Volvo » FH Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018
The Volvo FH and Volvo FH16 are available in an exclusive new version inspired by the Volvo Ocean Race since 2017. The Volvo Ocean Race Limited Edition 2017–2018 combines an exceptionally high equipment and comfort level with a unique design and will only be sold in very limited numbers. Customers who wish to enhance safety and performance still further can choose between various optional packages.
Powerful exterior. On the outside the truck's connection to the Volvo Ocean Race is emphasised through the use of an expressive décor in which a red zig-zag pattern contrasts with eye-catching highlights in chrome and black. The Volvo Ocean Race name is clearly displayed both in the Globetrotter sign and on an emblem on the cab sides. As a complement to the other cab colours in the Volvo range, two exclusive metallic liveries are offered - a warm sand-coloured Shimmering Gold and an ice-blue Cool Breeze Metallic.
Warm interior. The cohesive colour and design cues are echoed in the cosy driver environment, which combines premium comfort with high-quality materials and immense attention to detail. The entry step, grab-handles, door panels, carpets, steering wheel, storage compartments and textiles have all been designed to link to the sea and sailing. For instance, the ventilated driver's seat is upholstered in sand-coloured natural leather with blue accents and discreet red zig-zag stitching. The seat backrest features a map showing the start and finish ports for this year's Volvo Ocean Race. The same stylised map pattern is repeated on the close-weave drapes, and the curtain straps echo the zig-zag stitched seam.
The Volvo Ocean Race Limited Edition 2017-2018 is available with a choice of two optional packages. The Performance package allows Volvo FH customers the opportunity to specify a more powerful 13-litre engine producing 500 hp or 540 hp, Volvo I-Shift with Dual Clutch and retarder. The Safety package, which is available for both the Volvo FH and the Volvo FH16, includes features such as burglar alarm, lockable safety box, Lane Change Support, Driver Alert Support and Adaptive Cruise Control.
