In 1992 a final batch of Ikarus 263 was delevired. Newer Ikarus buses would be of the Alfa-design. The 263.08 differed from the 263.04 by having a ZF rather than an MVG rear axle and an MVG front axle instead of a LIAZ one. The DAF LT160 engine and Voith Diwa 863 transmission/gearbox were the same. The lack of an airconditioning meant these buses were withdrawn around 2002, except for a batch that was rebuilt and remained in service a few years longer (see next page).
