Volvo unveils sporty V40 R-Design
The Volvo V40 R-Design is here. The R-Design is a 2013 model design of the company’s Volvo V40, which was also awarded the Euro NCAP safest car of the year.
The car sports the regular 254PS petrol and 115PS diesel engines; Volvo’s decided to keep the engines in the R-Design from the V40.
R-Design has a lowered chassis that was developed with Swedish racing driver Robert Dahlgren in the Volvo Polestar Black R team.
The sporty outlook is further attributed by an ironstone rear diffuser, silk-metal finished details and twin exhaust tailpipes.
Volvo expects the new V40 R-Design to account for 10 percent of the V40’s sales.
