Volvo Launches Limited Edition S60 T6 Design 330HP by Heico Sportiv

Hot on the heels from last week's presentation of Heico Sportiv's tuning program for the new S60, Volvo's European division today announced the launch of a limited edition version of the T6 sedan model, all spruced up by the tuning specialists at Heico Sportiv. Only 100 units of the Black Sapphire metallic special edition will be available in Europe, each priced at €63,968, equivalent to US$82,000. We assume pricing is for the German market, since Volvo did not get into any specific details.

If you've read about Heico Sportiv's S60 package in our previous post, then there's nothing really new to add other than that the Volvo limited edition gets a special plaque inside which identifies the specific production number of the car.

The factory-approved S60 T6 Design by Heico Sportiv receives an upgrade to the six-cylinder turbo petrol engine, offering a 26HP boost, from 304HP to 330-horsepower, while torque has also been improved to 460 Nm over 2100-4500rpm.

The engine is mated to Volvo's Geartronic transmission and according to the Swedes, the car accelerates from 0-100km/h (62 mph) in 5.8 seconds and reaches an electronically controlled top speed of 250km/h (155 mph).

The average consumption is 10.3 lt per 100km (22.8mpg US), which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 239 g/km (provisional figures).

To further improve handling on the T6 sedan that comes with standard all-wheel drive, the tuner fitted new sports springs which lower the car's ride height by 30mm.

Exterior goodies include 19-inch Diamond cut alloys shod in Pirelli rubber and a two-part front spoiler and rear diffuser bumper made of light plastic and carbon fibre. Inside, the Heico Sportiv version gains aluminum trimmed gear-knob and sport pedals.
