Default Super extended Chinese truck

Chinese technicians have developed an extra long truck which is a 73,2 meters in length and mounted with 880 wheels.

"A newly developed large truck of 73.2 metres long is seen at an auto factory in Suzhou, east China's Jiangsu Province December 11, 2006. With hydroulic power systems, the super-extended truck could load 2,500 tons of cargo at a time." (Xinhua)
