Looks like a rebadged DAF tractor.  Likely could a new unit marketed by Kenworth in Australia.  I can't find anything on it though.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Whatever it is, if it sells, that's only because the quality is head & shoulders above any competition. Nobody's buying that for the appearance.

Like the song says, everybody, needs somebody, & only its mama is gonna love that gal.

Photoshop.
Daf is selling under it's own name in Australia,even the big cab.
I think it is a Argosy-chassis they photoshopped under it.

Na that's a K200 step setup so it might just be a mockup/test version

If it's a photoshop, its actually pretty real looking. This is a DAF XF cab connected to the bottom of a K200. The fenders, steps are from the Kenworth, but the rest is all DAF. If not photoshop maybe a prototype? DAF is already in Australia so it would make no sense to market both nameplates. I definitely like the way the real K200 looks much better than whatever this is though ;D

Werkhorse,if it is a mockup,why does it have quater fenders which are illegal in Australia/NZ?

Jon,it could be they will use this cab because the old K200 isn't setup to use with the latest EPA10/EURO6 engines.
I really don't know...........guess this story will have a "to be continued"  :)

That's a good point as well. The K200 is only two years old, so I would have thought Kenworth would have had the new regulations in mind when they designed this truck, but who knows.

I talked to a mate who works at Kenworth in the R&D department and he said it is photoshopped definitely
Bear Grills calls it Man vs Wild
Aussies call it camping

At one time, KW did indeed make a beautiful COE.

It was called, "The Bullnose".

Nobody had to photoshop that one.
