2002 Volvo C70 HT 2dr Coupe (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)
Very reliable, as Volvos are known for, but exceedingly pleasureable to drive when compared to other sport cars. My C is also very roomy, especially compared to the Jag I was thinking of buying. Lots of shoulder room and very comfortable. For the same price, one must squeeze themselves into a BMW or Benz of lesser beauty, performance, and comfort.
The elegance of the design is my most favorite feature. It is refined, muscular, but intelligent in appearance. The 17" tires and rims contribute to the muscular appearance and hold her tightly to the road.
Add an even more powerful version of the 240 hp engine. Upgrades are easily obtainable (IPD is the main supplier) giving her 300hp with just two or three external accessories. There is also a slight turbo lag that I belive is factored in to the 0-60 time.
