They also tune Volvo’s in Germany and none better than those by the Volvo specialists at Heico Sportiv who has unleashed their 243 kW (330 bhp) V70 T6 R-Design family wagon with a stump pulling 460 Nm of torque.
That’s enough to propel this V70 T6 from 0-100km/h in just 5.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 250km/h (limited).
Average fuel consumption of 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres is achieved through the implementation of Heico Sportiv e.Motion technology, which includes a supplementary engine control unit with enhanced engine management.
Heico Sportiv has over 20 years experience in tuning and racing a host of Volvo models and from 2008 became an official partner with Volvo car Germany GmbH.
While we genuinely like the styling of the standard V70 T6 AWD, Heico have added a few muscular design cues of their own, which see the car lowered by an additional 30mm thanks to Hieco Sportiv’s sport suspension, shock absorbers and springs for extra sharp handling.
The car also gets a set of 19-inch graphite look five-spoke alloys shod with Pirelli 245/35 rubber all round although, you also receive the original Volvo R-Design 18-inch wheels with Pirelli winter tyres as part of the Heico Sportiv package.
Apart from the very tasty R-Design interior features, such as doorsills and bumpers in matching car colour, roof spoiler, door mirror casing in matt chrome optic, Heico have added a few interior features including a machined aluminium/leather shifter and an edition plaque for the dashboard to name but a few of these.
