1995 Volvo 850 T5R Turbo 4dr Sedan


Bought my t5-r in a snow storm . The seller sold it to me dirt cheap (only $1500). I've added suspension springs and sway bars. I've also upgraded the ecu and exhaust and turbo. This car eats up r/t chargers and most f-bodied V-8 GM cars. Very roomy but it drives so solid. I never expected this out of a Volvo. Fuel economy is good but not o.k. Pretty easy to work on if your not afraid to d.i.y. And to top it all off its a rare car. I love the feeling of smoking a STI or charger and the look on the faces. Yeah, you just got torched by a Volvo.

Best Features

T-5 turbo engine. Overall vehicle dynamics. Ease of maintenance. Room of the interior.

Worst Features

If your a speed nut, then by all means upgrade the turbo and exhaust. There is a lot of power that can come from the e.c.u. too. Tires and springs and shocks, and way bars can also be upgraded.
