Wow, and I didn't think volvo could push it any further right now than the S60 R. Yes, that would be fun to drive.

Remember the 760 Turbo wagons? They could beat a Porsche 944S around a racetrack.

THose things last a long time too with very few problems if you take care of them. Even if price is high, with Volvo you can negotiate A LOT. We were about to buy a new S80 for around $30k which is much damn lower than whatever 40k they retail it at.

After our rental experience with the V70, you couldn't stick a gun to our head and make us buy a Volvo. That looks nice and I'm sure that S60R is fast but I was less than impressed with Volvo as a whole based off our V70

Front definitely has some styling cues from an R34 GT-R... The side profile looks a bit like a 3-series to me, and the rear 3/4 also has a bit of 3-series in it.

Please don't base your experience off a rental car. If everyone based their opinion off of rental cars, no one would EVER EVER EVAR buy American, patriot or not!

you are either blind or lost your intelligence cells to a snow storm.
No really, the first pic looks like a WRX without a hood scoup.

The other pics make it look more like a BMW.

Really, people. There's a thread with the same link on the front page with the same link. Locked, too.
Edit: My bad.


Nice car though, I give it 6.8/10 because it looks just a little rice. What are all the white specs? I would say lens flare, but...

Maybe because that one was a R of this thread. :p Oh and those white specs are stickers... :confused: :disgust: ;)

If it's the same shell as the usual S60, IRL it doesn't look at all like BMW or WRX from any angle.

They are damned nice cards, and the speaker system is great from stock, and they go a bit too, but they're huge!
