The TurboStar was an Iveco truck produced from 1984 to 1993, and was replaced by the Iveco EuroStar.
When the Turbostar was first introduced, two engines were available: a straight-six (13,798 cc) with an output of 243 kW (330 hp) and a V8 cylinder (17 174 cm³) with 309 kW (420 hp). Both engines were jointly developed by Fiat and Iveco. The 6 had an intercooler and a turbocharger, and the V8 had two turbochargers and no intercooling.
The standard transmission for the Turbostar was the ZF EcoSplit 16, with 16 synchronised gears. There were optional transmissions for both engines. The six-cylinder could have an Eaton twin-splitter transmission (12 gears), and the eight-cylinder was available with an Eaton Fullergetriebe (13 gears). In addition, there was also a semiautomatic SAMT from Eaton available as well. An anti-lock brake system was initially optional and later installed as standard.
From 1991 to 1993 when it was superceded by the Eurostar, a “Special HP” (HP for “High Performance”) was available. Compared to the standard production vehicles, the Special had a much larger range of standard features including improved trim and accessories.
