Diesel Locomotive from Gothenburg

Volvo has never been in the train manufacturing business up to now, but its diesel models take off like locomotives. So the comparison with trains is completely justified, especially since Volvo recently decided to replace the somewhat older engines it had been buying from Audi for years with ones of its own in-house design. The new motor is made in the Skövde manufacturing plant and uses “common rail” technology for direct fuel injection. Straight from the factory, the motor is good for 120 kw / 163 horsepower, but its design allows enough leeway for increasing performance up to the vicinity of 200 hp.

The noted Volvo performance tuning company MR Sweden Motorsport of Lübeck, Germany, was happy to take up this challenge. In developing their solution, Marcus Reumann and his team were not trying to achieve astronomical horsepower figures, but rather to tune the motor in such a way that it would provide high torque. The driver should not have to shift gears frequently, but be able to pass quickly if necessary. The Lübeck team set these goals for themselves, and they have met them. After the performance tuning, the motor produces 151 kw / 205 hp. Maximum torque has been increased from the standard 340 Nm up to 400 Nm. The heavy station wagon now manages the sprint from 80 to 120 kph, which is so important on narrow country highways, in 5.2 seconds in fourth gear. This will be good to know in numerous passing maneuvers. And if necessary, the Volvo V70 is capable of doing up to 225 kph, at which speed the motor reaches its maximum rpm in fifth gear.

At MR Sweden Motorsport, the route to increased performance follows the usual proven steps. The greatest role in the performance upgrade was played by the revamped motor management system, which increases boost as needed up to 1 bar. In addition, fuel injection time is extended by letting it begin earlier. A sports air filter and a three-inch stainless steel sports exhaust pipe from the catalytic converter together contribute about 10 horsepower.

Whoever is “only” interested in increasing performance — and discreetly, at that — can drive happily away into the sunset at this point as a satisfied customer.

But drivers who also want to give their Volvos a sports chassis, attractive wheels, and a distinctive appearance, will find just what they’re looking for at MR Sweden Motorsport.

The chassis was developed by MR Sweden Motorsport in its own extensive tests. By installing sports shock absorbers and lowering the chassis by 35 millimeters, a tighter but still comfortable symbiosis was achieved.

The large wheels match the new chassis. Here, MR Sweden Motorsport offers two-part aluminum wheels with outer rings of stainless steel. The wheels are sized 8.5 x 18 and fitted with Conti Sport Contact 2 tires sized 225/40-18.

To top things off, the optical upgrade also includes headlight covers painted to match the car, a matching roof spoiler, black tinted taillights, and tinting decals for the rear window and the four rearmost side windows.

As far as the interior is concerned, Volvo traditionally leaves hardly anything to be desired. But a decor set of genuine wood will make you feel even more at home.

Upgrade Prices:

  • For the motor upgrade, including the sports air filter, the price is €1,155.01.

  • The three-inch stainless steel sports exhaust pipe from the catalytic converter costs €997.03.

  • The chassis can be had for €1,145.81; the wheel set for €2,830.00.

  • The roof spoiler painted to match the car amounts to €337.50 without brake light.

  • The headlight covers painted to match the car will set you back €100.13.

  • The tinted taillights go for €498.51.

  • The five-piece tinting decal set goes for €450.00.

  • The genuine wood decor set runs to €352.80. 

Allow about 10 working hours for installation of all components.
