Heico Sportiv Volvo V40 T5 HPC with 350 hp revealed

Volvo tuner Heico Sportiv has unveiled a high performance V40 T5 HPC (High Performance Concept) that is based on the four-wheel-drive, Cross County variant of the Volvo V40 – the Volvo V40CC T5.

The stock 2.5-litre 5-cylinder turbo engine is redesigned to pack more power and torque. The turbocharger, exhaust system, intercooler and charge-air system have been fundamentally revamped.

There is also HEICO SPORTIV performance enhancement system, e.motion, and the new speedpack for increasing the top speed before the series-produced speed throttle kicks in.

As a result power is up from 254 hp to 320 hp and when the water-ethanol injection system is activated with the button in the central console, the engine delivers 350 hp. Torque has been increased from 360 Nm to 510 Nm.

Thanks to all this extra power, the V40 does 0-62 mph in 5.6 seconds and has a top speed of 164 mph (265 km/h).

There is also a new sport suspension which lowers the car by 30mm and is complemented with new 19-inch alloys fitted with 235/35 R19 tyres. Brakes are also updated to six-piston sport brake system with 370mm perforated discs.

The lightweight polyurethane plastic body kit consists of a front spoiler and rear skirt in diffusor look.

Interior boasts Recaro sport seats, a sport steering wheel with fixed paddle shifters, green stitching, and Alcantara-wrapped handbrake and gearshift, and aluminium pedals.

Heico Sportiv currently has no plans for a production model, but as always in case of enough demand things could change. Good news is that individual parts will be available soon.
