Volvo’s planning to top its ‘Epic Split’ stunt

When Volvo teamed up with action star Jen Claudde van Damme for its “Epic Split” stunt back in 2013, it did more to make trucks cool than, well, anyone in history. Now the team behind that stunt is back with a very tough truck…and a small child.

In a press release sent to Motorburn, Volvo says its next Live Test “exposes the Volvo FMX construction truck to the ultimate challenge”.

“We have launched a number of new functions for the Volvo FMX during the last year that help make the truck unbeatable with regard to strength and traction. To open people’s eyes as to how much the truck can actually take, we’ve exposed it to the toughest test we could think of,” says Ingela Nordenhav, Global Marketing and Communication Director for Volvo Trucks.

What the new test actually involves will be revealed on 3 December when the film will be premiered on Volvo Trucks’ YouTube channel.
