You may be thinking why are Addicted writing about trucks? Well these aren’t just any trunks and this isn’t just any film.
In this latest film from Volvo Trucks in a wildly successful series (including the John Claude Van Damme video) they have now released “The Casino”
A parking valet Ambrogio Adani is expected to park a truck outside a casino on the Italian Riviera. He looks surprised – but in actual fact the truck has a lot of similarities to the sports cars he usually parks. All thanks to the world-first transmission I-Shift Dual Clutch, “When I realized that I was expected to park a truck, my heart just stopped. I thought: How can I park it there?” says Ambrogio Adani.
The main point that Volvo is looking to drive home (sorry I had to) in this commercial is that the I-Shift Dual Clutch transmission in their trucks has a lot in common with a sports car.
I-Shift Dual Clutch has double transmissions, a technology found in many sports cars. Volvo Trucks is now the only manufacturer in the world that can offer this type of transmission for series-produced heavy vehicles.
