The record German title-winners will travel to home and away fixtures on an exclusively-equipped MAN Lion’s Coach.
The three-axle coach is driven by the efficient and reliable D2676 LOH 6-cylinder diesel engine, which meets the Euro 6 emission standard. The MAN TipMatic 12-speed automated gearbox, including an integrated retarder, will guarantee a smooth and quiet driving style.
The extensive range of comfort-boosting features will make the new team bus a feel-good environment and a key private space for the players. Along with built-in table and leg support systems in the front row, all 32 leather passenger seats are equipped with adjustable headrests. The four height-adjustable tables with seats facing each other offer space to engage in conversation with the coaching and support staff. And the exclusive kitchen at the rear of the vehicle boasts a number of impressive extras. The players’ physical well-being is sure to be well catered to, thanks to the kitchen’s microwave and steam ovens, three refrigerators, sink facilities, a fully automatic coffee machine, and ample room to prepare and store food and beverages.
And high-tech multimedia equipment will ensure top-notch entertainment before and after the match, leaving nothing to be desired with satellite TV, a media server, five monitors in the passenger area, a sound system with additional speakers and subwoofers, HDMI ports, premium Wi-Fi with LTE reception and USB ports.
Custom seat covers with a Bayern Munich design, ambient LED lighting in the club’s colors, a starlight headliner to help the stars relax and two logo projectors on the vehicle doors provide an atmosphere closely reflecting.
The bus’ considerable 500 hp (368 kW) will power the team’s trip to their domestic tie against their visitors from the Rhineland, along with all other games in the 2018-19 season.
