Volvo have certainly come a long way since their cardigan days to now be producing cars which have become a favourite for tuners worldwide.
The latest Volvo to emerge from the after market stable is the C3 by MR Sweden Motorsport.
Obvious changes include the aggressive front and rear bumpers, new side skirts and a roof spoiler.
Another welcome addition are the 18-inch ASA five-spoke alloy wheels wrapped with 235mm rubber.
An adjustable sports suspension system can lower the car by an impressive 60mm on the fly.
Modifications to the five-cylinder diesel are few, comprising of a new sports air filter and tuned ECU, which increases power from 138kW to 167kW.
However, the torque figure has risen to an impressive 432Nm which takes the car to 100km/h in 7.5 seconds from a standing start and on to 225km/h.
