2012 Volvo S60 T5: Objects in Mirror Are (much) Closer Than They Appear
August 11, 2011
Eight-hundred sixty-two and seven-tenths miles later, I arrived home in our long-term 2012 Volvo S60 T5. At least one of you noticed the string of 2012 Volvo S60 R-Design cars on the track in my last post. That was the reason I drove our long-termer S60 T5 up to Napa and later Thunderhill Raceway Park. Click through to see more photos and pricing of the forthcoming S60 R-Design...
and for the less artsy... The 2012 Volvo S60 R-Design has revised front/rear bodywork, R-Design-specific interior, reprogrammed ECU giving orders to the 3.0L turbo-six (320hp and 354 lb-ft) that drives all four wheels, monotube dampers, and so on. Look for a First Drive coming soon.
Base price of for the 2012 S60 R-Design will be $43,375 (including D&D and 5-years/50,000-miles free scheduled maintenance and parts--like brake pads, etc.). The first batches are being shipped to dealers at this very moment and the S60 R-Design will be available in red, black, silver, or white.
I'll share some notes and snap shots of the drive home shortly.
