Not quite, but that is a classic, again the turbo models can be tuned to serious power, the 240 model show in the pic is RWD as well, something that Volvo should have stuck to, but unfotunately they moved to FWD on the later T5 models, unless you have the V70 AWD then you get a lot of torque steer, but that's all part of the fun.

Volvo's are very safe too, so should you have an accident, not that it would be your fault, then you should be ok and re appear in fine health!!

Bison you are such a Gloucester boy racer stereotype its unbelievable...
I love cars, what can I say.... I have been 'cruising' since I was 17 round Gloucester and Cheltenham, I would hardly say Boy Racer, I mean how many boy racers have volvo's? I think there is a slight difference, the one's you refer to are generally driving pimped up Saxo's and Renault Clios with neon lights underneath, far to tacky for my liking. My Volvo is classy, sophisticated, has real road presence and roar power. You wouldn't know it was such a beast by looking at it, but if you heard it those in the know would understand it's not just an add on exhaust that makes lots of noise, it's the sound of real power.

I'm an enthusiast, nothing wrong with it, that's my passion. I have spent a ridiculous amount of money on that car, some people would question why, but I love it.
