Ocean Race Volvo editions on the way

New special editions celebrate the start of the Volvo Ocean Race, which ends in Galway.

Volvo has marked the start of the fourth Volvo Ocean Race with the addition of three limited edition, nautically themed models to its range.

The V60, XC60 and XC70 Ocean Race Editions will be available. Engine availability and pricing have not been announced, but each car comes with a choice of two bespoke colours: blue or silver.

The leather seats are 'sail inspired' and come in two-tone black and beige with an embossed Ocean Race logo.

There are more Ocean Race decals on the doors, floor mats and front wings, and lest you forget about the Ocean Race, the instrument panel displays the logo when you start up the car.

The Ocean Race itself starts October 29 in Alicante and ends in Galway on July 7 2012, taking in a further seven destinations in between, including Cape Town and Miami.
