In honor of the eleventh Volvo Ocean Race this year, The Swedish truck maker announced a special limited edition of 600 specially-designed ‘Volvo Ocean Race’ Volvo FH and Volvo FH16 trucks.
The cab is available in two colours: a white ‘Millennium Silver Metallic’ and a dark blue ‘Dark Knight Pearl’. Both colours have been especially chosen for the Volvo Ocean Race Limited Edition and so have the black painted grille, the side stripes with a wave decoration and the globetrotter sign displaying the words ‘Volvo Ocean Race’. There are also ‘Limited Edition’ emblems on the sides of the cab.
The sailing-inspired interior features exclusive materials and details. With plenty of leather, exclusive seams and embroidered details, the driver area exudes quality and craftsmanship. The leather-covered seats are embellished with a blue accent colour, while other interior details such as the steering wheel, mats, door panels and grab rails have unique accent blue stitching. Curtain retainers made of sheet cord are an unexpected feature that heightens the overall effect.
The Volvo Ocean Race Limited Edition will be available for order from June 20th, with the first of the trucks to be delivered in mid-September – a few weeks before the start of the 2011 Volvo Ocean Race.
