1996 Volvo 850 Platinum Limited Edition Turbo 4dr Sedan


Volvo got it right when they built the 1996 volvo 850 turbo platium edition. Comfort, reliability, safety and passenger experience are all awesome. The engine is so good that Volvo is putting it in its new 2008 C30--rock-solid engineering. Don't know why Volvo didn't put the T-5 (with 218 horses) in the S80 or why didn't they put the R S-60 engine in the S80. All I know is when Volvo built the 850 Turbo they built a legend. The 1996 850 R are still selling for a lot of money.
