MAN 7.5T Race Truck For Sale



MAN 7.5T Race Truck For Sale

2004 7.5T Man Transporter in Silver, built by Hopkins Motorsport for Formula Renault/Renault Sport on a new MAN Chassis with 20ft box, ex Tour de Force Motorsport.  Can be driven on a car licence, if Cat B test passed before 1997. 

Speedo now reading 158,000 KM, reading was 156,000KM prior to my ownership, so very little mileage in past 2 years. Previously run on OP Licence so inspected every 90 days. Last MOT and £1000 Service (new fluids, filters etc.) prior to my ownership, now registered as private HGV. Tested at end of April 2019, 11 months test remaining and ready to go. All tyres are recent with good tread. The truck has been totally reliable having covered many European events for the previous owner. ABS, Cruise Control, Touch screen JVC head unit, USB sockets, air sprung driver’s seat, rear view camera etc.

Absolutely spotless chassis as it has never been used in winter/seen salt. Still has the stickers on various components and absolutely no rust. Tow bar with full electrics for towing a race shuttle or open trailer.

Good box and cab, some small marks but no significant damage just the odd scratch, paint bubble and dink as to be expected the worst of which are on the rear panel below the tail lift for obvious reasons. All plastics black and fresh looking. Skinned body coloured tail lift and running/side lights. The truck looks at least 10 years younger than it is! Roto-vent fan to avoid damp and keep the box ventilated. Never had an awning fitted so no screw holes etc. in the box, rear roller shutter.

Side door with internal steps and cover panel. Multiple big belly lockers capable of taking a variety of kit and equipment all with double flush catches and locks. External power hookup and fully wired for 240V with consumer unit, 6 x double sockets and lighting. Black rubber flooring and silver brushed ally skirting. Tyre rack at front of box and some NewAge high quality, lockable, flip front cupboards.  Recently fitted Penman Engineering roll top tool storage box and new internal winch.  Load area is 19ft long by 7ft10" wide. Fitted with floor and side strapping points. Capable of carrying a variety of formula and saloon and sports cars. I have used it to carry a sports racing car or historic F2.  Previous owner carried Formula Renault, turbo era F1 and modern era F1 cars. Very easily upgraded to carry two Formula cars or sports racers, if required.

1.25 Tonne single stage tail lift with fold out ramps and recent new tilt winch. Winch and lift controls built into LHS rear locker/box area. 

This is an excellent clean, reliable truck perfectly suited to a team or private individual wishing to run one or two cars from a professional vehicle, it was built from new as a race truck by one of the best race truck builders.  Selling because I don’t use it much and am now subject to age related licence restriction.

Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.  Viewing by appointment near Stansted airport.
