Austrian company Tieber GmbH has added a very special Setra coach to its fleet of vehicles in the guise of its first S 516 HDH model. It is also the first vehicle from the new TopClass 500 series to be delivered in Austria. For company owner Peter Tieber is was an easy choice. But while not wasting any time in sealing the perfect deal with his signature, he did not do so without due consideration: “The TopClass 500 ties in perfectly with our company philosophy.”
Based on the motto “Mit Stil ans Ziel” (“Travelling in Style”), the Styrian travel company now plans to deploy the three-axle vehicle on exclusive tours throughout Europe. Shortly after the official handover of the keys in front of more than 50 invited travel industry guests at the Setra Customer Center in Neu-Ulm, the vehicle took to the road to make its maiden voyage to Strasbourg and Colmar.
The 4-star luxury coach boasts 50 ergonomic “Setra Voyage Plus” passenger seats featuring lengthened seat cushions, heated window strips, 8-channel headphone system for each seat, 3 x 19-inch monitors, a coffee machine and toilet – in short everything to make travelling throughout Europe a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Ambient lighting also helps to provide harmonious lighting conditions in the vehicle interior when travelling at night. Peter Tieber, who had the luxury coach fitted out with all of the currently available safety systems, could barely contain his pride on taking delivery of the new showpiece vehicle: “With this coach Setra is fulfilling all of our requirements and also those of our passengers.”
