HEICO SPORTIV Tops 400 hp Mark For The First Time

10.10.2016

With the new e.motion® PerformanceKit for the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar, HEICO SPORTIV has topped the magical 400 hp mark for the first time, offering the most powerful Volvo ever in its 21 year company history. The newly developed e.motion® PerformanceKit consists of the latest generation of HEICO’s e.motion® performance enhancement including Speedpack, an intercooler and sports air filter insert. A maximum of 294 kW (400 hp) and 550 Nm torque enable a incredible top speed of 275 km/h (electronically limited).

HEICO SPORTIV has been developing and distributing performance enhancements for Volvo automobiles since 1995 and lays claim to the status of foremost professional Volvo tuner. Following Volvo’s takeover of Polestar and an expansion of the performance program, HEICO SPORTIV now selectively offers products for the complete vehicles. It does so in systematic pursuit of its corporate vision: to push back the limits of technical feasibility and customization with high quality products and a personal service offering.

The latest example of this is the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar. The series sports model already delivers a whopping 270 kW (367 PS) and 470 Nm, making it the most powerful series Volvo offered to date. Improving on that was therefore a special challenge for HEICO SPORTIV’s engineers – a challenge they mastered impressively with an inhouse-developed PerformanceKit.

The numbers speak for themselves: 294 kW (400 hp) and 550 Nm torque propel both the limousine S60 as well as the V60 station wagon to an electronically limited 275 km/h top speed. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is completed 0.4 sec faster than the series model, and from 80 to 180 km/h in 6th gear, a massive 2.8 sec faster. It’s all made possible by the next generation HEICO SPORTIV e.motion® unit – a single control unit that boosts performance while simultaneously raising the series speed limitation from 250 to 275 km/h. An intercooler with a surface area three times that of the series cooler provides for cooler intake air. And a racing air filter that fits into the original air filter box guarantees a higher air flow.

The HEICO SPORTIV e.motion® PerformanceKit is installed by authorized contracted Volvo dealerships (HEICO SPORTIV Premium and Service Partners) and has no impact on the emission classifications or prescribed service and maintenance intervals. The included guarantee covers up to 24 months (regardless of mileage) from the initial registration and its scope and settlement are oriented towards the Volvo Manufacturer Guarantee. Straightforward assembly allows quick installation of e.motion®, which also supports online programming, diagnostics and updates. An expert appraisal for entry in the vehicle documents is naturally supplied at no additional cost.

The e.motion® PerformanceKit for the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar will be available from November 2016 at a price of EUR 4,990 including VAT.
