Volvo Truck is promoting its new I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission, and it took on a 1,360hp Koenigsegg One:1 on track. How is this a fair fight you wonder?
The challenge was to see if the Volvo truck can cover one lap of the Knutstorp race track quicker than the Koenigsegg can cover two laps.
The Volvo FH truck was driven by experienced motor racing personality Tiff Needell. He had never raced in a truck before.
