Volvo tuning professionals at Heico Sportiv have announced a new program for the 2013 Volvo V40. They have prepared a wide variety of styling and performance modifications for the Swedish hatchback sports car. Even though Heico Sportiv is a German based firm, they are the official tuning partner of Volvo. This package is only going to be available for the D2, D3 and D4 diesel powerplants, so future customers interested will need to stick to those engine variants.
The guys at Volvo decided to partner up with Heico and Polestar to create this Volvo S60 called the Performance Project. Exterior modifications include the new exhaust system and 19-inch Heico rims wrapped in Pirelli tires found on the T6 R-Design AWD car. Performance tuning was the main focus however, and the revised ECU plays a big part in boosting the turbocharged 3.0-liter powerplant. After the final tune, the Volvo S60 now produces 325 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. Now this might sound impressive for and older Volvo enthusiast, but the car manufacturer has announced a 2012 Volvo S60 R-Design with an inline-six engine producing the exact same performance numbers. Stay tuned for more Volvo tuning news.
