Volvo C70 Facelift Tuned by Heico Sportiv

HEICO SPORTIV and Volvo Automobile will present the new edition of the Volvo C70 at the Geneva Motor Show. Its elegance targets highly discerning people placing maximum demands on design and individuality. The tuner is offering some very impressive elements. The front spoiler forged in flexible, lightweight polyurethane plastic dissolves into the profile like an OEM element, providing for the distinctively sporty, but unobtrusive look. The chassis offers sport springs or the firmer sport suspension. Either option lowers the chassis by 30 mm, the center of gravity providing for optimized handling. The tuner provides 9x20 inch forged wheel set. It has a 15-20% weight advantage over the cast wheel and is the exclusive, crowning glory of the HEICO SPORTIV VOLUTION sport wheel program for 18-inches upwards. On the inside it features the finest leather that was set and worked with a sure taste for style on the dashboard, door trims and cover profile of the metal convertible roof. One exclusive highlight is a filigree wooden gear shift lever the pioneering result of a new joint venture with THONET, through its weightlessness the rolling, classy walnut sculpture emphasizes the use of form of the freely floating central console. This limited edition wooden gearshift is hand-made and it contains several stages. All the output is being sent to the wheels through T5 manual transmission only. The tuner also provided dual or quad pipe stainless steel exhaust system, sport springs or sport suspension with lowering by around 30 mm, quad-piston sports brake system to handle the extra power, and interior aluminum applications such as pedal set, foot rest and hand brake handle. The ones interested in more details will by sent to the Volvo S60 Lounge that can be found in the official Volvo stand Hall 6.
