We're using this pic out of the Volvo press file. I wish they'd make these wheels available in the US. This car looks great.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/00_v40/large/01.jpg">

I agree completely. Is that color available in the US? And is there any possibility of the manual tranny becoming available in the US on this car anytime soon?<BR><P>

I have seen more V40 than S40 on the road of Vancouver these days, probably because Volvo sportswagon always looks better than sedan. Panama Yellow V40 is so desirable.<P>Tie break between V70 and S60. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

I love that colour! My old 240 was a similar blue (not that real deep dark blue that the 240s had but the other blue). But it wasn't as <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/eek.gif"> eyecatching as that Jelly bean blue.<P>

That color is called, 'Laser Blue'. In Sweden you can get a Volvo S80 2.4T (5-cylinder) Limited Edition in 'Laser Blue'. This car comes standard with auto-leveling, 17-inch wheels, winter package, security package, and the choice of an automatic or manual transmission. This car costs around $31,900 US dollars. This color looks great on the S80.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.geocities.com/drewsrx/lasers80.jpg"> <P>Also, the 1999 and 2000 Volvo V70R was availible in 'Laser Blue'. I think that it is the only 'Laser Blue' Volvo that you can currently get in the United States, if you wanted a new or used one. New, this car was $41,500 US dollars.<P> <IMG SRC="http://a332.g.akamai.net/7/332/936/0001/www.edmunds.com/pictures/29877.jpg"> <P>The Volvo S60R PCC is also 'Laser Blue' with a 'Silver' LandShark body kit.<P>-Drew<P><P>

The V40 would look best with a manual tranny in U.S. trim... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>...ditto for the V70 R AWD! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>
