<br>I've read that the 2006 s60r and v70r 0-60 times are 5.4 and 5.6 sec with the manual transmission. Does anyone know the times with the 6 speed automatic?<p>I've heard it goes down to 7.2 sec for the s60r. Can anyone confirm?<p>Thanks,<br>Ed

The 7.2 claim is for the 2004/2005 automatics which had only 5 gears and were detorqued from the start and further detorqued in the early gears. The 2006 GT is a six speed and is claimed to do 0-60 in the mid 6's.

Re: 0-60 times for 2006 s60r and v70r GT automatic versions? (ed94080)

Official Volvo numbers are 6.4s for the 2006 S60R GT and 6.6s for the 2006 V70R GT. This is probably what a non-professional driver would get with the manual transmission anyway - the 5.4 seconds is a pipe dream.<p>My 2006 S60R GT feels much faster than my 2004 6-speed V70R (at least when in "sport mode").

Re: 0-60 times for 2006 s60r and v70r GT automatic versions? (MagoonR)

<br>Thanks for the info.<p>Interesting... when I drove the S60R it seemed faster than a 6.5 0-60 time, but the slight turbo lag might make it seem that way... i.e 0-10 in 2 sec and then 10-60 in 4.5 sec or something like that... I currently drive a 2001 Mercedes CLK 55 AMG that is rated to do 0-60 in 4.9 sec and the s60R felt only slight slower... etc.<p>Best,<br>Ed

The R would feel faster because of the turbo spooling up as opposed to a linear power delivery which actually may feel slower but really isn't.

Re: 0-60 times for 2006 s60r and v70r GT automatic versions? (PhilUp)

<br>Agreed. Turbos feel faster than they actually are...<p>Of the dozen or so cars I have owned, two have been turbos. I had a 1995 Saab 900 SE Turbo hatchback with a manual transmission.<p>Saab used to market it as "Turbo rush" I liked the Saab but once I moved from Boston to CA I traded it in on a rear wheel drive 1997 BMW 528i. No snow etc.<p>I also had a 2001 Audi allroad with the 2.7 bi-turbo with the Automatic Tiptronic transmission. Liked that car as well but ended up trading it for my current car the CLK 55 AMG Mercedes as my wagon needs changed. <p>Don't get me wrong. The AMG definitely feels faster. Like a jet taking off and your back is pinned to the seat. The s60r feels fast too. But more like a balloon full of air of being let go... more of a frenzied fast. <p>Which is all to your point. Turbos feels faster than they are... <p>But in this case, even with consideration of that, the automatic Volvo s60r still felt faster than a 6.5 0-60 time...<p>I would have guessed 5.9 which is what the Audi A3 3.2 DSG quattro is rated.<p>Thanks,<br>Ed <p><br>

The P2 R is faster than it feels when compared with other Volvo turbo cars that I've onwed.<p>Firstly, 'tubro rush' vs. 'turbo lag' are like saying the glass is half full vs. the glass is half empty.<p>My old '96 850T Wagon had 'turbo rush' so much so that in sport mode if you didn't have a good grip on the steering wheel it felt like you'd loose it when it hit the higher RPM's. My 850T <I>felt</I> like a very fast car (and for a famly-hauler wagon it was) but it was <I>not nearly as fast as if felt</I>. My '02 S60 T5 also felt very fast and also had some turbo rush up around 4000RPM but was not nearly as fast as it felt (I think my best 0-60 was 7 seconds flat, which is NOT that fast).<p>As for current P2 <I>R</I>'s IMHO they are sneaky fast and faster than they feel. With so much torque so low in the power band you really don't feel the 'turbo rush' like in other/old tubro Volvo's (almost zero turbo lag).<p>When I switched from my T5 to my R this year I was initially a bit dissapointed because my R felt just as fast off the line as my T5 (I knew my R had to be faster but it didn't intially feel so). My feeling was VERY WRONG. Using my G-timer in my stock R I do 0-60mph in a quick 6seconds.<p>LTA<p><br>

I know with the 04 R that I have, and a few engine mods.(see my signature) I am running mid 5's 0-60. My best was a 5.34. The ecu tuning has the greatest aftermarket impact on this time.
