Check this out, the Volvo Aluma Coupe with a T6 engine in the back, driving the rear wheels!

Is it just me or they have mounted the right hand side (our right hand side) tire backward? As far as directional tires are concern...I thought that's not how you are supposed to mount them.
It's scary how these people can build a kit car like this and don't know the concept of directional tires. Makes you wonder about rest of the car's reliability, doesn't it?

I don't know anything about this car, it is the first time that I have seen it. All I know is that the owner of the site where the picture is from, lives in Sweden.

For some reason, the left and right side of the car has the tires rotating in a different direction, and those are directional tires. I am not sure why they did this.

Drew,
Maybe it's for better performance and better TRACTION?
j/k.
Well..maybe there's something to it that we just don't know better.
Like the local Midas guys did on my 240's front tires. Monkeys always gonna be monkeys.

WOW! That's amazing I must say! I think I have the answer to the directional tire thing. Being that the car is most likely not street legal (no wheel covers) maybe he drives it on a track, where you only go in one direction, anyhow that's my take on it.

It's amazing how well those R front bumpers fit on the 900/S90. It almost looks like it came from the factory that way. I had to look twice. It must fit flush to the bottom of the 90's top portion. That's itneresting, and also quite attractive.

That's an I5 in there too right? Hmmm, that's a really wild car.
