Who will win?
Volvo Trucks have one hell of a marketing department and their latest commercial shows just how sporty their new trucks are. To showcase their new dual-clutch I-Shift gearbox, automotive legend, Tiff Needell took a Volvo FH to the track to race a Koenigsegg One:1.
“Being a racing driver, you’re never afraid. You are always confident in your machinery. I was a bit apprehensive about driving a truck on a racetrack, since I’d never done it before. However, after I had driven it for a while I began to have full confidence in the Volvo,” said Tiff Needel. “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.”
The competition seems a bit lopsided but the Koenigsegg One:1 was tasked with having to log two laps around the Knutstorp race circuit in Sweden while the Volvo FH only had to complete one.
We’re not going to spoil the results for you, but it is quite an impressive race.
