Custom Edition Kobelco is Top Drawer

Nobody “pimps up” there equipment like the Swedes, and this particular machine is yet another stunning example of what can be achieved.

Custom Edition Kobelco is Top Drawer

Swedish machinery sales business, Göranssons Maskiner AB based in Staffanstorp, are no strangers to preparing machines to a very high standard for its customers, and sometimes, just like this example, for promotional reasons.

This special edition Kobelco SK140SRLC-5 has been prepared to pay tribute to the iconic 1980’s movie classic Top Gun and to celebrate the follow up movie Top Gun: Maverick that, is set to be released later this year and will see Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer reprise their roles from the original movie.

The machine has been painted in F-14 grey paint, in reference to the famous Grumman Tomcat planes featured in the epic movie.

Other notable customizations include, additional lighting package, as per the usual Swedish standards, in cab improvements including embroidered leather seating, and specially designed control switches, with Top Gun emblems, and in addition some superb Top Gun related decals adorn the exterior of the machine. A set of MOBA GPS masts have also been custom made featuring the American stars and stripes.

I think you will agree it’s a very smart job that they have done with this machine, but hey, don’t take my word for it, watch the video below to find out more.
