Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

It’s not often that you see a truck pitted against a race car. Seems like a quirky and wonderful thing to do. Of course Volvo is behind it!

Racing against the Volvo’s WTCC S60 Polestar TC1 is none other than the 2,400-horserpower Iron Knight truck. The same one that set the record for 500- and 1000-meter runs in August.

The race car has 400 HP to the front wheels. It is an utterly incredible shade of blue. The truck is a fucking beast.

That truck doesn’t look very aerodynamic. What’s the EPA rating on that thing?
