A new Setra TopClass team coach for the players of FC U Craiova 1948.

The Romanian team FC U Craiova 1948, a newcomer to the top league, relies on quality and performance. This can also be seen in its choice of a new team coach: a Setra S 517 HDH.

From this summer, Romanian football club FC U Craiova 1948 is playing in the country’s top league. In keeping with this rise in sporting fortunes, the players, coaches and staff will, in future, travel to their games in absolute first-class style. From the outside, the new team coach, a Setra S 517 HDH, makes a confident statement with its striking vinyls. On the inside, the exclusive furnishings, all of them in the club colours, score highly in terms of comfort.

The club corner in the rear can be used for more than just meetings.

Arriving fresh and rested at the stadium, then recuperating already on the way home? With its outstanding furnishings, the Setra team coach offers the perfect environment for the football pros to reach their full potential and top performance. Premium seats in the S 517 HDH with leather inserts and hand-stitched team logos ensure optimal comfort on the road. They can be leant back, and the head and footrests individually adjusted. Every seat has a reading light, speaker and socket to charge phones and laptops.

So that the players can always be looking up, when battling for the title, the new team bus has a panoramic glass roof. The high-quality furnishings of the Setra TopClass also include a club corner that can be used for meetings. Creature comforts during the drive are provided to players and their support staff thanks to a fully equipped kitchen.

The Setra team coach is in the top league in terms of comfort and safety standards.

The Setra S 517 HDH provides the power needed with its 375 kW / 510 PS motor. The super-high-decker has a Mercedes-Benz GO 250-8 automated 8-gear manual transmission, meaning that – just like in a good football team – all the elements interlock perfectly when it’s on the go.

The safety package in the FC U Craiova 1948 team coach is also absolutely top-league. The Setra S 517 HDH is fitted with the Active Brake Assist 4 (ABA 4) emergency braking system. What is important on the road, and on the pitch, is having an all-round view. The Setra driver is aided in this by Sideguard Assist: using radar and cameras attached to the vehicle, the system warns the driver about any danger arising during a right turn. The safety package is rounded off by a Lane Assistant (SPA), Tyre Pressure Manager (TPM) and Attention Assist (AtAs).
