This is bus is one-of-a-kind. Built from the ground up as an off road vehicle, the body trim or the Torsus Praetorian is made of lightweight composite materials instead of metal. The body panels are made from tough fiberglass with a durable, scratch and corrosion resistant LINE-X coating.
It's hard to imagine a full size bus navigating an off road trail but the innovative Torsus Praetorian is the first of its kind to do just that. Built in the Czech Republic, the 4x4 bus is designed to transport personnel and equipment across rough ground and in tough conditions.
This is the world's first heavy duty off road bus.
WHY LINE-X FOR AN OFF ROAD COATING?
Not only does the bus have to function in uneven terrain, it has to have durable protection from off road hazards like rocks, brush, sticks, water, mud, etc. So in order to maintain the aesthetics and capability of the bus, the manufacturer had to find a surface coating that was lightweight, durable, water tight and could be pigmented to a buyer's needs - they chose LINE-X.
These heavy duty 4x4 buses have been sprayed with LINE-X and sold to customers in Eastern Europe, including a European military unit that will be using them as highly mobile emergency response ambulances.
