Is this a previous gen R?





I'll see if they won't open the hood when I return. Glad I had my camera...

I agree. I'm assuming it's the camera on your phone that's making it look like the car has an almost matte finish. lol The hoodscoop is so out of place on that car that it almost looks like a photoshop.

P.S. If the seats have suede inserts, then it's probably an R.

Re: R with a hood scoop? (Johann)

Turns out the hood scoop is very functional. Bet it eliminates heatsoak pretty good. Positioned to blow down back side of engine onto turbo.


Mechanic said guy used to have aftermarket turbo on, putting out 400 hp. Swapped back to stock.


Was a serious racer, I'm sure he spent some time at Nurburgring.


Here is the badging.


So was this just a T-5? I don't quite know the lineage of older gen sporty Volvos. T-5s versus 850Rs etc.

I agree.

Regarding the 850 hood scoop, don't you think that the ram air effect from that scoop would render that fan useless?


Maybe the guy was an autocrosser?

You call that a hood scoop? Look at the S60 on the right.


I would like it if it didn't have that hideous wing on the back. Still trying to decide in the doors, lol.
