Here’s all the details on both model in Volvo’s press release, but they have not reveled for how much premium over normal models you can have these brilliant special editions.

“Both cars are designed around the growing number of people who appreciate the possibility of tailoring their cars to suit individual tastes. The Executive version of the S80 radiates exclusive luxury while our R-Design models are developed for buyers who want an extra sporty look,” says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Car Corporation.

The Volvo S80 is the most exclusive Volvo sedan model – and the Executive version features details that emphasise the sober Scandinavian design and the sophisticated comfort of the spacious sedan.
The Executive badge gives a discreet hint that this is an S80 beyond the norm. Inside, the upgraded S80 Executive is the first Volvo model with an instrument panel top in leather, available in espresso brown or off black. Among the interior details that give the S80 Executive a more exclusive character are ventilated soft leather seats with massage function, leather door panels, an integrated analogue clock on the instrument panel and the aluminium centre consol storage.

Specially designed, extra thick carpets reinforce the sober impression. The opportunity to install a fridge in the rear seat, combined with a set of Swedish crystal glasses, also contributes to the enhanced feeling of luxury and comfort.

Specially designed details and new wheels
The V70 R-Design comes with a number of specially developed exterior and interior design details.
The exterior has unique design details in the front, LED turning indicators integrated into door mirrors with silk metal covers and a unique, diamond cut 18-inch wheel called “Ixion”.
On the inside, there are leather upholstery trimmed in off black, leather around the gear selector, and black floor-mats with contrasting stitching.
