The Volvo V50 is one of the models that is least associated with the term vehicle tuning. From Volvo as Lifestyle combo advertised with Scandinavian flair, it was never really able to assert itself in the premium compact class, which is why it is rarely found on German roads at least. A rarity is probably one modified copy the model series, which is often used as a Pampersbomber and Ikea transporter, and whose customers in most cases do not care at all about changing the look of their car. Hand on heart: When was the last time you saw a tuned Volvo V50? You don't know? That doesn't matter, because we don't know ourselves whether there is a second so heavily modified example like this V50, which is in Thailand turns its laps, and immediately attracts attention due to spectacular renovations.
Wider, deeper, more blatant.
The first thing to do at the front is that Custom “Hyper Wagon” body kit from Garage Unique, which borrows heavily from the design of the super sports car Lykan Hypersports, a hypercar from Lebanon. The W Motors Lykan Hypersports was the first supercar to be built in the Middle East and was produced in a small series between 2013 and 2016. The blatant bodykit from Garage Unique, a tuning company from Bangkok, Thailand, not only has an extreme front design, but also an enormous one Widebody look as well as various carbon parts, which give the family station wagon an unmistakable style. side skirts, roof spoiler as well as rear diffuser are of course also made of carbon fiber to stay true to the carbon style. The sophisticated station wagon rolls up 18-inch aluminum from Work with the model name Master S1, on the Toyo R888 tires in the format 225/40 at the front and 265/35 at the rear axle.
They live behind the rims Brembo brake discs one Mitsubishi Evo VIII, which on the front axle have a diameter of 330 mm, and on the rear axle 320 mm to have. A provides the necessary depth Airride chassis from Hop-Up Airsus, which presses the V50 very close to the asphalt as soon as it is set to zero bar. Equipped in this way, the V50 naturally cuts a fine figure not only in the parking lot of the nearest Ikea branch, but also at every brand-open tuning meeting.
Some modifications have also been made to the interior.
In order to create a sportier driving experience, the tuner Recaro CL7 sports seats which normally do their job in a Type-R model from Honda. Furthermore, were also still Viair advertisements and a control unit for the Airride chassis installed in the center console.
2-liter suction gasoline is currently (still) doing its job.
In this extraordinary Volvo V50 is currently still doing a 2-liter suction gasoline engine with 145 hp and 185 Newton meters maximum torque its service. But it is firmly planned that a Turbokit to provide more power under the hood. On Intercooler was already installed as the first step towards the turbo conversion, but unfortunately we have no information when the turbo will be installed. There are of course still none Information about how much the car will do once the modifications to the drive train are finished. The power is transmitted via a Six-speed automatic auf die Front wheels, and according to our research nothing should change that.
Our conclusion on this Volvo V50:
Finally a car that stands out from the crowd and shows that you can any car model can modify and refine if you have the right ideas. In our opinion, some tuners should follow this philosophy as an example in order to add a little more color to the tuning scene.
