See a Volvo Truck Driven Via Remote Control…by a 4-Year-Old Girl

#hashtags: #Volvo Trucks #FMX

Volvo Trucks has put out some seriously entertaining ads over the past few years, having let a hamster drive a truck up a mountain and enlisted Jean Claude Van Damme to do the splits between two trucks driving in reverse. Just when you thought the truck maker was done with its crazy stunts, another ad comes along and tops the previous ones. To demonstrate the durability and mobility of its vehicles, Volvo Trucks took the full-size FMX truck and modified it so that it can be driven via a special remote control, and then let a little 4-year-old girl named Sophie pilot it. At the beginning of the video, you see Sophie climb up to the top of a tower in a closed-off gravel pit and once she reaches the top, she’s handed the remote control for the massive truck. As the video unfolds, the truck goes through everything from getting hit by a humongous crate and grinding drivetrain components on concrete slabs to smashing through a building and rolling over a ledge — all in the name of proving how sturdy the FMX is. Despite going through all that punishment, the FMX continues to move as if nothing happened and literally withstood every bit of abuse thanks to its high-strength steel and cast-iron construction and its Automatic Traction Control feature. Check out the video below and tell us what you think about it in the comments. Would you want to be handed the controls to your own life-sized Tonka truck? Source: Volvo Trucks via YouTube [video4]
