The "guess-what-car" game


#6112

Clue time

It’s quite a big truck, with a cab over 2 m wide (wider than an F-150 of its time, note the three headrests)


#6113

Was it made in Russia?


#6114

Nope


#6115

Italian?


#6116

The company that built this is based in a different country, but it’s fair to say this vehicle has a bit of Italian in it.


#6117

Tofas?


#6118

Nah, not a Tofas


#6119

It’s not from Europe.


#6120

Weird American car?


#6121

Chinese car?


#6122

It’s neither.


#6123

Its 2.8l Diesel engine and 5 speed manual transmission are both sourced from Iveco.


#6124

Africa


#6125

RD28 engine?


#6126

Nope, it’s a later variant of the Sofim 8140 family.


#6127

Last night I spent an actual hour trying to find any sort of vehicle with the info you gave us (which by the “guess-what-car game” standards is a lot) and I couldn’t find the vehicle.


#6128

I’ll give a more useful clue: it’s from Libya


#6129

I just spent another twenty minutes and I still can’t find it, lol.


#6130

You’re not alone. I have to stay up all night for a sleep-brainwave exam in the morning (let’s hope I don’t have epilepsy or a brain tumour) so I naturally have a lot of time on my hands rn but still no clue. I even figured out that polish concept car from the 80’s or whatever and this one is just impossible for me.


#6131

Fine, I’ll make it easier.

The company that made it can be found here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_companies_of_Libya

This pickuo is their only original design, they normally built Ivecos under licence.
