You might think a truck would be no challenge to a Ferrari sports car but Swedish racing legend, Boije Ovebrink, isn’t afraid to challenge powerful vehicles with his hybrid truck.
Nicknamed ‘Mean Green’ it took part in an exciting race against a Ferrari F360 at the Trucking Festival in Mantorp, Sweden on 27th August.
Mean Green is a converted Volvo VN truck, featuring the latest hybrid technology from Volvo Trucks. It was challenging the F360 driven by Henrik Appelholm.
The Ferrari, as you might expect, took the lead from the start, but Mean Green quickly caught up and eventually won by a hair's breadth.
"It was very close and I'm happy because I now know my Volvo hybrid is as fast as a Ferrari!" said a very happy Ovebrink.
