Volvo Trucks is going to challenge what is probably the most impressive supercar out there – the Koenigsegg One:1.
Volvo’s upcoming film, “Volvo Trucks vs. Koenigsegg” is going to put a truck versus an impressive Koenigsegg One:1 in order to test the I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission and it will show what happens when you put together a heavy duty Volvo truck against the impressive Koenigsegg One:1. The video will premiere at Volvo Trucks’ YouTube Channel, on the 11th of November, 2014.
“Matching a Volvo FH against Koenigsegg One:1 is the perfect challenge to see if our newly launched I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission lives up to expectations in terms of driveability and driving comfort that comes with seamless gear shifting”, said the PR Director from Volvo Trucks, Per Nilsson.
The Koenigsegg One:1 is packing a 5.0 liter V8 aluminum engine under its hood which is capable of producing no less than 1,341 HP (986 kW) and 1,371 Nm (1,011 lb-ft) of torque. The model has a 1:1 power to weight ratio, which is where its name is coming from. The 0 to 400 km/h sprint is made in 20 seconds and top speed stands at a whopping 450 km/h (280 mph). The supercar has been officially presented to the public earlier this year, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
