Late summer for the new S60's? Hummm.. maybe a temp car is the way to go.<p>And before anyone else gets you, it should probably be 'P24' and not 'P3'. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p> <A HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo_S60#Concept" TARGET="_blank">wikipedia</A>

Re: (Jeremy7o2)

One of the replies on that page makes an excellent point. Volvo should release a pack for Forza or something. God knows that game needs more Volvos.

Re: One step closer to P24 S60R (tomedkaz)

Can we just lose the game gimmicks and get details on the car itself? This is retarded. That's a fair amount of money spent on that sort of thing from the marketing budget.

Re: (TWMn)

As I posted in another thread, this game is a useless marketing exercise, IMO. Volvo should sneak the car into the next GT or Forza, not some stand alone game. And if they're really serious about targeting a younger audience, focus on the priduct!! The C30 was the right base, but a lack of any understanding on how to market it (see BMW for Mini) and a lack of good mileage or gadget count meant that Volvo missed the mark again. <p>As much as I hope to the contrary, I really think Volvo is going down the wrong path again with respect to the S60. If it follows the engineering path of the XC60, it could be a winner but not if they don't support it. <p>And if the S60 does poorly, Volvo is done.

The AtSpeed World Challenge GT S60R was in both also.
