Rheinmetall High Altitude Truck Expedition – The HX trucks

Two Rheinmetall MAN HX trucks are aiming to break a maximum altitude record for vehicles by climbing to an altitude of 6,690 or more metres. The objective is to reach the crater edge on the Ojos del Salado, the highest active volcano in the world at 6,890 m. Based on the Rheinmetall MAN series, a few sections of the vehicles are equipped with special parts which are essential to handle the altitude, extreme environmental conditions and steeply inclined volcano slope with a largely cobbled surface.
