350bhp high performance Volvo S80 concept (29/09/2007)

 

 

 

German tuning and motor sport experts HEICO SPORTIV has developed a spectacular high-performance version of the Volvo S80. With a high-tech aluminium-look exterior and a 350 hp bioethanol engine, the S80 High Performance Concept is destined to be a true attention-grabber at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

“We wanted to explore how far we could take a special high-performance version of the S80. HEICO SPORTIV’s impressive track record in motor sports and Volvo tuning made them the perfect partner for the job,” says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Brand, Business and Product Strategy at Volvo Cars. He adds: “Personally, I think the result is absolutely stunning. Both when it comes to the exterior and interior design as well as the impressive muscle under the bonnet.” The turbocharged T6 engine has been modified to run on E85 (85 percent bioethanol,15 percent petrol) – a biofuel that is becoming increasingly widely available throughout Europe.

The T6 engine in the HEICO S80 High Performance Concept boasts around 350 horsepower at 5500 rpm and a massive 550 Nm of torque between 1500 and 4000 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h will take around 5.8 seconds. “The engine development is not yet finalized, so we hope to reach an even higher horsepower figure when the car is ready for SEMA,” says HEICO SPORTIV’s president Holger Hedtke.
