When we think of limited-edition models from Mercedes-Benz, we immediately think of bespoke variants of the S-Class, E-Class, or maybe even the G-Class. So imagine our surprise when the company actually released a special variant of the Actros, and one that is only limited to 400 units worldwide.
Yes, you read right, the three-pointed star just made a limited-run Actros called the Edition 2. Billed by the company to cater haulers that want style, class, and high comfort on their Actros, the Edition 2 is essentially a follow-up to the Edition 1 and comes with a plethora of features that highlight the truck's sense of luxury.
Starting with the exterior, Edition 2 features special side decals with a star pattern, 'Edition 2' lettering on the sun visor, and four additional LED spotlights on the sun visor. Stainless steel was also used extensively throughout the exterior which can be seen on the step boards, rear axle caps, and the protective wheel nut caps. But perhaps serving as the centerpiece is the illuminated three-pointed star that features a black aperture and several decorative grille elements finished in dark chrome.
A whole range of interior upgrades can be seen on the interior of Edition 2. Nappa leather covers the dashboard and door handles, while other sections are finished with a faux carbon-fiber trim. There's even an updated MBUX infotainment system, as well as a unique Edition 2 logo made out of polished and brushed aluminum placed on the passenger-side.
Should the driver decide to settle in for the night inside the Edition 2, they'll be glad to know that it has warm ambient lighting, and a top bed complete with bedding. There's also an all-around almond beige curtain that complements the warm ambient light. To ensure privacy while resting, the outside of the curtain is painted black.
Every Edition 2 will also come with the Comfort Package as standard – equipping the truck with a refrigerator, shaving mirror, and additional LED ambient lighting. Other key extras fitted as standard on Edition 2 include the Driving Package (leather steering wheel, electric sunblind, etc.), Sight Package (Bi-Xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers, LED taillights), and the Media Package (sound system, notebook holder, and additional 12/15 volt sockets).
With only 400 units set to be made, the Edition 2 will only be available to a select few. So if you're looking to haul cargo in style and comfort, the Actros Edition 2 may be the truck you're looking for.
