Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 11/9/2014 Kelly Pleskot

Complete with a nautical color theme and various interior upgrades, the Volvo Ocean Race XC60 makes its debut at the Miami auto show, and commemorates the annual sailing competition that covers thousands of miles.

The Ocean Race XC60 features a special-edition blue exterior, inscribed "Volvo Ocean Race" tread plate, 18-inch wheels, and a special exterior emblem on the front fenders. Inside, buyers have a choice of black or blonde leather with orange contrast stitching. Ocean Race badging can be seen on the floor mats, luggage compartment, and other areas of the car.

The latest Volvo Ocean Race model pays tribute to the round-the-world sailing race the automaker hosts every three years. The 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race began October 4 in Alicante, Spain and will end in Gothenburg, Sweden in June 2015. During the event, a total of 66 skilled sailors will race 38,739 nautical miles through four oceans, stopping in 11 countries on five continents along the way. And while the race will include one U.S. stop, it will not be in Miami, but instead in Newport, R.I. on May 5 next year. Volvo Ocean Race XC60© Provided by MotorTrend Volvo Ocean Race XC60

In the past, Volvo has released Ocean Race Editions for a variety of models. This year marks the fifth round of Ocean Race model debuts, and so far, we've seen special-editions of the V40, V40 Cross Country, V60, V70, and finally, the XC60.

Buyers can expect to pay a small price premium for the special-edition Ocean Race XC60. The model starts at $42,100 when paired with the standard T6 Drive-E powertrain, or $43,600 with the T6 AWD.
