Though its reputation here in the States has been built almost solely on its reputation for safety, Volvo has so much racing heritage that it can realistically create tributes to some of the most historic racing vehicles in its 85-year history. The latest competition-ready Volvo will be on display at the São Paulo Auto Show in Brazil on October 23rd.

Based on the Volvo V60 wagon, the imaginatively named V60 Racing will show off new livery in tribute to the classic 850 models that competed in the British Touring Car Championship in the 1990s. Though it's only being teased at this point, we're expecting a predominately blue and white paint job with a few splashes of yellow.

As cool as it may be, we don't expect to see any road-going V60 models wearing BTCC-inspired livery here in the States. That said, feel free to click on the image above for an enlarged view.

      I just want to punch Volvo's top brass in the face for being so stupid in the North American market.

      Volvo NA are jackasses. Im so tired or SUVs and crossovers just give us a proper wagon! Sell the V60 along side the S60, make a sedan version of V40 sell as S40 and give us V40 too. Refresh the C70, XC70, and S80. Oh and while your at it let us have manual transmissions again. The minute you let the S60 R-Design have a 6-speed manual option Ill be at the dealer to trade is my P2

      The V60 is one of the best designs they have done. It's a shame that VNA thinks we all still pine for Hummers. Jim

        Yeah, I know. Who cares about Volvo anymore????
      • 2 Years Ago
      Volvo? Never heard of them.
        • 2 Years Ago
        Yeah, they are typically only popular in affluent and highly educated neighborhoods, you probably will never see one.
          • 2 Years Ago
          Hey, I live in one of those kinds of neighborhoods. We DO buy Volvo's there. . .. but we buy them for our Au Pairs then donate them to the kidney foundation once a year. We never even change the oil.
