The Volvo Ocean Race may not make it to North American shores until next spring, but for those who want to get into the swing of things before the boats arrive, Volvo has come up with this. It's called the Volvo Ocean Race Edition and has been designed to recreate the atmosphere of the world's greatest yacht race aboard your very own car. Available in both the V70 and Cross Country guise, the editions come with a host of unique features.
Externally, the cars boast Ocean Blue paintwork (Paint Code 458) and special Volvo Ocean Race emblems on the front doors, while the Cross Country version adds a silver body moulding and aluminum skid plates front and rear. Inside, all cars come with a set of Ocean Race luxury floormats to complete the nautical theme.
Volvo has said that the Volvo Ocean Race Edition models will be available in Spring 2002, though we have been told that production begins September of 2001, which points to an earlier release this fall. For the moment, only the Cross Country has been confirmed for the North American marketplace.
Pictures of both models available on main page.
