May 12, 2008

GÖTEBORG, SWEDEN – The best-selling Volvo V70 becomes the fifth Volvo model to be offered withthe sporty factory-fitted R-Design option pack. The R-Design pack spotlights anew dimension: impassioned, extroverted, and challenging, according to themanufacturer.

 

“Increasingnumbers of customers want cars that express individual taste and style. VolvoCars has therefore created the R-Design option pack to add a refined sportylook to the other attractive characteristics of our products,” said GerryKeaney, senior vice president, Marketing, Sales, and Customer Service at VolvoCars.

TheR-Design pack for the Volvo V70 includes a wide range of eye-catching features,including door mirror housings and grille detailing in silk metal finish,chrome exhaust tailpipe, and specially designed 18-inch aluminium wheels. Onthe inside, from the instrument panel’s aluminium inlays to the center consoleand door sides, there is a milled circular décor pattern that spreads likeripples in water.

Thesporty chassis has been optimized with the help of features such as stifferanti-roll bars and bushings and lower ground clearance for more direct roadcontact and more responsive and rewarding steering feedback.

“The bigchallenge with this project was to combine crisp driving pleasure with Volvo’srenowned secure properties in poor road conditions such as heavy rain or snow.I’m convinced we’ve found exactly the right balance,” said Ekkehard Schwartz, vicepresident, Chassis and Vehicle Dynamics.
