Ownership

An Unforgettable Adventure

Following the road ahead is often the easiest route to take, but it rarely leads to exciting discoveries. This is our philosophy when we design our cars and the thinking behind Factory Delivery Experience. Factory Delivery Experience gives you the unique opportunity to collect your new Volvo from our factory in Gothenburg, Sweden. But that’s not all you’ll find waiting for you when you arrive in the home of Volvo Cars

Heritage

The race to the horizon

The fascinating background and history of the Volvo Ocean Race have turned it into one of the best-known and toughest endurance races in the sporting calendar. For four and a half decades, participants have challenging themselves and each other as they sail its course. In this article, we will trace the race back to its beginning - and beyond, looking at the developments that shaped modern sea travel and made it possible in the first place. We trace the history of the race all the way back to the opening of the Panama and Suez canals, and then how - decades later - Robin Knox-Johnson became the first man to sail single-handedly round the planet. We then describe the foundation of the race in the 70s, and the developments that turned it into the event we know today - with its cutting-edge boats, teams of world champion sailors and non-stop coverage.
