Meeting the challenges of today's competitive and customer oriented transportation environment requires quick actions. Navistar's Advanta Concept Truck was developed in a very short time period, barely two months from concept to show truck. A newly engineered model with a new technology engine and new interior contributed to the exciting product content. New technologies such as Solids Modeling and Rapid Prototyping made some of the features possible. Following several months of shows around the country, another challenge began. “Clones” and kit parts were made from the concept truck.
