This is a video recording of a Singapore Mercedes-Benz O405 bus. This particular bus has Hispano Carrocera bodywork and is fitted with a ZF 4-speed gearbox. Previously, this bus did not have aircon, but it has been fitted with an overhead aircon unit. This bus is a Woodlands Depot (WLDEP) bus, deployed on Service 61 ususally. But, it was deployed not on it's usual service when this video was taken. The bus was deployed on Service 173 that day. In the video, the bus is now at Hillview area, heading to Bukit Batok INT. Take note of how fast the bus is traveling up the steep slope of Jalan Batu Nilam. And apologies for the ending, where there are background conversations going on! This video was taken in April 2010.
