Setra S 315 GT-HD coach at the Lufthansa Classic Days
S 315 GT-HD had its premiere in 1996
The S 315 GT-HD had its premiere at the International Motor Show in Hanover in September 1996. Even at the time, this high-decker coach from the 300 series built from 1991 to 2001 had numerous special equipment features on board. Bus operators were e.g. able to choose between different engine and transmission variants, retarders, air conditioning systems and door/seating configurations.
