Volvo's special editions will be available to order from April and feature 'sail-inspired' touches
8 March 2011

Volvo has revealed nautical-themed special editions of its V60, XC60, V70 and XC70 models.

Built to commemorate Volvo’s nine-leg Ocean Race event, which starts in Alicante on October 29, Ocean Race Edition models are offered with the choice of two ‘luxurious’ exterior colours - Ocean Blue II or Electric Silver – a ‘sail-inspired’ leather interior, and Ocean Race logos on the wheels, boot cover and mats, as well as on the start-up display.

A full range of engines for each respective model is available for the Ocean Race Editions. Order books for the V60, XC60 and XC70 versions open in April, ahead of customer deliveries in July.

Pricing is yet to be confirmed by the company, but it has announced that it expects to sell 7500 Ocean Race Edition models globally.
