Volvo launches special edition

Volvo has launched a special edition trim to mark the start of its ‘round-the-world’ Volvo Ocean Race in November.

The new Ocean Race editions will be included on the XC90, XC70 and V70 models.

Every model offers a choice of Volvo's powerful, five-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, including the new D5 turbo-diesel with 185bhp.

Exterior additions include an Ocean Blue pearlescent paint, as well as 'Electric Silver' coloured side door mouldings, brushed aluminium roof rails, Volvo Ocean Race badges, key ring and tread plates on the door sills. The XC90 version has body coloured door handles and mirrors, while the XC70 gains larger 17inch alloy wheels.

Ocean Blue aluminium inlays, plus floor mats with co-ordinating blue piping are added to the interior.

The Volvo Ocean Race editions start at £34,735 for the XC90, £30,593 for the XC70 and £27,648 for the V70, which are £1,000, £1,050 and £700 respectively above the equivalent standard models.

Volvo also offers additional styling extras available to customise the Volvo Ocean Race Edition cars, including silver cross bars for the roof rails, sunglasses holder and mudflaps, plus aluminium side scuff plate for the XC70 and aluminium running boards for the XC90.

The special editions will be available to customers in the UK from November until summer 2006.
