I was looking around at Maserati’s today and thought I look up the Volvo S60 R to see what kind of realistic view the site was giving. <p>I couldn't believe the photos:<br><A HREF="http://autos.yahoo.com/newcars/volvo_s60_r_2006/17474/style_photos.html?refsrc=iy/trim/volvo+s60+r" TARGET="_blank">http://autos.yahoo.com/newcars...s60+r</A>

Re: Yahoo's photos of the R (KillerB)

I have seen a few times in the past where Volvo's own website has had the wrong picture, so I would not be surprised about Yahoo.

To be fair, almost all of the car research sites only show pictures of one trim to represent the whole model line up (T-5 in this case). MSN, cars.com, KBB, carsdirect, Autobytel, Vehix, etc, etc...

its understanable if the whole model line up was the same, but as Phuz just said.... ": "center console of the s60R""<p>comepletly mis-leading, and the pegs, and the door panels, and the gauges, etc<br>

Re: (Copeland)

To 99.99% of the car buying public (and Yahoo) the R is just a different trim level of the S60.

Re: (Copeland)

Two points here..........In SA we had a magazine that tested a supposedly modded S60R with results that made it slower than what other magazines have tested the standard R's at, but the supposed stock R that they tested it againts was a T5, gove figure, hell yes the modded R is gonna be a little bit quicker than the stock T5 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> . And finally to prove your point about people thinking of the R as just another Volvo, I had our computer vendors techie telling me last week that the R is not a performance car, Volvo do not make performance cars!!! (He even ended it by saying that his 1.6 VW Golf will keep up with any R we wish to chuck at him as the car is to heavy and built purely for comfort <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> ....................dont worry............I didnt even waste the gas on starting the R up)
