‘Naughty Volvo Tour’ Expands by Incorporating Drive Events into the All-New Volvo S60 Preview Experience

ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (September 24, 2010) – Volvo Cars of North America, LLC (VCNA)
will host special consumer drive events to showcase its all-new S60 sport sedan as it was
meant to be experienced – on the road. These events are part of the Naughty Volvo Tour
– a series of experiential events to preview the S60 – which began in July and will
continue through November.
“Initial feedback from the Naughty Volvo Tour has been extremely positive and has
resulted in nearly 200 S60 pre-sales to date, which is impressive considering no one’s had
the chance to drive the car yet. It really speaks to the strength of the car’s beautiful new
design, the enthusiasm of our loyalists and Volvo’s reputation,” said Doug Speck, VCNA
president and CEO. “We really focused on the driving dynamics to make the all-new S60
our sportiest Volvo ever so we’re excited to hear what people have to say once they drive
The drive events will allow prospective buyers and car enthusiasts to take on the S60’s
300 horsepower T6 engine with AWD in a series of performance activities like a slalom
demo, suspension bumps, an “S” cornering exercise and a timed autocross. They can also
experience Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake, Volvo’s groundbreaking
technological solution which utilizes a radar- and camera-based system to detect
pedestrians in front of the car, warn the driver if someone walks into its path, and then
automatically activate the S60’s full braking power if the driver fails to respond in time.
Upcoming drive event locations and dates are:
· Miami: Gulfstream Park Race Track, October 2-3, 2010
· Philadelphia: King of Prussia Mall, October 9-10, 2010
· Chicago: Arlington Park Race Track, October 16-17, 2010
· Los Angeles: Santa Anita Racetrack, October 23-24, 2010
Attendees can participate in a competition to win an Apple® iPad, and will also be
entered into a contest to win an all-new Volvo S60 and a trip to Sweden. For more
