December 22, 2005. The iF design award numbers among the most prestigious design competitions in the world.  The internationally respected designers in the jury allocate this honour in twelve categories and the new Panther has captured its prize in the company of highly successful products such as the new BMW 3.

The new Panther made its public debut at the "Interschutz" fire-fighting technology trade fair in Hanover in June 2005. With this superlative ARFF vehicle, Rosenbauer has established new benchmarks with regard to design and engineering.

The 8x8 Panther model has eight powered wheels, an operating weight of 40 t, 14,500 l of extinguishing agents and a maximum speed of 140 kph and is the airport vehicle for dealing with aircraft of the dimensions of the Airbus A380.

Four units of this top model were ordered in June 2005 by Dubai International Airport. At the air show held in Dubai at the end of November, one of the new vehicles was received with an enthusiastic public response.

At present, Dubai International Airport is one of the world’s fastest growing airports and with the Emirates Airlines fleet will be the largest home base for the Airbus A380.

Shortly after Dubai, the success of the new Panther was freshly underlined by the Turkish Civil Aviation Authority, which ordered six Panthers for the airports in Istanbul, Ankara and Antalya. Contracts have also been received from the airports in Berlin, Newcastle and Belfast.

A list of all the iF product design award winners is available from the press department of iF design for downloading under www.ifdesign.de . 50 "design Oscars", the iF gold awards, will be presented during the award ceremony at the CeBIT on March 9, 2006.
