<IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/george/xcr.jpg"> <P>Okay, I've been building this car in my head for the last 24 hours, so I thought I'd put it in pixels. It's photoshopped and not real. <P>Imagine it though, T-5 or stronger motor, spaceball manual tranny, V70 Volvo Ocean Race wheels, V70 T-5 aluminum interior trim, the new HID lights etc. Makes me wanna buy an XC.

That's exactly the car I'd have bought had I the choice. Go anywhere, and faster <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>

Yeah, 300hp would be even nuttier. I'll tell ya, I've always kind of seen myself in a V70 rather than an XC, but I think I could seriously handle a car like this.

That is a beautiful car. Is the paint color graphite black or solid black? If Volvo considers building them, I'd make a deposit on one right now.<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by [email protected]:<BR><B> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/george/xcr.jpg"> <P>Okay, I've been building this car in my head for the last 24 hours, so I thought I'd put it in pixels.

I was trying to make the car black. It was a color change from the blue XC Ocean Race picture that I based this on. My color transform only got so dark before it started to effect the pic. I like the color though, in whichever they could produce it. Maybe they will <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">. If they don't maybe we'll just have to build one.

Keep the aluminum exterior trim, lose the roof rails, keep the big "XC" mirrors...and I'm in. Where do I send the check?<P>- Darell

Yeah, the spoiler will be nice, but I think if it can get one of those roof rail with some aluminum finish. Almost like the Audi kinda look.<BR>I like wagon, but the more I look at this car's aluminum trim...the more I am falling in love with the XC. Man....maybe I should try to lease the Ocean Race XC.<BR>Heheh..I can almost get used to drive this wagon/SUV hybrid looking car. And when you have all these fancy new features...only thing I need is an bigger turbo~!

Ya know....the wing does look cool. But if I had to do it over again, I think I'd skip it. The problem is when I lift the hatch with the box on the top. I have to mount the box ALL the way forward to keep the wing from hitting it. But then, looking cool has never been easy....<P><BR>Hmmm...but looking again....if I had the roof rails anyway, I could put the cross-bars anywhere, and all would be good. Go for the WING!<P>- Darell<p>[This message has been edited by darell (edited 08-17-2001).]

Yeah, the aluminum trim, and who'd have thunk it, makes it for me as well. I'd do a black on black and put the trim on it, then upgrade the wheels, turbo, take over the world, then maybe the universe and at that point I'd be the king of the castle <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">.

Hey George, can you try to fix those plastic body trim to be the same color as the rest of the car? I mean in the Ocean Race blue....I'm just very curious....thanks.
