Predecessor Iveco Turbostar

The EuroStar was a heavy-duty truck model produced by Iveco Magirus. It replaced the 1980s-designed Turbostar.

Different performance levels from three different capacity variants were initially available:

  • 6-cylinder 9.5 l providing 375 HP
  • 6-cylinder 13.8 l providing 420 HP, also fitted on the contemporary Eurotech model
  • 8280.42S 8-cylinder V, providing 514 HP

Starting from 1995, Eurostar could mount the new 8210.42S, a 6-cylinder 13.8 l with a power output of 469 HP. In correspondence with, also the possibility to use EuroTronic gearbox, having full or semiautomatic modes, was introduced. In 1998-1999 the Eurostar line received the new Cursor engines (initially limited to the Cursor 10, 10.3 l for 40 HP, later expanded to the more fortunate Cursor 13 with 460 HP or 480 HP).
