Yep - the 850 Turbo (or T-5, same thing) is 222hp and around 3250 lbs,
so there's a whole lot of forward motion (and some sideways of the front
end) when you push the loud pedal.

The S/V70 (the updated-for-97-850 sedan and wagon, respectively) has 236
hp and weighs 3248 lbs in wagon form. A whole lot quicker than my 91
200q and ultimately faster too. Of course, I wouldn't want to try to
match my 200q in the snow (or barely even in the wet).

850t must be way better than a 740t. Drove a brand new 740t from the Bay
area to L.A. a few years back and it was Slooooow. Plus the steering was
like a '70's american car. Otherwise it was fine. The Kawi sounds fun
