Report: Heico Sportiv release first images of tuned Volvo V40

German tuner Heico Sportiv has just unveiled their latest concoction for the European market, the Heico Sportiv Volvo V40.

Building up to this debut, Heico Sportiv had been teasing the industry with sketches and pictures for quite some time. But now, the first images have just been released.

Specifically, Heico Sportiv took the Volvo V40 equipped with the brand’s traditional turbocharged five-pot. They then reflashed its electronic brain and the result was a first generation Volvo V70 R-like 266hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, up from 237hp and 236 lb-ft respectively.

Further separating the Heico Sportiv Volvo V40 from the neighbor’s plain-Jane V40 are special seven-spoke alloys, a full body kit, and quad exhaust.

Pricing and other details shall be released as time rolls by.
