► VOLVO TRUCK STUNT
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 S80 4.4 V8 with CUSTOM EXHAUST on snow&ice (redneck style)
Winter drive in Volvo S80 with a Yamaha's 4.4 B8444S 315 HP engine. Driving on snow and ice doing donuts and drifting around. All V8 Volvos have AWD systems as standard. Check what you can do with this car with ESC still ON as Volvo doesn't allow to turn the system OFF. All you can do is disable DSTC traction control. The point of this video is to let you hear how nicely the car sounds with an aftermarket, custom-made Exhaust system which has been made by Moto Wydech (http://www.motowydech.eu). You can see more videos of this Volvo on my channel. Recorded with GoPro Hero 3 Black edition in 1080p full HD and 60 fps. View both inside cabin and from the camera mounted on the car. Cheers!





Volvo S80 4.4 V8 with no exhaust - sound from the inside, in the garage
Preparing my S80 4.4 V8 for a custom-made Exhaust system. This is what it sounds like with everything after first catalytic converters removed. Insane sound, lacks deep tones though.
