Volvo S60R

I went to a Volvo test drive at Hanscome AFB last July and the Turbo Volvos
had way too much lag until 30mph when they woke up. My slow 90 100Q could
take them to 30 easy. The steering was compairable to a Buick with no road
feel what so ever. The test cars were t40's, t50's and the t60 only autos,
but I could see a manual being fun. The most fun part of the whole event was
a short trip around a specially prepared track in a t40 with a manual tranny
with a Volvo test driver drifting through every corner at 70.

90 100Q
