I drove one last week. My impression was that my modified (340 hp +-) 92
was faster. Maybe it is just smoother, specs say 5.4 0-60, that is what
mine does according to g-tech.
The car is quire nice, good power, smooth, big brakes. Ergonomics are a bit
funny, the steering wheel sits very low, even when tilted up, almost hits my
legs and I am not a big person. The s-car has more features, the s60r has a
trunk pass-through that is small and has no ski bag. The seats are nice,
almost on par with the s-car. Less rear seat room. No heated seats in the
rear. The dash has blue and silver instruments, a bit tacky in my opinion.
The trunk is longer, but not as wide. The engine is mounted transversely
and is packed in there pretty good. The intake plumbing had a nice silver
finish, but looked kind on small and convoluted. The intake is on the
firewall side. I could not see the turbo or intercooler.
The one I drove was butt ugly in my opinion. Light metallic green with
baseball glove leather (top of the line option). THe syling is good for a
volvo, but I don't care for the playdough factory rear quarters.
I will wait till my car is used up before considering one. I suspect the
tuners will be able to coax a good bit more power out of the engine and the
prices for used ones will be dropped down by then.
My two cents.
