Volvo puts first new FH up for sale on eBay

  • 19 September 2012
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Volvo Trucks is to sell the first new FH to the highest bidder on eBay, with all proceeds going to charity.

The auction for the one-off collectors item, which will have an exclusive ‘number one’ emblem in the window, will last for 10 days starting today (19 September), and is open to bidders all over Europe, including Russia, Turkey and Isreal.

The eBay sale follows the now infamous ballerina stunt, which has had some 5.9 million hits as a viral video on You Tube.

“Our aim with this auction is to raise as much money as possible for the ‘Star for Life’ programme,” said Claes Nilsson, president, EMEA sales and global brand, at Volvo Trucks .

The highest bidder will be invited to present the money to Star for Life, a South African-based charity that aims to reduce the number of HIV-positive high school students.

At the time of writing the highest bid was €95,050. If you want to bring the first new Volvo FH to the UK visit the auction here.
