Volvo FH Truck challenges Koenigsegg One:1 on a Race Track

Volvo published another crazy Volvo Truck video. We all remember the epic split with Van Damm video. This time around Volvo is challenging a super sports car with over 1,000hp.

The new Volvo Truck video is set to go viral as it puts a huge Volvo Truck against the Koenigsegg One:1 super sports car. In Volvo Trucks' new film ‘Volvo Trucks vs Koenigsegg’, motor racing personality Tiff Needell drives a Volvo FH truck against one of the world's fastest sports cars the Koenigsegg One:1. Volvo wants to show off the new I-Shift Dual Clutch gearbox, based on a technique used in sports cars.

The Koenigsegg One:1 is capable of 0–400 km/h in less than 20 seconds. Behind the wheel of the truck sits the experienced motor racing personality Tiff Needell, who normally presents the British motoring program Fifth Gear. 

Without revealing the results (watch the video below to find out), Tiff Needell admits he was impressed by the performance of the truck.

 “I-Shift Dual Clutch is absolutely incredible. It is particularly noticeable on slopes, the truck does not hold back – it just flows smoothly, without the gear changes being felt. When you brake, it switches down very softly and comfortably. The truck definitely has the heart of a sports car,” says Tiff Needell.

Last year Volvo landed a huge viral hit with the Epic split video starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. The new Volvo Truck Ad is likely not going to be that successful, but it is quite entertaining and to see the Koenigsegg One:1 on a race track is always great.
