Bertone

Lego Scania TruckThe Italian designer Bertone penned all manner of beautiful exotic cars (and the Vauxhall Astra Convertible), so it was a moment of brilliance by Scandinavian truck maker Scania to employ the company to design their new truck in 1996. An instant success, European truck drivers split into two camps; those that drove a Scania and those that wanted to. Sadly Bertone himself died just a year later and the Bertone company was absorbed into the FIAT group. Norton74 pays tribute the design great with his superbly recreated Scania 164G trucks. See more of his creations on either Flickr or MOCpages.
