Yeah, it was a design experiment in the 90s that was supposed to decrease the blind spot. Useful for a city bus, but the rigidity is not as good like with standard A pillars.
Also if you scrape the corner of the bus, say goodbye to the whole glass! :D But it looked nice, very different from anything that was out back then.

LOL :D
This bus is from 2002 and has around 2.600.000 km on the clock. Never had downtime, rebuilds or overhauls. Just regular maintenance and a set of good drivers!

@CDMC It's really nothing special :D
@Plane And Simple That's the old MB quality! Apart from bodywork rust that plagues MB trucks and buses from early 2000s, they are mechanically sound and built like a tank!
