With their large frames, standing more than 180 centimetres tall and weighing around 100 kilograms on average, the chairs are reinforced all the way to their cushions, says Spanish body builder Beulas.

The new Scania Glory VIP coach will not go unnoticed in Toulouse, whose city team is the current 2019 table leader of the European rugby calendar.

Said to feature an unparalleled aesthetic with its black and red body painted in the colours of Stade Toulousain, the coach was customised and ordered from Scania and Beulas by Transports Faur – a specialist in passenger transport in Toulouse – and official carrier of Stade Toulousain rugby club.

"We wanted a personalised vehicle," said manager of Transports Faur, Lilian Faur. "This new vehicle offers the very best to the Stade Toulousain team: an exceptional coach that matches the club’s ranking in European rugby."

"Reliability, robustness, fuel consumption and customer service. For me, there is nothing better than Scania!" proclaimed Faur.

UNIQUE COACH

It’s based on a three-axle Scania chassis, one of which is a rear steering axle for manoeuvrability, with a 12-speed gearbox and a 490hp engine. The camber was remodelled to fit the needs of the club, Scania says.

There are 41 seats in the coach, instead of the standard 73 seats in the basic version, meaning more than 90 centimetres of legroom, and a seat designed with a spacer that gives an extra 10 centimetres to allow for the players’ wide shoulders.

A MATTER OF CHOICE

As the initiator of this first collaboration between Scania and Beulas, Faur said: "I was looking for a unique, high-quality vehicle from partners who could provide me with custom proposals. The Scania chassis is adaptable, the Beulas camber is semi-artisanal and it has a Spanish design that I particularly like. "
