Nice find.<p>I do not understand the language, but I guess they are saying Volvo is using a turbo version of the V8 with 400-480 horsepower (or is it the 07 inline six with turbo, 285 horsepower?) and a 0-100km in less than 6 seconds (5.x). Is that correct? Can somebody translate?<p>Terrific news <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">.<p><br><i>Modified by lvertvel at 1:21 AM 4-25-2006</i><BR><BR>

Re: (lvertvel)

I´m just going to translate the most important parts.<p>They say Volvo test a R version of the new S80. It will use Volvo's V8 with twin-turbos producing 400 to 480 horsepower. They also develop a twin-turbo version of the new Si6 engine that will produce somwhere around 300 horsepower.<p>The V8 is probably a 5 second car, they have seen a couple of extremely fast Volvos in Gothenburg.<br>And the S80R will have an updated version of Four-C. And there are rumours about the interior as well. It said something about carbonfiber, but I don't trust this until Volvo presents an official press release.<p>// Martin

If anything I would guess this to be a mule for a future S60R in the absence of a new P1 based S60 body being available for testing. I just don't see a S80R in the absence of the S60R...unlesss those rumors of the S60 going away for a few years are true...

Re: (rollie)

What about an S40R? Small quick cars are much more popular than larger ones. A V-8 AWD is already going to be plenty fast. Even in a heavy S80.

Re: (Majisto)

Make no doubt about it, my R or V8 would be a better driving/handling experience if you chopped the power in half AND the weight in half. The weight is what really hurts from a performanc perspective.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Majisto</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">What about an S40R?
