Volvo Trucks’ online video series ‘Welcome to my cab’ invites viewers into the cabs of truck drivers from around the world and in the latest episode we visit Italian truck driver Paolo Villa and the ‘Untouchable’.
“I’m passionate about trucks so we decided to create this work of art, as we loved ‘The Untouchables’ and wanted to depict it on the truck,” says Paolo. The result is an immaculately decorated tribute to Brian de Palma’s classic gangster flick, complete with famous scenes and the film’s star-studded cast including Robert De Niro, Sean Connery, Kevin Costner and Andy Garcia.
However apart from being a homage to Paolo’s favourite film, the ‘Untouchable’ also includes some personal touches. A tribute to his father, who passed away while the truck was being decorated and a memento of the day he was engaged to his wife, who has also been worked into the elaborate artwork. It has been ten years since Paolo decided to decorate his Volvo FH12 and name it ‘L’Intoccabile’ and now his creation stars in a film of its own, albeit on YouTube.
Soon, it will also be available on Volvo Trucks’ online magazine and on the company’s next tablet magazine.
