Car transport specialist Rolfo has unveiled a new concept in car transporter bodywork.
The innovative EGO 539 is capable of transporting 12 cars, or mixed loadings with large vehicles and is built on a Mercedes Actros 2443 equipped with 428 hp engine, low-roofed Compact Space cab and an original pusher axle.

The tractor unit, supplied by Midlands Truck & Van, has been modified to make it a closer fit to car transport requirements with relocation of batteries and air tanks and a new 525-litre fuel tank. This work was carried out by SB Components of Wisbech.
Davide Sobrino, Managing Director of Unirolfo, the Rolfo Group’s agent for the UK market, acknowledged that the EGO 539’s market-leading carrying capacity was sure to catch the eye of many potential customers. But he insisted this was only part of the story.
He said, “With its increased loading volume, this vehicle is more productive than anything Rolfo has built before.”
