The Volvo tuner HEICO SPORTIV has unveiled the new tuning program for the latest 2010 Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe Facelift. The reprogramming of the original engine control unit generates a highest power of 92 kW/125 bhp (for the 80 kW/109 bhp model) and maximum torque of 280 Nm (240 Nm). Thus, the Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe does 0 to 100 kmph in just 9.2 seconds, thrashing its series-produced counterpart by 2.1 seconds! A maximum speed of 200 kmph is also possible, 10 kmph faster than the series version.
The HEICO SPORTIV Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe features a remodel design elements at the front and rear. The HEICO SPORTIV front spoiler – which replaces the original lower base section of the bumper – consists of fiber-strengthened polyurethane and is fixed using the existing anchorage points. That similarity applies to the rear valence which mimics the front spoiler’s laterally arranged air vents and it also has a centrally placed diffuser element. The rear valence serves to hold the HEICO SPORTIV four pipe stainless steel exhaust system.
