    A mate of mine has just taken delivery of a new Volvo S60R. I suspect I may need a crash helmet?

    Will let you lot know how it goes later tonight... if I survive... :)

    Report back. Wow!

    Still alive!

    Awesome car!

    It is apparently a limited edition version, painted in metallic blue with a dark leather interior. They were brought out for the Volvo round the world yacht race? There are only 2 of this spec in South Africa and only 100 world wide.

    Now I know what the old rally quattro's must have felt like.

    220kw 500nm or close to those figures, with 4 wheel drive. It has 3 suspension settings, comfort (alias teeth rattler), sport (alias the bone jarrer), and advanced (alias try me if you have your life insurance signed up a body bag in the boot and a kidney belt attached...and might I suggest a crash helmet...sir)

    His one is a 6 speed manual, not sure if you get it in auto?

    It is a 2.5 5 cylinder with constantly variable valve timing and around a 1.6bar boost on the turbo.

    Went in it again yesterday. Only criticism I have is a bit of turbo lag under 2000rpm. of course once you're past that mark it's whoooopy /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif dooo all the way to 6800rpm... :)

    I noticed the leather on this one is a very dark blue rather than black. Also the instruments have a blue effect on them. Is that standard on all R models or just on this limited edition version?
