Pirelli and Heico Sportiv have revealed a specially tuned version of the Volvo V40 to celebrate Pirelli's jubilee.
They used as foundation a V40 T3 model equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. Output has been lifted from the series 150 HP (110 kW) to 200 HP (147 kW), while torque has gone up from 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) to 300 Nm (221 lb-ft). As a result, 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 7.9 seconds, making it 0.9s faster than the stock model. Top speed has also increased from 130 mph (210 km/h) to 143 mph (230 km/h).
The Volvo V40 Pirelli by Heico Sportiv rides on 8x19 VOLUTION VII wheels shod in 235/35 R19 P Zeros. Other changes include a 30mm lowered suspension and a custom body kit with a bi-part front spoiler and a diffuser-look rear skirt. The black and red theme exterior is continued inside the cabin where there are velour floor mats with embossed tire-tread profiles. Heico Sportiv says this special package can be ordered with other engines offered by Volvo.
