The best Volvo bus video ever!

We have seen various Volvo bus, both B7R and B9R version videos but this has to be the best one ever. Made by Inner Eye Films, the video shows a presentation and feedback on the Volvo B9R or the Volvo multi-axle bus. The video is pretty long but worth a watch - increase the volume or wear ear-phones please!
The video also shows a few shots of the smaller B7R through the snowy roads of Manali!
