The world’s largest truck is the Liebherr T 282B, used for hauling in the mining industry. At more than 7 metres tall and 14 metres long, the 200 tonne monstrosity can still putt along at 64 kilometres per hour. New Scientist has published an interview with Francis Bartley, head of R&D for Liebherr:
The first time I was in it at a mine, the driver started to drive away and actually ran into the back of a service truck. It seems we mashed it down to the ground. I saw someone yelling, but we didn’t feel a thing.
