Set Sail in Volvo's Ocean Race Special Edition Models

Due to our proximity to the sea at Carlsbad Volvo we were excited to hear that Volvo would be releasing a fifth edition of their Ocean Race models to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Volvo Ocean Race.

This yacht race takes teams 38,739 nautical miles across the world. The crews deal with grueling conditions and hard winds. We'll stick to our relaxing afternoon sitting on the sand and checking out this ocean-inspired lineup.

Fingers crossed that these models make it to the states, but with Volvo starting production on 16,000 units in the springtime, there is a good chance we'll see this edition in Carlsbad, California.

The Ocean Race Special Edition will be available in in the Volvo V60, V70, XC60, and the V40 and V40 Cross Country for those overseas. Buyers can choose from four exciting color choices (Ocean Blue II, Bright Silver Black Sapphire, and Crystal White) to match their nautical imagination.

The interior will come in either black or blond leather and for a pop of color there will be orange contrast stitching. The cargo cover will have a map of the Volvo Ocean Race printed on it and race logos will show up on floor mats, the car badge, and on the door panel.

Since this is about appearance more than performance you can expect the same engine and power specs, however the V70 and XC70 will have a lowered chassis for more dynamic handling.

In the meantime come test drive a new Volvo model. We have a great selection of sedans, crossovers, and even convertibles.
