[VIDEO] Amazing Volvo Trucks ‘Flying Passenger’ Ad From Croatia


Volvo Trucks is back with another amazing advert.

In the latest advert released on 29 November 2016, a Volvo FH truck tows a paraglider up a mountain pass in Croatia in the world’s first precision stunt.

“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.”

The ad is the latest installment in a series of amazing Volvo Live Test ads, which included the famous Jean-Claude Van Damme ‘epic split’.

The ad was filmed in a closed-off area in the Dinaric Alps, Croatia and was the creation of agency Forsman Forsman & Bodenfors.
