Heico Sportiv specializes in tuning Volvo cars and has done so since 1997, so it isn;t surprising that they have unveiled a new customization program for the new Volvo C30 . The new kit is based on accentuating the car’s design and improving driving dynamics and performance although, in Yoda terms, exhaustive in components, it is not.
The new components are simple in number. They are made in reinforced polyurethane plastic and consist of a new rear skirt with exhaust system. The exhaust is made up of 120x74 mm diameter stainless steel end pipes that are matte-polished.
The tuner is also offering an individually calibrated combination of rear valence and exhaust system – including an additional muffler and unique sound guarantee from five cylinders for the high end engines T5/D5.
Compared to previous tuned up models of the Volvo C30 by Heico Sportiv, this one is a tad on the lazy side. Not much is done to the original automobile leaving an image of an unfinished model.
Press release after the jump.
The new series production Volvo C30 is already an eye catcher with its striking design. HEICO SPORTIV is now taking this model a step further by accentuating its design and improving driving dynamics and performance.
The most striking change is the new rear skirt with exhaust system. The PUR-R-RIM (reinforced polyurethane plastic) rear skirt dictates the form of a diffusor and snuggly encloses the exhaust system’s centrally arranged oval end pipes. Similarly to the serial parts, the rear skirt is attached to the original anchorage points, thereby guaranteeing low assembly costs and perfect, Volvo-quality fitting.
The main allure, however, is that the package can be combined both with standard specification vehicles (replacement of central part) as well as with vehicles with the Volvo Bodykit “R Design” (replacement of central part + assembly of additional left- and right-hand corner parts which pick up on the iconic R Design).
The centrally repositioned, 120x74 mm diameter stainless steel end pipes are matt-polished. “Just as it should be possible to distinguish a Volvo from afar, a HEICO SPORTIV Volvo C30 should also be instantaneously recognizable,” says general manager, Holder Hedtke, about the corporate de-sign philosophy. “With this, our company is yet again offering a USP that clearly sets us apart from the competition.”
Suitable for each engine variant, HEICO SPORTIV offers an individually calibrated combination of rear valence and exhaust system – including an additional muffler and unique sound guarantee from five cylinders for the high end engines T5/D5.
