Volvo 850 R BTCC ex Rydell on track
During the last edition of the Mugello Motor Fest has made its appearance this beautiful and ex Rickard Rydell official Volvo 850 R BTCC. A rarity and an unexpected surprise to see run the car in the racing cars time sessions. In the hands of Rydell the Volvo 850 R won the English Touring car championship in 1998 and in 1995 the driver made 13 pole position in 24 races! Strangely, the season of the 850 series began in collaboration with TWR in 1994 using the station-wagon variant that behaved fairly well. Since 1995, it passed to employ a sedan with good results until it reaches the BTCC title in 1998. The car is equipped with a 5-cylinder 2000 CC with more than 290 hp and 6-speed sequential gearbox. As you can see extensive use of carbon fiber inside and pneumatic system for lifting. Durante l'ultima edizione del Mugello motor Fest ha fatto la sua comparsa questa splendida Volvo 850 R BTCC ex Rickard Rydell, una vera rarità ed un'inaspettata sorpresa vederla girare nei turni dedicate alle auto da corsa. Auto ex ufficiale, in mano a Rydell la Volvo 850 R ha vinto nel 1998 il campionato inglese turismo e nella stagione 1995 partì dalla pole su 24 gare! Stranamente la stagione agonistica della serie 850 iniziò grazie alla collaborazione con la TWR nel 1994 utilizzando la variante station-wagon che si comportò discretamente bene. Dal 1995 si passò ad impiegare la versione berlina con buoni risultati fino al raggiungimento titolo BTCC appunto nel 1998. L'auto è dotata del 5 cilindri di 2.000 CC portato ad oltre 290 CV e cambio sequenziale a 6 marce. Come potete vedere ampio uso di fibra di carbonio nell'abitacolo e sistema pneumatico di sollevamento.

► 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.
