Clearly a bus concept. Whose is it?

[edit]

Neoplan Aero 24-7 concept. No mention on Neoplan's own website, the images are all on third party sites.

I noticed the same thing, no links to a Neoplan website. I linked to one above that seemed to have the most information, mostly pictures though.

Thanks. It turns out I can only see 5, or 2, without allowing Javascript anyway.

Rear fender skirts, while the concept it came from had none.

Second spare tire is the rear bumper. Converted to a pickup truck in the 1950s!

Let's see....
  • Grille block
  • airdam
  • aero mirrors
  • active wing in air brake position?

I like to think the visor is a mirror shade.
