Volvo - The Game - released

The Volvo Swedish automaker has launched officially 'Volvo-the game'. The star of the game is the all-new S60 Concept, but you can choose from 5 other Volvo units too. Like Volvo C30 the 'green' racecar that is competing currently in the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC), the ex Volvo S60 model that competed on the STCC also, the Volvo S40 having many successes in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), Volvo 850, estate auto that became a BTCC legend, and finally but not the least a true classic racer from the past, the 240 Turbo Group A by Volvo.

'Playing racing games helps me train my ability to concentrate and to maintain my level of concentration over many laps' states Robert Dahlgren.

The STCC game now inspired Pontus Berger to contact SimBin. 'Can you make a PC-based racing game that has broad public appeal, features only Volvo models and introduces our new concept car, the Volvo S60 Concept?'

'In terms of audio quality we’re also remarkably close to reality. One example is the S40. For that car we pulled one of the race cars out of hibernation last autumn and gave it a thorough full-speed workout, recording the engine sound straight from the racing track' affirms Magnus Ling - SimBin Executive Vice President.

'How cool is it going to be to race the Volvo 240 on the Gothenburg track! When I was growing up, all my friends were driving 240s. But not me. I was out competing. Now I finally get the chance' says Robert Dahlgren.
