Abandoned almost 30 years: Mercedes 1618 truck is still 0KM

Mercedes Benz truck model 1618 from the year 1995 was found 0KM until today.

We know that new trucks are every truck driver's dream. So there are some models and brands that have marked history here in Brazil.

In 1993 the Mercedes 1618 was launched, it was a great success of the new HPN series from Mercedes-Benz🇧🇷 Then it was succeeded by the L-1620 model, which was another great sales success here in our Brazilian market.

These trucks and other successful models certainly have a place reserved for many stories in the memories of truck drivers in Brazil.

In the past, in the late 1980s, people used this strategy a lot of buying trucks and cars to keep them in storage. Due to the great devaluation of money at the time.

They used it as a form of investment, so as not to lose the money they earned by working.

Anyway, after that time, it was being forgotten, and nowadays nobody does that. Even with this devaluation that is our real, currency shaken in recent years.
