Kanga Coach­lines has added a Volvo Sig­na­ture Se­ries B11R 3-axle coach with an ex­clu­sive high gloss black fin­ish and pre­mier ‘black as night’ win­dow tint­ing to its fleet.

The ve­hi­cle has a Coach Con­cepts body de­sign, is op­er­ated by the Maw­son Lakes-based Kanga Coach­lines, and has become a favourite of the Ade­laide Crows foot­ball team.

Kanga Coach­lines has more than 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence trans­port­ing cus­tomers through­out South Aus­tralia and be­yond, and now boasts 45 buses and coaches.

“I wanted to con­tinue to push the lim­its within the bus and tourism in­dus­try,” Kanga Coach­lines CEO Julian Roeger says.

“I wanted to do some­thing which was more ex­cit­ing and in­no­va­tive than what is usu­ally out there in the mar­ket.

“It is pi­o­neer­ing, but I am con­fi­dent it will work and give pas­sen­gers an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” he says.

“It caters to the high- end tour­ing, global celebrity vis­its, sport­ing teams and cor­po­rate part­ners who are need­ing to travel into Ade­laide for big events or work con­fer­ences, plus also those based here want­ing to travel in com­fort, safety and style in­ter­state.”

Seat­ing ca­pac­ity and floor space ad­justa­bil­ity means the in­ter­nal lay­out can be cus­tomised to suit all needs – just a few seats and loads of room to walk around, or up to 46 leather low-slung Sty­leride seats.

This coach also con­tains a kitch­enette at the rear.

The Volvo B11R 3-axle chas­sis has a Volvo I-Shift 12-speed man­ual gear­box with au­to­matic gear chang­ing sys­tem. The I-Shift trans­mis­sion is fac­tory pre­pared for in­stal­la­tion with or with­out a com­pact re­tarder.

The 11-litre in-line 6-cylin­der diesel D11C en­gine, with tur­bocharger and in­ter­cooler, pro­duces 450hp (332kW) at 1600-1900rpm and 2150Nm 950-1400rpm.

The I-Shift trans­mis­sion is smart, in­no­va­tive and adap­tive to all ter­rains and con­di­tions.

It al­lows users to choose be­tween fully au­to­matic gear changes or man­ual se­lec­tion, and has a per­for­mance mode with a kick-down func­tion that utilises the en­gine’s ca­pac­ity to the max­i­mum.
