we drove 3 ( swedish plated ) S80 D5's at a london testing ground <br>part of a volvo tesing plus day out, no V8's avable<p>there were 3 pro drivers who took us out turn by turn and did 3 lap's of a 3 mile circut at high speed.<p>the s80 preformed well in the d5 guise with 2 wheel drive and traction off, they came equiped with perelli p7's which seemed to hold up well having been through 7 days of testing they claim to have rotated the tyres once.<p>we tried the blis, & the adptive cruise control, & the collision warning system, the hazards come on under v.hard braking.<p>nice to feel the car slow down with the adptive cruise control and then automatic resume to the set speed, apaarantly 30 % of the braking copabiity is used to slow if necesary to maintain distance.<p>francis henry
