2012 Heico Sportiv V40 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Premiere at the AMI, Leipzig: Volvo V40 racecar from HEICO SPORTIV.

For the first time at the unveiling of a new Volvo model in Germany, HEICO SPORTIV will simultaneously be presenting the corresponding sport edition: the premiere of the bio-diesel-powered Volvo V40 racecar at the Auto Mobil International (AMI) in Leipzig. The first-ever racing version of the brand new Volvo V40 will be on display from 1 to 10 June 2012 at the Volvo stand E31 in Hall 3.

Visitors at the AMI will be able to have a close look at the new Volvo V40 at Volvo's 800 m2 exhibition stand. The youngest Volvo – which celebrated its world premiere just recently at the start of March 2012 at the in Salon de l'Automobile in Geneva – will be available from Volvo partners from the summer. The compact hatchback model not only convinces wîth its outstanding safety features (e.g. the first series-production pedestrian airbag) but also wîth its dynamic design and sporty driving characteristics.

HEICO SPORTIV's philosophy centers on further accentuating Volvos' profiles and boosting their performance. As an official Volvo Car Germany partner for road vehicle individualization, HEICO SPORTIV works intensively on developing a comprehensive accessories program whose availability at retailers worldwide coincides wîth the market launch of the Volvo V40. It covers e.motion® ECÚ upgrades for all mainstream engine models, sonorous exhaust systems, sporty suspension and braking systems, exclusive VOLÚTION® wheels, as well as high quality interior applications and made-to-measure body kits.

A first glimpse of HEICO SPORTIV's exterior design for the new Volvo V40 can be had wîth the racing version at the Volvo stand at the AMI.

The lightweight, carbon fiber body kit is oriented optically towards the future road version and was only optimized for the competition wîth wider wheel housing, a lowered front spoiler and a rear wing for race track application. The rear diffusor already corresponds to the final road version.

Vital Stats
Engine : 5-cylinder
Power: 300 hp
Torque: 442 ft-lbs

Únder the slogan 'Green Racing', HEICO SPORTIV has for many years successfully demonstrated that motorsports and ecology are not necessarily paradoxical. The Volvo V40 racer will therefore also be powered wîth alternative fuels. The latest Volvo model is powered by a five-cylinder, turbo diesel D5 engine which, in the racing version, generates 300 hp (221 kW) and a maximum torque of 600 Nm. From 2013, the Volvo V40 by HEICO SPORTIV will have bio-diesel in its tank when it approaches the starting line at demanding long distance races and the infamous 24 Hour Race at the Nürburgring.
