The Mack Super-Liner is a class 8 heavy-duty truck that was introduced by Mack Trucks in 1977, to replace the Mack RW (R-Western) model.[1] Its production lasted for fifteen years until it was discontinued in 1993. The model designation is RW. Mack Trucks Australia still manufactures the Super-Liner as a lighter-duty version of the Mack Titan.

In 1988, Mack Trucks Australia made 16 special edition SuperLiner II Bicentennials with the E9-500 V8, Mack 12 speed triple countershaft transmission, Mack front and rear axles, long taper-leaf springs on front and camelback on the rear, Spicer 1810 HD driveshafts and 5842mm (230 inch) wheelbase. The special limited edition models were named after people influential to Australian history, including James Cook, Captain Bligh, Ludwig Leichhardt, Governor Phillip, Ned Kelly, Kingsford Smith, and John Flynn. One remaining example is operated by Eagle Towing Service, of Ringwood Victoria and has since been converted to a heavy towing salvage truck. [2]

This truck is also the inspiration of the character "Mack" in the Movie "Cars".
