The top class select tuner for the Volvo brand, Heico Sportiv, has been working lately on developing the tuned Volvo V40 T5 HPC. After a teaser picture that has just been revealed a short while ago, the modified model is finally revealed. With a partnership started in 1972 the independent tuner company put the Swedish brand out-of-the-ordinary and offered individualism, personality, uniqueness and character for all Volvo tuned versions.
The Volvo V40 T5 HPC is powered by the same five-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged engine we find on the Volvo V40 Cross Country model. Heico Sportiv brought along some goodies to increase the figures related to the engine. There are worth mentioning a new exhaust system, turbocharger, charge air system and a last generation intercooler. And all these updated elements increase the engine’s output from 254 HP (187 kW) to 320 HP (235 kW) and the torque from 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) to 510 Nm (376 lb-ft). As a cherry on top of a cake, the V40 HPC can develop a maximum of 350 HP (257 kW) when the water- ethanol injection system is activated. With this system on the run, the vehicle can go from stand to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.6 seconds and it can reach a maximum speed of 164 mph (265 km/h).
Heico Sportiv also worked on the aerodynamics of the Volvo V40 T5 HPC, lowering its body with 30 mm with the help of a new sports suspension. The car sits on a set of 19-inch alloy wheels wearing 235/35 R19 tires that are stopped by a six-piston sport brake system with 370mm perforated discs. The car’s body is made of lightweight, polyurethane plastic and painted in a matte toxic green shade with some lateral black decorative stripes. Inside the cabin there are Recaro body-hugging sport seats, a sport steering wheel with fixed paddle shifters, Alcantara-wrapped handbrake and gearshift, aluminum pedals and green stitching.
The future plans of Heico Sportiv don’ t include a production model yet. However, in open battle with the German competition represented by the Audi S3 Sportback and Mercedes A45 AMG, the Volvo V40 T5 HPC promises to be a rough opponent. The Volvo V40 T5 HPC will be produced to satisfy even the most demanding manufacturer standards and the client’s wishes.
