World's Longest Truck in Australia

According to Mr. Wikipedia, on February 18, 2006, an Australian built Mack truck with 112 semi-trailers, 1,300 tonnes (2,865,980 pounds) and 1,474.3 meters (4,836 ft 11 in) long, pulled the load 100 meters (328 feet) to recapture the record for the longest road train (multiple loaded trailers) ever pulled with a single prime mover.

It was on the main road of Clifton, Queensland, that 70-year-old John Atkinson claimed a new record, pulled by a tri-drive.

Dear Malaysia, are you interested to break this record? Come on, Malaysia Boleh! Before that, please check other long trucks around the world.
