This is the Iron Knight. (The truck, not the driver.) It's more badass than you'll ever be.
It's built for one thing and one thing only -- shattering speed records.
In fact, it now holds two world records for standing-start runs -- 500 and 1,000 meters.
Its engine is hooked up to four turbochargers, and it puts out 2,400 horsepower and 4,425 pound-feet of torque.
Yet it uses the same dual-clutch transmission found on Volvo's standard trucks.
Every other part of the Iron Knight was developed specifically for breaking speed records.
Slipping behind the wheel for these record-breaking attempts was Boije Ovebrink, a man with 30 years of racing experience in both cars and trucks.
This isn't Volvo's first world-record truck, though.
In fact, it's built two others.
In 2007, it built the 1,600-horsepower Wild Viking.
It followed up with the Mean Green, a 2,100-horsepower hybrid.
What I wouldn't give to get behind the wheel of this thing....
