Volvo are due to launch a new S60R early next year with 300 bhp as standard and 300lb ft torque!<P>There's no mention that this is an all new powerplant, just a bit of 'tweeking' to the existing T5. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>We all know that 300 horses are possible (especially those fortunate enough to go out with Kai <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif"> ), but does this mean we can all go down to our local dealers for a 50+ bhp original equipment upgrade & keep our warranties in tact???

Of course some bigger turbo....so, not sure if it would really be an easy task to just go to the dealer and put all the goodies on just like that. <P>Actually, the car itself will have more awesome features than just its powerplant, as all of you already know...that kinda of power can be achieved with some work and effort.<P>I think we should be more excited about the other goodies that this car is going to offer. It'd be interesting to tweak this car instead of the normal T5. Could have about the same result, but could also create some silly high HP. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

It would probably be comparable to upgrading a VW/Audi 180hp 1.8T to the 225hp 1.8T that came in the TT. Fuel mapping had something to do with it, but it was really much different as a whole package (internal parts, ECU, turbo, IC, etc). Not impossible, but not easy either.<P>

I reckon it'll be nearer the £35K mark for the S60R and around £40K for the V70R (same engine) which would put them about £10K more than a standard T5.<P>They're both 4-wheel drive so you have to pay for that plus the extra power.<P>There's some pictures and quite a lot of information on both cars at <A HREF="http://www.conceptlabvolvo.com/vcc/pcc/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.conceptlabvolvo.com/vcc/pcc/</A> <P>Scott<BR>

Actually.... <A HREF="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000233.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000233.html</A> <BR>Doesn't look as impressive as it was going to be, but got a nice stance to the car.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by SG:<BR><B>There's some pictures and quite a lot of information on both cars at <A HREF="http://www.conceptlabvolvo.com/vcc/pcc/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.conceptlabvolvo.com/vcc/pcc/</A> <P>Scott</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>
