Now that the 90kmph Speed limit is gone after the 1.4.12 patch, does anybody know which is the fastest truck in the game and what speeds it can achieve?
I have mangaed to reach speeds of 140kph in my Scania. I wanna know if others have achieved better speeds with the same or other trucks.– SamyamSep 4, 2013 at 11:44
update! reached 156 kmph with my Scania R630 on a flat road.Need more updates on other trucks.– SamyamOct 26, 2013 at 16:33
Depends on what you consider fastest. If by "fastest" you understand acceleration, then the quickest truck should be the Volvo with 750HP and the 6-speed gearbox. The second quickest would be the Scania, again, with the 6-speed gearbox. The 6-speed just shifts gears a lot faster than the rest. If you want the fastest as in top speed, it gets a bit more complicated. Top speed is governed by several factors: horsepower, RPM limit, last gear ratio and differential ratio. We will assume that the tyre diameter is the same for all trucks.– user1969903Sep 26, 2022 at 6:51
People assume the fastest is the Volvo (see the current highest ranked answer) until I start gapping them with what is in fact the fastest truck, simply because they overlook the above factors, specifically, the RPM limit which, on the Volvo, is limited to 2000. Let's assume that all trucks have the same tyre with a diameter equal to 1.04 meters. That would mean the circumference is 1.04m * PI = 3.27m. So, the wheel, spinning at 1 RPM, would travel with a speed of 3.27 meters per minute, or 0.1962 Km/H.– user1969903Sep 26, 2022 at 7:17
The best gear box (for top speed) is the gearbox with the smallest final drive ratio. For the Volvo, that would be the I-Shift ATO3512D(R), with a last gear ratio of 0.78, diff ratio of 3.08 and, therefore, a final drive ratio of 3.08*0.78 ~2.4. This means that the Volvo's top speed is 2000 RPM / 2.4 * 0.1962 = 163.5 KM/h. Taking the Volvo with this gearbox for a drive you would see that it would not travel faster than 163 KMH.– user1969903Sep 26, 2022 at 7:17
The fastest is the truck from Volvo, the globetrotter XL. It gets unlocked at Level 16, it has 750 horsepower and produces a torque of 3500nM. It goes up to 165 with load.
The fastest truck in Euro Truck Simulator is the Scania R730.
With 730Hp, it is the most powerful engine in Euro Truck Simulator 2.
It is the most expensive one from Scania (and the game), costing 212.430 Euros.
You can buy it in Milano (Italy), Hannover (Germany) or Manchester (England).
(Maybe you can buy it in another stand, I didn't search them all)
Could you let me know what speeds have you achieved with this truck without any trailers?– SamyamAug 30, 2013 at 19:02
I didn't since I drove a MAN in my save. In a little search, I found this video on YouTube where the author reaches 301 km/h (187 mph): youtu.be/8vTN_vo7pEc– EduSep 3, 2013 at 23:42
That is clearly modded, and it says so in the description. That thing has 10,000bhp. If this is the basis for your answer then sorry, it is not right.– SamyamSep 4, 2013 at 11:42
Scania R with DC16 21 730 euro 5 v8 engine: 730hp, 16 liters– user55267Sep 16, 2013 at 10:33
All trucks can get to 130+ km/h regardless of the engine, granted some cannot get to that speed on straights. I'm still driving my starter Volvo with a 700hp engine at level 10 and have no problem reaching that speed even in straights.
