European version of the V70R. I am not sure what year this article was written.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.4x4mag.co.uk/marpics/V70Rawd.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>There's nothing lacking in the go department here, 250bhp from its turbocharged 2.3 litre, five cylinder engine, a top speed of 152mph and 0-60 figure of a respectable 6.5 seconds all driving through a five speed manual gearbox. Peak torque is 3300lb ft between 2,700rpm and 5,100 rpm giving acres of effortless mid-range overtaking power and plenty of flexibility. <p>Full article:<br><A HREF="http://www.4x4mag.co.uk/marfeatures/magtestvolvo.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.4x4mag.co.uk/marfeatures/magtestvolvo.html</a>

That's amazing! I don't think I was a member back then...Good grief I think I had just gotten my driver's license.
