Though station wagons are not exactly the best tuning material out there in the automotive world, the specialists at Heico Sportiv took a Volvo V70 and tweaked it, releasing a special edition that will go on sale this summer. Limited to just 100 units, the Volvo V70 T6 AWD R-Design will be available in Germany only.

The standard turbocharged 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engine features an optimized ECU dubbed e.motion (efficiency in motion), delivering 325 hp and 460 Nm of torque.

This allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 Km/h. According to preliminary figures released by the tuning house, average fuel efficiency is rated at 10.6l/100km.

The Volvo V70 T6 AWD R-Design also comes with a 30 mm lowered suspension, a Heico Sportiv sport exhaust system and special trunk emblem, 19 inch alloys wrapped in Pirelli tires, but 18 inch R-Design wheels are available as well.

Visually, the car has been restyled and features body colored door sills and bumpers, roof, spoiler, exterior mirrors, as well as chrome exhaust pipes.

Interior enhancements include an aluminum door pin set and aluminum/leather gear shift knob, as well as an edition plaque for the dashboard. Sport leather upholstery in anthracite with inlaid quartz-beige contours, R-Design aluminum inlays, leather sport steering wheel with silk matt intarsia, sport pedals and blue-background instruments are also included in this special edition.

Praised by Heico as the most powerful Volvo ever sold in Germany, the Volvo V70 T6 AWD R-Design will have a price tag of EUR70,193. The complete package offers a 20 percent price saving over the individual options.
