Volvo Diesel D24T drag racing at GIR midnight madness

Second pass, racing an obviously much faster Mustang. This time I tried building some Boost but the lights dropped before I was ready, and only managed about 3lbs off the line. Its a big turd off the line but at least it wasn't spinning its ass off. Time was improved, 17.2@83mph. Still slow though. It really needs the manual trans!

Volvo Trucks continues with original marketing, this time through reality TV with the artist Mapei. During a nine-day road-trip through Europe, she will record a new music video with director Liza Minou Morberg. To help them, they have a Volvo truck filled with props and one of the world’s best drivers. The result can be seen in the TV series ‘Reality Road’. “With ‘Reality Road’ we want to show the strength of our service offerings,” says Per Nilsson, Director Public Relations Volvo Trucks. “For a truck to stay on the road, the services that are linked to it are just as important as the vehicle itself. At the same time, we want to produce TV entertainment that attracts a wider audience. As far as I know, no other company has used reality TV for marketing purposes,” he says. Accompanying Mapei on the journey are director Liza Minou Morberg, ‘Epic Split’ driver Jens Karlsson, miniature schnauzer Sushi and a specially designed Volvo FH. Over the course of nine days, they travel all the way from Sweden to Italy, a journey of more than 4,000 kilometres. “Million Ways to Live“ - the song in the musc video - will be included in Mapei´s forthcoming album, to be released this autumn. “I love to travel and to have the opportunity to meet new people and cultures. And that is also what “Million Ways to Live“ is about – being on the road and having the freedom to travel. It is the ultimate song for a road trip,” says Mapei. In addition to seeing Volvo Trucks’ services being put to the test in various ways in the TV series, you can follow Mapei as she gets acquainted with and challenges the trucking world. Among other things, we see her when she performs with drag show artists on a truck ferry to Poland, arranges a spontaneous gig in the suburbs of Paris, or accompanies a two wheel stunt in Berlin. The series comprises a total of eight episodes. The first three are published on Volvo Trucks’ YouTube channel on June 11.

Volvo FM Methane Diesel
Volvo FM MethaneDiesel subscribe to the link for More Related videos! Alternative fuel-powered vehicles for use in heavy and long-distance transport operations are a must considering today's environmental concern, and Volvo Trucks is well aware of that. The Swedish manufacturer has thus launched its new Volvo FM MethaneDiesel truck, which is powered by up to 75 percent by gas. The company has become the first manufacturer in Europe to employ gas-powered trucks in long-haul operations, by using liquefied gas in an efficient diesel engine. According to the manufacturer, this technology with natural gas generates 10 percent lower CO2 emissions than a diesel engine. Volvo Trucks also aims for greater availability and use of biogas, which reduces CO2 emissions still further - up to 70 percent compared with a conventional diesel engine. In addition, since the price of natural gas is often significantly lower than that of diesel, financial savings are also possible. The Volvo FM MethaneDiesel is offered with a 13-litre engine producing 460 horsepower and 2300 Nm of torque. The fuel consists of up to 75 percent liquefied gas and the rest diesel, but the proportions can vary depending on how the vehicle is used. If the gas tank runs dry, the system automatically switches over to diesel. The driver is alerted via a control lamp that comes on in the instrument panel. It will initially be sold in Europe, with plans to build about 100 trucks in 2011. Series production will get under way in August. Other parts of the world will follow.
