Watch a Volvo FH truck towing a paraglider in a world’s first precision stunt. How did they do it? Please comment, like and share.

This Live Test was set up to demonstrate the performance of Volvo Trucks’ unique powertrain with the I-Shift Dual Clutch gearbox. To keep the paraglider in flying, the truck had to keep up its speed even when driving on demanding roads up a mountain pass.
