We're all pretty excited about the launch of the 2011 Volvo S60 – the sedan that could make or break Volvo's worldwide appeal. We haven't driven it yet, but the shapely new S60 certainly looks like it means business. We hope that it retains that solid "Volvo-ness" that we've come to love, while adding a welcome dose of driver involvement.
Even though the S60 hasn't quite hit the road yet, Volvo tuner Heico Sportiv already has plans for its first modified version of the new sedan. These renderings show an S60 with sharper, more aggressive design elements, including hot new wheels, a revised front fascia, and a rear diffuser that encompasses quad tailpipes. Mechanically, Heico plans to rework the suspension and exhaust, as well as boosting output to around 330 horsepower – 30 more ponies than the standard S60 T6. We'll take one in matte black, please.
