Heico Sportiv Volvo C70


Updated on

Earlier this week Heico Sportiv, the well know Volvo car tuning company released their latest project based on the all new Volvo C70. The stunning hard top convertible Volvo received several styling and performance upgrades to let it stand out of the crowd. Adding a touch of sportiness is a new front spoiler and rear diffuser, complemented by 20-inch forged wheels that definitely get the job done. Under the hood, the Volvo C70 diesel models received an ECU tuning upgrade from the guy at Heico Sportiv, however performance numbers have not been released yet.

We do know that a dual or quad pipe stainless steel exhaust system can be fitted underneath for an extra power boost. Though the numbers may be small, the engine tuning along with the increased air flow through the exhaust should yield some decent performance gains. As for the road handling, the new Volvo C70 was hooked up with a sport suspension kit to lower the car 30 mm, and Heico added a quad-piston braking system. For added traction stability, the C70 received a differential lock for the T5 manual gearbox.
