Could be an R, or a T-5 with the R front splitter fitted. The interior would give a better clue. Would be a pretty sweet car if it didnt have that silly scoop...those AP brakes are yum.

Re: R with a hood scoop? ("R" Kelly)

If you can please take an interior picture, I assume the car doesn't have badges on the trunk.<p>

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>-Eric<p>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.<br><IMG SRC="http://img126.imageshack.us/img126/6097/1005207small6bc.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Mechanic said guy used to have aftermarket turbo on, putting out 400 hp.

I don't quite know the lineage of older gen sporty Volvos. T-5s versus 850Rs etc.

Yep. T5. Interior confirms that.

You call that a hood scoop? Look at the S60 on the right.<p><IMG SRC="http://15.modified-cars.com/cars/pixlarge/13371_a.jpg" BORDER="0">

Lambo doors on an S40. I don't recall that being a factory option. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Eric
