Can a truck actually race
against a fast sports car? Yes, a Volvo FH will race against one of the world's
fastest sports cars. This is the scenario in Volvo Trucks' upcoming film 'Volvo
Trucks vs Koenigsegg'. The aim is to put the new I-Shift Dual Clutch gearbox,
based on sports car technology, to the ultimate test. At Volvo trucks, the
surprises never cease.
"Matching a Volvo FH
against Koenigsegg One:1 is the perfect challenge to see if our newly launched
I-shift Dual Clutch gearbox lives up to expectations in terms of driveability
and driving comfort that comes with seamless gear shifting," says Per
Nilsson, PR Director at Volvo Trucks.
Behind the wheel of the Volvo
FH will be former racing driver Tiff Needell, who is today a presenter on the
British motoring TV series Fifth Gear. The race takes place at Ring Knutstorp
in southern Sweden, a track known for its hills and sharp curves.
The film about the race 'Volvo
Trucks vs Koenigsegg' premieres at Volvo Trucks' Youtube Channel on November
