Road Trip – The new Actros 2012 Calendar

No other vehicle embodies the fascination of long-distance haulage more than the new Actros. Specialist automotive photographer Manu Agah accompanied twelve drivers on tours throughout Europe – capturing an impressive range of images. A selection of these pictures were used in the Actros 2012 Calendar. The calendar is a highly personal collage of authentic images, featuring the Actros as the primary subject. Each collage tells its own story: Meeting new people, stunning routes and landscapes, local souvenirs, everyday objects and little mementos. Get ready for adventures great and small in an exciting journey through the year. Experience the passion for a unique profession and a unique new truck.

The calendar in format 80 x 55 cm is available via the Webshop at

The New Actros 2012 Calendar screensaver

As in previous years, the 2012 Calendar is also available as a screensaver. It displays all twelve black & white images as a slide show, but can also be set to permanently display the current image for the month – or even just your favourite image. Apart from the conventional function of protecting the screen, the PC version of the 2012 Calendar features a diary function. It can be used to record, edit and display private or work-related appointments.
Open the diary view by launching the screensaver using the commercial vehicle calendar icon on the desktop. You can then access the appointment itself by clicking on a day in the week/month view.

How to install the screensaver:

PC: Double-click on the EXE file you downloaded (in ZIP format) to open the Installation Wizard.
The screensaver will be active after successful installation.
MAC: Download the file, double-click on the icon and follow instructions. The screensaver will be activated automatically.
