Volvo has launched two special edition versions of the XC70 and XC90 models to celebrate the staging of the 2008/2009 Volvo Ocean Race.
The new models will honour a prestigious eight-month yacht race which will see competitors cover 37,025 nautical miles and visit a range of exotic ports around the globe.
The Volvo Ocean Race XC70 applies to both the 3.2 and 3.2 LE models as well as D5 and D5 LE, while the XC90 Volvo Ocean Race includes 3.2, D5 and V8 models.
Each model is available in a choice of two exclusive Volvo Ocean Race colours: Ocean Blue or Electric Silver.
Volvo Ocean Race XC90 models boast six-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels colour-matched to compliment the exterior finish, bright chrome outer air intake, side window trims and tailgate mouldings, aluminium roof rails and alloy-look front and rear skid plates.
Inside, the special edition XC90 features leather seats in Soft Beige or Off Black with special cross-stitching inspired by sail making, this is complimented by unique door panels, along with brushed aluminium inlays in the glove compartment, rear tunnel and centre console.
The XC70 Ocean Race features unique 17-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels colour-matched like the XC90 Ocean Race with Ocean Blue or Electric Silver external finish, bright chrome side window trims, silver painted aluminium roof rails and front and rear skid plates.
