Las Vegas, Nevada – Mere weeks after the global unveiling of the new Volvo C30 at the 2006 Paris Motor Show, Volvo, in conjunction with three aftermarket tuning companies, has unleashed three custom C30 models at SEMA.
The three cars, all highly modified iterations of the production Volvo C30, are the separate visions of Evolve Cars, Heico Sportiv and Burton Snowboards, and ipd.
Built purely as design concepts and prototypes, each tuner took a decidedly different take on what the ultimate Volvo C30 could be. Volvo Cars supplied each company with a production C30 T5 with a six speed manual transmission and gave them only one rule to follow: all Volvo safety features must remain functional. Other than that, they were free to let their imaginations run wild.
