New FASTEST Semi Tractor

Community, News August 26, 2016

Volvo Iron Knight

There is a new “fastest semi tractor on the planet,” after Volvo broke the previous record, which had held since 2012. The old speed was 21.596 seconds for 1 kilometer of road.

Volvo’s “Iron Knight,” which pushes speeds of 276 km/h (171.5 mph), did the kilometer in 21.290 seconds.

FIA is expected to make the new record official soon.

The truck is a modification of the trucks Volvo uses in commercial transport — the FH model long-haul trailers. It has a similar powertrain and transmission, but they are altered to handle the larger forces.

The engine is a 13-liter, 2,400 horsepower diesel, and has a 6,000 Newton meters torque.

The old record was also held by Volvo. It was their “Mean Green” truck.
