“It’s quite unusual, and the first time we’ll ever see anything like it – in a movie or a commercial,” said Van Damme on set at a deserted airfield in Spain, before shooting the scene. “When I saw the storyboard, I thought it looked amazing. It’s very majestic and very powerful.”

The purpose of the film is to demonstrate the stability and precision of Volvo Dynamic Steering, and it follows on from previous viral hits including ‘The Ballerina Stunt’, ‘The Hook’, ‘The Hamster’ and ‘The Chase’.
