Re: Could this have been the new R? (CM2RAS)

Pretty sure it became this concept car, as opposed to that illustration.<p> <IMG SRC="http://image.motortrend.com/f/29272407+w750/2011-volvo-s60-front-three-quarters-view.jpg" BORDER="0">

looks like this would give the 370z, G37, and even 645 BMW some competition. Thats if they make it tho

I'm fairly certain that was a student design project with no actual affiliation with Volvo.

Plan for 2011 S60 and V60 to be equipped with a 3.0 twin Turb...so in that case if volvo does plan on comming out with the R again...i assume its going to have more than 300 ponies
