Video: Two-wheel stunt with a Volvo FH

June 12, 2015

In “Reality Road,” Volvo Trucks’ TV series, a Volvo FH is subjected to a true test of its strength when it is driven on two wheels at a location outside Berlin.

“A stunt of this sort demands a lot from both the driver and the vehicle,” stunt coordinator Peter Pedrero said.

In the third episode of Volvo Trucks' TV series ‘Reality Road', a truck is driven on two wheels at a test track outside Berlin. The stunt was performed when filming a scene for the music video with the artist Mapei, recorded during the series.

"Driving on two wheels requires enormous precision. The vehicle has to lean 45 degrees, if it leans less it will drop back down onto all four wheels. For the driver it's vital to keep the truck at precisely the right angle," Pedrero explained.
