Volvo's hot C30 tuner concepts

Volvo has finally unveiled the three C30 concepts it developed for SEMA with the help of tuning companies Evolve, Heico, 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 supplied each company 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. The results are nothing short of spectacular.

The Evolve C30, for example, puts out 507hp through the C30’s AWD system, while the Heico C30 has 300hp and adjustable height suspension. The IPD C30 produces “only” 384hp, but has fully functional gullwing doors.

Evolve C30

Horsepower is the name of the game here, with 507hp pumping through all four massive tires. Sophisticated race-inspired suspension, gigantic brakes and a yellow high gloss paint scheme highlight the Evolve C30. Sequential twin turbos, exotic exhaust plumbing and an advanced heat exchanger promise eye-popping performance from this dream C30. Inside are highly bolstered seats, a safety structure and custom leather touches.

Heico Sportiv/Burton Snowboard C30

A joint collaboration between German tuner Heico Sportiv and Burton Snowboards, this C30 is meant to be the ultimate lifestyle vehicle. Fully drivable with 300hp and factory electronically controlled all-wheel drive, this dream C30 features a height adjustable suspension, custom cut Toyo tires and a six layer camouflage paint job. Inside, there's a portable GPS system and gleaming 2008 Burton snowboards and boots.

IPD

The International Product Development (IPD) SEMA C30 come draped in the colors of the Swedish flag - there’s nothing like a little national pride to draw the crowds in Vegas. Producing 384hp, the ipd C30 retains its factory front-drive layout and offers a thoroughly custom fabricated interior, highlighted by a touch screen in the floating center stack and a heads-up instrument display. But the icing on the cake is the fully functioning gull-wing style doors.
