Ha ha .. my dealership found a article that mentioned he drives a charcoal grey S60R<p><br>Not sure were he got this article from but he emailed it to me. Jay Leno would never drive a R..LOL he is more of a hmm...Carrera Gt guy <p>"While driving a Volvo didn't help David Letterman avoid his string of speeding tickets, Volvo's new S60R is a 300-hp powerhouse that's stealthy enough to make it look (from a distance) like Dad's in an ordinary Volvo sedan. All-wheel drive assures all-weather traction, too, so it's a safe everyday family car with a wild streak. The S60R arguably has the best seats in the business, is Volvo safe and solid, comfortable for long trips, and oh so very fast"<br>

Re: David Letterman drives a s60R!! (zigger)

O wow! I'm a HUGE Letterman fan and... I drive an R! We drive the same car! It's like we're the same person... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>-Aaron<br>

Re: (zigger)

Hey dont forget that he drove a old 740 or 760 wagon with a V8 swap <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> so I think he is more into sleepers than Leno who looks more for steamers and speedsters. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Letterman and Rahal own a race team..... Rahal has a Volvo dealership.<p>Paul Newman also has an interest in a Volvo dealership, CT's Own. He also has owned older wagons with V8, so we can assume he has played with an R or 2.<p>

Doesn't Letterman live in CT too? Silly state is thick with 'em! Wait a sec - we're thick with Nutmeggers too! Hmm...<p>Tom.

Their last tuners were 960 wagons. Three were fit with the Mustang 5.0 V8 and were said to pump out 400hp!<p><A HREF="http://www.swedespeed.com/news/publish/Features/printer_33.html" TARGET="_blank">Check Swedespeed for details...</A><p>Don't you think that the synergies of Ford owning Volvo would allow for this...<p><IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/news/uploads/features/07.jpg" BORDER="0"><p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

David Letterman may drive an S60R but Jay Leno has a Lamborghini Murcielago and so much more! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: David Letterman drives a s60R!! (zigger)

I grew up in Ridgefield, Connecticut in the 1980's. David Letterman lived one town over. I remember seeing him in the parking lot of a grocery store driving a red Ferrari 328 with the targa top off, and his big, unmistakable head protruding.<p>Glad to hear he's moved on to a more refined vehicle!

Re: David Letterman drives a s60R!! (mikewelch7)

Dave has always been a car guy...or at least someone who loves to drive fast. For a while he had a bit of a reputation for speeding and getting tix. Wouldn't surprise me if he had an R.<p>-Eric
