The model - this was one of a pair of Centroliners released on 16th June 2018, the other being a pearlescent green liveried example featuring AP132 (see KMB2018068).

The bus - Kowloon Motor Bus placed an initial order for 20 Neoplan N4026 Centroliners and the first arrived in Hong Kong in September 1998. This bus was allocated Fleet No. AP1 and registered  HY 1677. The Centroliner is a 12-metre low-floor double-decker and like the Dennis Tridents, is powered by a Cummins M11-305E engine.
