Volvo’s most powerful road car ever is a wagon

Volvo and tuning company Heico Sportiv have developed a high performance version of its V70 station wagon exclusively for the German market.

The turbocharged six cylinder V70 T6 AWD will have 239 kWs at its disposal, making it Volvo’s most powerful road car ever.

Limited to just 100 vehicles, it will cost about $NZ 122,000 and only be available in metallic sapphire black.

Besides its engine performance and sporty handling characteristics, the model captivates with many exclusive interior and exterior design novelties.

The new Volvo V70 T6 AWD R-Design by Heico Sportiv is based on the standard model with the adapted 224 kWs turbo straight six cylinder engine from Volvo. The vehicle’s tuning to 239 kWs and a maximum torque of 460 Nm, available from 2,100rpm to 4,200 rpm, was implemented using an enhanced engine management system.

Thanks to this technical upgrade, customers benefit from perceptible performance improvement and apparently limit-less power reserves. The Volvo V70 T6 AWD R-Design by Heico Sportiv tears from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 250 km/h (electronically capped). Average fuel consumption is 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres (preliminary values). For perfect traction on any terrain, the high-performance station wagon is fitted with permanent all-wheel drive and a six-gear automatic Geartronic gearbox.

The Heico sport suspension, shock absorbers and springs and 30mm lowering provide for more dynamic handling. Nineteen inch alloy wheels with 245/35 R19 Pirelli tires keeps everything on the road.

The car also comes with an original Volvo R-Design 18″ wheel set with Pirelli winter tyres and other exclusive elements such as a Heico Sportiv sport exhaust system and special trunk emblem.

The special edition incorporates the R-Design features such as doorsills and bumpers and roof spoiler in matching car colour, exterior mirror casing in matt chrome optic, chrome applications for the fog-lamp surround, as well as automatic level control.

The exclusive interior fittings include, sport leather upholstery in anthracite with inlaid quartz-beige contours, R-Design aluminium inlays, the multifunctional leather sport steering wheel, sport pedals and blue-background instruments.
