Volvo’s Ocean Race Editions Released in GenevaFebruary 25th, 2014
Volvo is recognizing the 40th year of the Volvo Ocean Race with the release of limited Volvo Ocean Race Edition vehicles. The editions include the Volvo V40, V40 Cross Country, V60 and XC60 to be launched at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The models are available in four colors: Ocean Blue II, Bright Silver, Black Sapphire and Crystal White and come with unique seven-spoke “Portunus” wheels and identifying “Volvo Ocean Race” badging.
Inside, the theme is carried over to the upholstery, which comes in either black or blonde leather with orange stitching and the Volvo Ocean Race logo in orange – which is also seen in the floor mats. What we find most interesting is that the cargo cover in the back has the Volvo Ocean Race logo and a map of the event course — maybe you can follow along as you drive. Surrounding the center console is a decorative inlay showing recognizing the round-the-world race also.
