Jean-Claude Van Damme and Volvo Trucks Perform World-First Stunt

Jean-Claude Van Damme stands between two Volvo FMs as they drive in reverse, before attempting to do his trademark split
As one of Hollywood's most famous action stars, Jean-Claude Van Damme has had to perform countless daring stunts, but in Volvo Trucks' latest film 'The Epic Split', he carries out one of his most spectacular yet.

Standing between two moving Volvo FM trucks with a foot on each side mirror, Jean-Claude Van Damme performs one of his world-famous splits as the two trucks drive in reverse. He calmly holds his position for the entire length of the drive.

The film aims to demonstrate the unique stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering.

Available material includes sounds bites from Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jan-Inge Svensson, engineer at Volvo Trucks as well as interviews with the director and stunt coordinator, running footage of the Volvo FM on set and images.
