This Koenigsegg One:1 Vs. Volvo Truck Ad Is Ridiculously Wonderful

When we first saw that a Volvo Truck was going to race a Koenigsegg One:1 last week, you could've definitely colored us excited. The end result is, as most things in life, kind of disappointing. But if you skip the fat infomercial bit in the middle, it's still a fantastic race.


I mean, it's got a Koenigsegg One:1 in it. Any race with such a cornucopia of Swedish insanity is going to be a great race. You know why we've never done a Question of the Day asking "what race with a Koenigsegg One:1 in it would be a bad race?"

Mostly because it's a terrible question, but also because there is no answer.

Fifth Gear host Tiff Needell blathers on in amazement about the Volvo Truck having an automatic gearbox for a while, but skip ahead to 4:30 if you want to see the juicy bits. The ad proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that a fancy new truck is definitely 100% half as fast as the ridiculously amazing hypercar.



Is there a reason why cab-over trucks are popular in Europe but incredibly rare in the States?
