This is a great vehicle. A forgotten future classic. It was Volvo low production hi-performance sedan. This particular car was manufactured for a half year, and the last of the 850’s. Beefed up suspension, and turbo, produced 240 HP. Trim package was also attractive with 17” Volcan wheels, wrapped with 195/35/17 low profile tires. The stiff suspension provides for roller coaster like handling. Other attributes include front and rear spoiler package, and recaro like seats wrapped in Alcatara suede and leather. Bang for the buck!!!
i bought this car after a long line of subaru sport sedans and was really not sure what to expect.. well i was blown away at the power and the handling... this car's performance is an unparalleled experience.. great drive
gotta love that turbo.. the wheels are a great look for this turbo brick!!!!
definately needs a 5 or 6 speed!! sucks down the fuel like a v8...other than that nothing to complain about....
I purchased this car after looking at
later year S70 AWD models. My wife
actually said "that looks like you"
when she saw it on the lot. It took
about 10 seconds to figure out this was
the right car. Unbelievable
acceleration, control, comfort and
class. Wouldn't consider driving
anything else. It really is fun when
the turbo kicks in at about 15 mph and
you leave the rest of the pack behind.
A completely wonderful car in all
aspects. Even get about 21 mpg's. Not
bad for one heck of a performance car.
Fast start, merging onto highways with
no problem. Killer leather trim, black
leather with suede inserts.
Nothing really comes to mind. Maybe a
five speed manual transmission. Naw,
that would be too much!
