In order to be low-floor, the radiator of the Super Olympian is relocated under the staircase. Also, the crocks are located on top of the offside front wheel. Therefore, the staircase needs to be moved backward and less space can be used for installation of seats on the lower deck. Volvo D10 engine, which produces 285hp and a torque level of 1,200 Nm, is used to power this bus. Super Olympian is available in three standard lengths: 12, 11.3 and 10.6 metres.
The first completely built up Super Olympian arrived in Hong Kong in May 1999. The bus was fitted with a 12-metre Alexander ALX500 body which is a bit modifed from that of Dennis Tridents. The bus is 2.5 metres wide and 4.366 metres tall.
Besides Alexander, Volgren and Wright also designed bodies for Super Olympian. Wright Explorer are wide-bodied buses, with straight staircases and plug doors.
