Volvo S80 by Heico Sportiv

The city of Darmstadt, Germany, has been dubbed as remarkable for several reasons. One of these is that it is the home of the Heico Sportiv offices. Heico Sportiv has been working with Volvo Tuning and a result of this is the shiny looking chrome-plated Volvo S80.

The model has been brought to car shows in Las Vegas and you cannot help but look at it because of the attention-grabbing shiny look. They have equipped the model with a six cylinder engine in volume of 3.2 liters due to not being satisfied with the original capability of 281HP. Along with the changes on the engine, it’s also powered by E85 fuel and a new stainless steel exhaust system resulting in an increase of horsepower which is now at 350HP.

The suspension is lowered by 40mm and the wheels are supplied by Heico via their Volution X wheels. All these features definitely made the Volvo S80 a real head-turner during the Las Vegas SEMA show.
