The 2008-09 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race started in Alicante, Spain on 11 October 2008 and is scheduled to finish in St. Petersburg on 20 June 2009, following a 37,000 nautical mile lap of the planet. For the first time, the race is visiting Asia, with stopovers in Cochin, India, Singapore, and Qingdao, China.
For every race, there is a Volvo Ocean Race edition of cars. This year's edition is available for the Volvo XC90, Volvo XC70 and V70. These cars come in either Ocean Blue or Electric Silver, with interiors full of details that are inspired by the race and the nautical world. Sales of the Volvo Ocean Race edition cars are expected to reach 8,500 units.
