  • Five reds. Wait till they go off.

  • Whoa.

  • This is a Volvo FH. That was a Koenigsegg One:1.

  • I'm Tiff Needell, driving the world's first truck with a dual-clutch gearbox

  • based on sports car technology.

  • Coming up, I test-drive a Volvo FH with the new I-Shift Dual Clutch gearbox

  • at the Ring Knutstorp race circuit in Sweden,

  • and we also get to borrow the world's first megacar, a Koenigsegg One:1,

  • for an ultimate duel,

  • where I challenge Koenigsegg's test driver to a race.

  • I reckon we can do one lap in the truck

  • faster than the Koenigsegg can do two.

  • Now, I know what you're thinking.

  • On the one hand we have a state-of-the-art heavy haulage machine,

  • the Volvo FH,

  • on the other, the streamlined Koenigsegg One:1,

  • two totally different vehicles built for totally different purposes.

  • So why bring a super car to a truck test?

  • Well, Volvo claim that under the hood of this truck

  • lies the heart of a sports car.

  • So I'm here to see if there's any sense in that claim.

  • What better candidate for a comparison than the Koenigsegg One:1,

  • the first ever megacar?

  • In racing and sports cars, this sort of gearbox technology

  • has been around since the mid '80s,

  • its main purpose to provide faster acceleration,

  • a pretty nifty feature in a racing car.

  • But in a truck, its function is a little bit more than that.

  • Having spent most of my life

  • behind steering wheels of various racing, sports

  • and even Formula One cars,

  • I see myself as a fairly competent test driver.

  • But to help me with some of the technicalities of the truck,

  • I've brought along an expert on the subject.

  • Jeff Bird, Volvo Trucks press test director,

  • who's gonna tell me all about this wonderful new gearbox.

  • I certainly am, Tiff, but I'm a little concerned

  • about what you have planned for us.

  • The challenge. No, don't worry about that. We'll sort that out later.

  • First let's drive this truck. I think I'd better get down to work.

  • Release the handbrake and we're ready to drive.

  • Hey.

  • Oh, bit narrow here.

  • It feels too big to me, Jeff.

  • Not at all. You can handle this, Tiff, no problem.

  • Hairpin.

  • Squealing tyres already.

  • Does it have a kick-down or not?

  • Yes, it has a kick-down. Just press that pedal to the floor.

  • Open the throttle and that is frisky. It leaps off.

  • Acceleration is impressive for a truck.

  • Mind you, I'm not carrying a trailer behind me. I'm cheating slightly.

  • We're only running at eight tons on the track here today.

  • I tell you, this corners really well.

  • Very light on the steering and responsive.

  • I thought I'd be turning like a knob on the wheel to get more lock on.

  • - Brakes. - Pretty good.

  • They work. Yeah, OK. I'm having fun. Actually, I'm having too much fun.

  • We're supposed to be here to talk about this wonderful gearbox.

  • So if I stop on this hill...

  • So now I wanna do a hill start. I'm in third gear now.

  • Gentle acceleration.

  • Four, I didn't feel that. Five... I haven't felt a single gear change.

  • Four, five, six, eight.

  • Seamless gear changes improves drivability and more comfortable.

  • What are you aiming at, the purpose, the main thing you've introduced?

  • Trucks don't need to be like racing cars. What's the main aim?

  • It improves performance, hill-climb performance, acceleration,

  • but also drivability and comfort, of course.

  • I'm very comfortable.

  • Right, where's that Koenigsegg?

  • OK, Jeff, because these nice people at Koenigsegg

  • have lent us their first ever megacar,

  • I thought we ought to have a little challenge.

  • Yes, that's what's been worrying me all day.

  • Nothing can possibly go wrong.

  • Look, we obviously can't compare these two vehicles directly,

  • but I reckon we can do one lap in the truck

  • faster than the Koenigsegg can do two.

  • So it's us in an eight-ton truck

  • racing against one of the fastest cars in the world.

  • - What could possibly go wrong? - Relax. I'm feeling really confident.

  • Aren't you, Robert?

  • See? That's Robert Serwanski. He's Koenigsegg's official test driver.

  • He's relaxed, and we're about to find out if he's any good or not.

  • So, just to give you a few numbers.

  • The car has 1360 horsepower and weighs 1360kg,

  • which makes it the first ever series produced super car

  • with a one to one power to weight ratio.

  • It also has 1371 Newton metres of torque.

  • The truck has a 540 horsepower engine

  • that produces 2600 Newton metres of torque,

  • which is almost double that of the car.

  • Hey. Feel the torque of the engine.

  • Fantastic.

  • Engage gear.

  • Wait for these lights. How's he looking? A bit small.

  • I think he's worried, Tiff.

  • Red lights are coming on.

  • Five reds. Wait till they go off.

  • Whoa.

  • Jeff, we need to accelerate faster. The Koenigsegg's gone.

  • I've just gone over to 95.

  • I'd better brake for the corner. Nearly forgot.

  • Whoa. She's sliding now, Jeff. She's sliding.

  • He may have accelerated fast,

  • but he's got all these corners, he's got two laps to do.

  • It's lovely. This is much more fun than I thought it was ever gonna be.

  • My God. This is exciting.

  • Can you see him? Has he disappeared?

  • He's gone. He's heading down the main straight already.

  • What do they call this corner?

  • This is called the idiot corner, justifiably so.

  • Understeered.

  • And then it lights up the rear.

  • We're nearly there. Where's the mirrors?

  • I can just see him coming.

  • He's already coming. I can't believe it.

  • - Go, go, go! - We can hold on.

  • Here he comes.

  • He's not coming through there. I've chopped him.

  • - Oh, no! He's coming this side. - No.

  • We made it across the finish line in one piece.

  • We so nearly won that.

  • But at least we've proved that the Volvo truck

  • is half as fast as a Koenigsegg One:1.

Five reds. Wait till they go off.
