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.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
