Give the Capitol some! Volvo didn't forget the car-loving lawmakers, lobbyists, lawyers and legislative lapdogs of Lithuanian lineage (well, there must be at least one) of our nation's capital. On the occasion of the Washington DC auto show, the company launched a new special-edition package — the Volvo Ocean Race — commemorating Volvo s sponsorship of the long-distance sailing event of the same name, being held simultaneously. The VOR Volvo XC70 AWD and the VOR Volvo XC90 V8 AWD both include special metallic blue paint with body colored mirror caps, door handles and electric silver side molding, 17-inch polished Oreander wheels aand all-terrain tires, tinted rear windows, power glass moon-roof and special VOR badging — along with special interior appointments. For more on the Volvo Ocean Race, tack this way.
