I received some bad news today regarding the S80R. Volvo had been working on a 400hp AWD version of the S80, to be dubbed the S80R most likely. The car would have used an AWD system that was different from the Haldex AWD or the previous Viscous Coupling, though we're not sure whether that was due to packaging or power levels. Haldex shouldn't have had a problem though with the power levels, so we can assume it was packaging. <P>I believe the motor would have been a version of the current 6cyl.<P>Unfortunately, I can now share this info with you only because I have been told that the project has been shelved. The costs on the car, and its developement were getting out of hand, so for now.....no go. <P>Perhaps though, if the S60R (confirmed, and possibly in dealers by this time next year) and the V70R (not fully confirmed yet) are successful enough, then Volvo could still go ahead and produce the S80R.
