Re: Volov C30 makes it to Semi Finalist round (dagovna)

Production Preview:<p>Aston Martin Rapide - This just isn't fair. That is one beautiful car!<p>Buick Enclave - Nice looking crossover. Too Bad it wont be ready for years.<p>Mini Traveller - UGLY!<p>Volvo C30 - I'm a bit biased but I'd love to see Volvo get the award.

What color? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> I will make sure it has at least 260 hp when you pick it up from us! We have a performance division <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> I can get @ 375hp (maybe more if you are daring!) from an 06 R...so 260 HP from a C30 is "nooooo problem" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Quit teasing and get back to me when you can project a OSD delivery date.<p>As much as I can't wait to see the final product, what it has to offer will determine how eager I am going to get my hands on one.<p>

<I>Quit teasing and get back to me when you can project a OSD delivery date.</I> <p><br>My best guess is summer of 08......but that is Volvo's decision. Obviously, nothing has been even mentioned at this point. <br>If you want...ask flybynight to "show" you what he saw <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> when he was in Sweden....pretty cool!
