Re: 480 Meeting in Belgium (BenES)

What are the specifications for the 480? A very pretty car. Are they 4/5/6 cylinders? Turbo?<br>Excuse my ignorance, this is a brand new Volvo for me! <br>Oooh, so many cars to import... Why can't they just sell everything here! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 480 Meeting in Belgium (BenES)

Interesting BenES.<br>Thanks for posting these pics.<p>From a distance, I would never have picked these to be Volvos.<br>They lack the distinctive Grill that has become a Volvo trademark.<p>It's almost as if they were heading in a completely different design direction (close to Mazda or Porsche?).<p>Volvo has found a way to maintain their trademark look while introducing contemporay elements with the S80/S60s.<br>They didn't quite do that with these 480's.<p>

Re: 480 Meeting in Belgium (Harrison)

Hi Harrison,<p>It's a sort of folluw up from the P1800 ES (sort of coupé/break) with also a reardoor in glass. The car was produced from '86 -'95<p>The typical Volvo Grill is on the car except it's under the bumper, maybe you can see it better on this picture.<p> <IMG SRC="http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0QADsBGESW0HcrhINquEQQOHsxC7Io4!NAqIuW5T8zOIlS9gRJRawuc0*hPChKxOFOHJTFkKyyH4KLzukHdK5ui21!0VkavUoqo7sBBxwdBk/480us.jpg?dc=4675379551711354818" BORDER="0"> <p>Here is a better picture of the rear, it has also a bit of the shoulders of the other Volvo's (while a 740 doesn't have this)<p>The dual exhaust is not standard, the black rear lights are standard.<p> <IMG SRC="http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0UAAWAxcZ8Rgrzhs*e0NOWaqmkDv4jAyQNyO7xwv!4rXSIs2m1XXKFqV33E8Ww0wGRuOB5dIGw1RaG5xc!vCv6QD!8H77FWcDlYU1qm4CIRCydQMQJ1lS1oyC2g8ccNoP/480uitlaatlinksrechts.jpg?dc=4675391377515178215" BORDER="0"> <br><BR><BR>

Re: 480 Meeting in Belgium (BenES)

That car looks like a blast to throw around in the corners! Looks very nimble. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Are you autocrossing it in any of those pics?
