Dash Cam of the Week: Dump this!

No one was hurt in the making of this awesome video—because no one was actually sitting at the wheel. And that’s a good thing. The bad news is this could give a kid a new idea for a Christmas present.

So watch a four-year-old girl named Sophie put a full-sized remote-controlled Volvo FMX dump truck through its paces on a closed-off gravel pit course in Serbia. Volvo Trucks notes that the remote control system used by Sophie was specially made for this film.

Volvo also said it conducted this unique “live test” to show off the cage construction, cast-iron front corners and steel skid plate of its FMX model, along with its new automatic traction control feature that automatically engages the front axle when needed so the truck doesn’t get stuck.

And even the bystanders were a safely protected distance from the action, according to the closing credits.
