Swedish Metal 2018 – design by Björn Gelotte, In Flames

Auction closed. Congratulations Jimmy at JH Entreprenad & Transport

Björn Gelotte plays guitar in the heavy metal band In Flames. He is, just like Volvo, a Gothenburg celebrity famous around the globe. Together with Volvo Trucks he has designed this special edition of a Volvo FH16 750. The truck, which is called Swedish Metal, is now looking for a new owner. We are selling the truck in an online auction, on www.tradera.com, and we commit 20 per cent of the final sales price to a children’s traffic safety project – Stop, Look, Wave. On top of that, whomever purchases the truck will also have access to a unique music experience – a personal ticket pass for the buyer to all In Flames concerts worldwide during 2020.

The auction closed on September 20, at 12 am.

I really like this vinyl, it feels like leather. On the doors we have cut out the In Flames logo. I am extremely pleased with the truck, it looks really dark and brutal.
