Volvo fans were disappointed when Volvo announced earlier that it would drop it’s R performance car series, with cars like the 850R and the recent S60 R being the latest of it’s kind. It recently announced the R alphabet would be brought back again, but not as a line of performance cars, but instead a line of sporty aesthetics-focused bodykits.

Not particularly exciting, but here are the first in a line of R-DESIGN parts. They are for the Volvo C30, S40 and V50 platform sharing trio and include R-DESIGN badges on the grille and steering wheel, as well as a full bodykit with rear roof spoiler, five-spoke alloy wheels in both 17 and 18 inch sizes and an R-DESIGN interior.
