Johor ruler Sultan Ibrahim ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar realised his dream when he took possession of the world’s most expensive Mack truck at a ceremony at King George Square in Brisbane’s central business district today.

The truck took a year to build at the manufacturer’s Wacol headquarters, south-west of Brisbane.

According to ABC News, the truck has some of the fanciest extras around, including a 6-camera closed-circuit television system, two flat-screen television sets, a stone-topped kitchen area, barbecue, double bed, and seats with 72,000 stitches of gold thread.

It also boasts a solid-gold tiger hood ornament.

“This is my dream – am I smiling?” the Sultan said of his “palace truck”.

The price tag is a well-kept secret, but smashes the previous record of A$481,000 for a customised truck. The Sultan said he was delighted with the end result.

“I have always appreciated Australia’s engineering skills and have collected a few Holden cars over the years. I am looking forward to showing its workmanship to the people of Johor as soon as the Super-Liner is shipped over,” he said.

The Sultan ordered the heavy duty truck to tow his power boat around the country. But his first drive will be for charity when it arrives in Malaysia at the end of this month.
