(MCI) delivered two special edition J4500s, featuring luxurious interiors and the latest in clean engine technology, to Sheboygan, Wis.-based Discovery Coach.

Discovery’s new J4500s are equipped with a Cummins engine and ZF Astronic transmission that use ultra low sulfur fuel, which reduces particulate matter by 90 percent from previous models.

Meanwhile, onboard, the coach features extra leg-room with spacious Amaya seating and airline-style tray tables, a high-end Blaupunkt entertainment system with six flat-screen video monitors, enhanced lighting, satellite radio and television, and Wi-Fi connectivity. There are also 110-volt outlets throughout the cabin for passengers who have electronic devices to use or recharge.

MCI built the special edition models to commemorate its 75th anniversary.
