Volvo Launches Boston Red Sox Special Edition C30 227HP

If you’ve ever been to Massachusetts, we’re pretty sure that you’ll have noticed the number of cars bearing New England Patriot and Red Sox bumper stickers. Of course, placing a bumper sticker on your 90’s Hyundai or Buick is one thing, but buying and travelling around with an all-new Volvo C30 adorned with Red Sox badges is another...

In any case, the limited edition version C30 227Hp “Boston Red Sox” was commissioned by Volvo and Major League Baseball to symbolize the partnership between the Swedish carmaker and the Boston Red Sox baseball team. Only 107 of the special edition C30s will be produced with each car built to commemorate a Red Sox victory during the 2007 season and bearing a numbered dash plaque indicating which of the 107 victories each individual car represents. -Continued

Like the C30 R-Design, each Red Sox Special Edition C30 is fitted with a matte-silver finish for the outside mirror housings and front grille surround. Front fog lights, power-assisted and heated front seats, a blue watch-dial instrument cluster, leather-wrapped steering wheel with aluminum inlays, sport pedals, sport shifter, vehicle security alarm, soft load cover, cruise control and the Dynaudio Sound System with Sirius Satellite Radio are also included.

As you might have already guessed, the Boston Red Sox Special Edition C30 is available exclusively at Volvo Retailers in New England. Equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission with Geartronic, the special edition model is priced at $29,465.
