Volvo Trucks challenges one of the world's fastest sports cars - a Koenigsegg One:1

A Volvo FH in a 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.

"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 we find 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 11th 2014. See the teaser here: www.youtube.com/volvotrucks.
