Volvo Trucks – The Flying Passenger (Live Test)


Watch a Volvo FH truck towing a paraglider in a world’s first precision stunt. How did they do it? Please comment, like and share.

This Live Test was set up to demonstrate the performance of Volvo Trucks’ unique powertrain with the I-Shift Dual Clutch gearbox. To keep the paraglider in flying, the truck had to keep up its speed even when driving on demanding roads up a mountain pass.

Find out more about how to maintain speed and still save fuel:

Watch the How It Works-video:

Meet the driver and the paraglider:

The truck used in the Live Test truck is a Volvo FH 540 with the updated D13 engine and I-Shift Dual Clutch gearbox:

Filmed in a closed-off area in the Dinaric Alps, Croatia.
Directed by Nabil.
Original soundtrack by Daniel Heath.

  5. Notably, they did not show the pilot's attachment to the truck. With a decent paragliding tow winch on the back of the truck, the stunt is attributable to the good winch, not the Volvo truck.  Good for fooling most people, though 🙂 …

  6. Вольво оштрафовали за сговор с другими компаниями,потому что они специально завышали цены на грузовики и их запчасти,что привело к повышению цен на все перевозимые товары.Давайте вместе порадуемся этому и поставим им дизлайк !!!

    Sorry Volvo. Your adds are great but this one's not.
