Tata Prima Truck Racing 4038.S units get power from a 8.9 Cummins diesel engine mated to an 8 speed gearbox offering 370 bhp power and 158 kgm torque. This year top speed has been increased to 130 Km/h (132-135) over last year’s 110 Km/h (115-117).

With new exteriors, Prima Truck Racing units in 2015 use lighter aggregates. A lower chassis height makes for improved centre of gravity.
