Article number: 452630100
Mercedes-Benz LP "cubic" cabin trucks were a series of cab-over-engine trucks first shown in 1963. They are most commonly referred to as the "Kubische Kabine" in German, referring to the squared-off appearance of the cabin. "LP" was also used on the cab-over versions of the preceding range of Mercedes-Benz trucks. The heavy- and medium-duty models had been discontinued by 1975 as the Mercedes-Benz NG range took over, while the lighter portion of the range was only replaced in 1984, by the new LK (Leichte Klasse, "light class"). The first version introduced was the LP 608, equipped with the 80 PS (59 kW) OM 314 diesel engine. There was also a 7.5-tonne (17,000 lb) version, as well as 8.0-and-8.5-tonne (17,600 and 18,700 lb) ones. In 1969 nine-tonners appeared, fitted with the six-cylinder OM 352 engine with either 110 or 130 PS (81 or 96 kW). The LP 608 was also the first truck to leave the production line in Daimler-Benz newly constructed plant in Wörth.
Schuco is going to produce a miniature model of this Mercedes-Benz LP608 to a scale of 1:87. Edition 1:87 models come with a metal body. As is expected of Schuco models, a number of key features have been reproduced exactly with the greatest attention to detail. These models are the perfect choice for model railways enthusiasts, diorama makers and die-hard model collectors.
