Is this the ultimate taxi? A 1995 Volvo 850 T5-R Wagon in Sweden with 300 bhp & 260+ kmh? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> Taxi, taxi!<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.ultimatetaxi.com/gfx/volvocab.jpg"> <P>-Drew

With the ride comfort from a T5-R, I think I'd rather take an E55 wagon, or the Brabus one.<BR>

The comfort comes from driving in a Volvo, so its a little rough, does this mean they would not like my plans of Ohlins suspension at all. As for the Titans I am glad my city does a half ass job of road care. I have driven in New York with my car and blew a Pzero, tire was screwed but rim was ok thank god I put a full size spare in the trunk, it would have been a long ride home on that thing they call a spare!

So...there's no or very little ride comfort for the passengers then. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif">

Those titans would be bent on its first customer. Though it'd be pretty funny sitting in the back and listening to some washed up actor welcoming me to the city.
