Volvo S80 Heico Sportiv
Volvo S80 Sedan from Heico Sportiv 

The S80 High Performance Concept debuted at SEMA 2007 with its aluminium-look body and a 350 hp bio-ethanol engine. 

The turbocharged T6 engine runs E85 fuel and boasts 350 horsepower @ 5500 rpm and a massive 550 Nm of torque between 1500 and 4000 rpm. Volvo’s electronically controlled AWD system ensures 0-62 mph takes around 5.8 seconds while the engine development isn’t even finished.

The Volvo S80 Concept from Heico Sportiv features new shocks and springs that lower the chassis 40 mm. The brake system ensures Volvo trademark safety with 6-pot calipers, sports brake pads and 355 mm discs. The specially developed 20-inch forged alloy wheels are dressed in 255/30R20 Continental rubber.

The bodywork with its seven coats of paint takes two weeks to finish. The coat that gives the aluminium effect doesn’t allow any touch-ups, so it has to be right from the beginning. All other parts, such as the tailpipe trim, window moldings, front grill and rub strips are coated with matt finish black chrome. The handcrafted body kit features redesigned skirts all round and a rear trunk spoiler. The front bumper got integrated spoiler flaps, three larger air ducts, LED daytime running lights and a sport grille. The exhaust system is made of stainless steel with tailpipes integrated into the rear bumper.

The interior is covered in Mystic Blue leather with matched stitching, Heico Sportiv logo’s can be found on the front sport seats and the two individual seats in the rear. Seat belts and floor mats are colored to match the Blue leather. There is a sports steering wheel trimmed in leather and a leather-trim gear lever with a silver carbon accent. The silver carbon fiber centre console has additional storage space controls for the rear entertainment system. All decorative trim elements are made of silver carbon fibre. The stainless steal door sills feature a illuminated Heico Sportiv logo.
