Welcome to Swedespeed.

Back in 1999 we set out on a simple mission: to provide Volvo enthusiasts with the most thorough online resource possible. Since then our coverage of all things Volvo — news, feature articles, photo galleries and discussion forums — has gone unmatched defining Swedespeed as the definitive online resource. If this is your first time here, take a look at what’s inside:

Daily News
For a small Swedish carmaker, Volvo manages to generate a surprising amount of news, especially when motorsports, aftermarket and lifestyle stories are factored in. Check our news feed daily to stay up on the latest happenings in the Volvo world.
Road Tests
Every year we drive dozens of new cars including not only the latest Volvos, but also numerous competitors’ cars. Our informed staff will share their first-hand impressions of each new model, often putting you behind the wheel before the cars reach local dealerships.
Feature Cars
Swedespeed would be nothing without its readers, and we like to support you just as you support us. Our Features section highlights your own projects, along with shop-built cars from our favorite aftermarket tuners. If you think your car is worth showing the world, share it with us at features@swedespeed.com.
Project Cars
Brand new or merely new to us, Swedespeed’s staff keeps a fleet of Volvos on hand that we live with, modify, and enjoy on a daily basis. Follow our projects to gather ideas for your car, vicariously experience a possible future toy, and yes, even learn from our mistakes.
Forums
If you’re looking for parts, help, or just someone to appreciate the latest work you’ve done to your machine, our active forums are the place to be. Broken down into categories and by model, you’ll easily find what you need. Buy parts, sell parts, hey - even sell a whole car in our forum classifieds, or comment in the news section about the latest gossip and new model reveals.
Photo Galleries
If a picture’s worth a thousand words, we hope you’re ready for some serious reading. Our galleries include both Volvo’s photography and our own, and covers anything and everything Volvo.

As you can see, if you’re looking for Volvo content and resources, you’ve come to the right place. Look around; we hope you like what you see and make us a regular stop during your daily procrastination. If you’re on Facebook, show your support by becoming a fan.

Swedespeed is a publication of Vortex Media Group, a leading independent online publishing company. Among its sister sites are VWvortex.com, Fourtitude.com, Mwerks.com, TurboNines.com, and KilometerMagazine.com. We hope you enjoy what we deliver as much as we do creating it.

Advertise on Swedespeed

Swedespeed provides a unique opportunity to reach thousands of passionate motoring enthusiasts every month. Swedespeed readers are educated and are active in a variety of lifestyle activities ranging from amateur motorsports to travel to outdoor activities. All of this, of course, in addition to their primary passion- European cars and motorcycles.

Swedespeed was designed with careful consideration to maximum advertising impact. That means fewer - but better positioned - ad locations than on other automotive sites. All our banner placements are IAB-standard units, and we've designed the pages for future flexibility should preferences change.

In addition to standard ad units, we offer some very unique “outside-the-box” opportunities, which we would be happy to share with you.

If you are interested in reaching Swedespeed's unique and desirable readership, drop us an inquiry by e-mail at advertising@swedespeed.com. One of our staff will be in contact with you to explain all the features, benefits and special opportunities available to Swedespeed advertisers.
