Limited Edition Volvo V70 T6 AWD R-Design with 325HP by Heico Sportiv

|

Heico Sportiv has been putting together more stylish and powerful Volvos for over a decade. Now, the tuning firm has once again joined forces with Volvo to create a special edition version of the V60 T6 estate for the German market. It goes on sale this summer with a hefty €70,193 [about US$87,000] price tag in a limited run of just 100 copies, all in a metallic sapphire black shade.

This V70 T6 AWD R-Design is motivated by the firm's 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 upgraded with a recalibrated ECU and a sport exhaust system that cranks out 325HP and a maximum torque of 460 Nm / 339 lb-ft, a jump of 21HP and 20Nm over stock. The engine is matched to a six-gear automatic gearbox with geartronic function.

Volvo says the estate accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 5.9 seconds [standard model: 6.9 seconds], and reached an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155mph). Average fuel consumption is 10.6 lt / 100 km, equal to 22.2 mpg US.

Heico Sportiv also treated the V70 T6 AWD with a sport suspension that lowers the estate's ride height by 30mm or 1.2 inches, and big 19-inch alloy wheels complete with 245/35 R19 Pirelli tires. The car also comes with an extra set of original Volvo R-Design 18-inch wheels with Pirelli winter tires.

Aside from the standard R-Design package that includes color-coded door sills and bumpers, roof spoiler, mirror casings in a matt chrome finish and chrome applications for the fog-lamp surrounds, the special edition V70 also gets chrome exhaust tips and a special trunk emblem.

The R-Design package's interior fittings include, among others, sport leather upholstery in anthracite with inlaid quartz-beige contours, R-Design aluminum inlays, multifunctional leather sport steering wheel, sport pedals and blue-background instruments. In addition, Heico Sportiv added aluminum door pins and a special edition plaque for the dashboard.

volvo just needs to bring the R models back there is a demand for them by just looking at this car but that price, maybe if it had 400hp+ and 0-60 at 4.9 or 5 seconds

Yea yea sure, Im really loking 4ward for sporty Volvos. WTF are they messing around, it is just an necessity to build new sports models to attract new customers. In my opinion, they already have Yamahas V8 (300HP stock) and they need to add new superchargers/turbochargers to get at least 100 more, new design skirts, bumpers and they're ready to go. And yea, I hope for a manual gearbox.

Ermm guys.. While I'm all for a hotter Volvo V70, Heico are asking for over €15,000/$19,000 above the German price for a V70 T6 AWD R-Design. If you minus all the standard Volvo fitted kit they mention, Heico parts are:

ECU recalibration
Sport Exhaust
Lowered Sports Suspension
19" Wheels
Chrome Exhaust Tips
Emblem x2
Door Pins
Plaque
Gear Knob

Which = €5000/$6,000 worth of Heico parts plus the cost of ECU recalibration and a plaque.

Come on guys see past the hype, and realise that you can have the same car for a lot less if you just look at the Heico parts catalogue!
