will also enable hauliers to meet the future need for higher transport capacity – longer and heavier trucks − thereby providing benefits for the environment and the climate.
