eBay Auction Winner Drives Home the First Volvo FH

Ducournau receives the keyes
The first owner of the newly launched Volvo FH – Jean Pierre Ducournau – has picked up his truck "The Number One". Ducournau had placed the winning bid of 150,000 Euros in a eBay charity auction for the first series manufactured new Volvo FH back in September 2012. He received the keys for the long-awaited truck in Roissy-en-France, just outside Paris. In March Jean-Pierre Ducournau will travel to South Africa to hand over the money from the auction to Star for Life. The organisation runs an educational programme whose aim is to stop the spread of HIV among young people. Available material includes an edited package with and without narration as well as still images.
