2010 Freightliner M2 112 Sportchassis
Starting with a Freightliner Sportchassis truck, Canepa Concept Transporters designed, engineered, and fabricated a complete custom turn-key single car transporter for a customer's Bugatti Veyron. It was built as the ultimate single-car transport, with an integrated lift system with super simple operation that allowed the Veyron to be driven onto a ground level exterior platform, secured, and then automatically moved into the interior of the box for transport via a wireless remote control.
The secure enclosure was hand formed out of smooth aluminum with radius corners and "rivetless" panel assemblies. It has a one-piece aluminum roof, with all aluminum and steel main frame and wall supporting structure. At the back are easy to operate aluminum double rear swing doors.
The expansive and secure belly boxes are fabricated from formed aluminum and lined with a rubberized spray-on liner. Belly box doors and all related exterior panels are fabricated from formed aluminum panels with aluminum tube support frames.
Very easy to drive and maneuver, the transporter is based on the successful Freightliner Sportchassis platform. Inside the four-door crew cab are leather Bostom T-Series Wide Ride front seats, a full Pioneer audio/video system with Direct TV, and comfortable seating for five passengers. The truck is secured by a state-of-the-art security system.
This truck is the ultimate mover for any supercar, hypercar, or vintage collectable car - transporting you and your vehicles safely, securely and privately.
