Volvo Trucks release teaser for the next stunt: ‘The Epic Split’ ft. Van Damme

The Volvo Trucks stunt-serial of this autumn now seems to be reaching its peak this week. A new teaser video, premiering on YouTube today, reveals that the next stunt from the thrill-seekers at Volvo Trucks, will feature none other than Jean Claude Van Damme. On the 14th of November, Van Damme will allegedly be performing one of his trademark splits in a fashion never seen before.

Slackliners, CEOs, hamsters, and bulls are just some of the unusual props Volvo Trucks has used to demonstrate its trucks’ capabilities. Now, the star of Volvo Trucks’ latest film ‘The Epic Split’ seems to be none other than Hollywood action-man Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Allegedly Van Damme will be performing one of his trademark splits, balancing between two reversing trucks. This incredible world-first stunt is set to premiere on November 14. “It’s quite unusual, and the first time we’ll ever see anything like it – in a movie or a commercial,” said Van Damme on set at a deserted airfield in Spain, before shooting the scene. Van Damme continues: “When I saw the storyboard, I thought it looked amazing. It’s very majestic and very powerful.”

In the teaser film Jan-Inge Svensson, the engineer behind the development of Volvo Dynamic Steering, explains the stunt to the action star. A stunt neither Van Damme nor anyone else in the world has ever done before.

The plot of this film brings back echoes of the breath-taking ‘Ballerina Stunt’ from last year, in which slackliner Faith Dickey crossed a rope between two speeding trucks. The question is – can Volvo Trucks and their accomplices complete such a daring stunt once again?

The film, ‘The Epic Split’ is released on November 14. It follows on from previous hits including ‘The Ballerina Stunt’, ‘The Hook’, ‘The Hamster’ and ‘The Chase’. This is a split you do not want to miss.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
