International ProStar R8

The International ProStar

A striking and widely accepted North American truck, the Prostar comes with the advantage of being built in New Zealand and modelled around NZTA regulations. International do not sacrifice precious payload, instead we use the right amount of high tensile alloy steel to do the job efficiently and safely for New Zealand conditions.

Designed as the world’s best in aerodynamics, the Prostar is shaped to have the lowest wind drag, slicing through high crosswinds. Drivers enjoy the wide visibility and steeply sloped hood giving a safe feel on the road. The Prostar generates the highest payload increasing your bottom line. This, along with having the highest approval rating and absolute respect from drivers makes the Prostar a winning package for astute operators.
