    Volvo S60 - Turbo'd I6 - 300hp/325tq

    While the car looks like Click here to enlarge , this commercial was actually pretty good marketing.



    So much so I decided to dig up some info...

    3.0L Inline 6 turbocharged - 300hp, 325tq....~37k

    Click here to enlarge Specs look good, but price is a bit high...but what caught my eye was this:



    • Drive type: all wheel drive
    • Mechanical center differential
    • Transmission: 6-speed shiftable automatic
    • Center limited slip differential

    comes with an LSD!

    Thoughts? I wouldn't say it's a bad looking car...just not a very good one...

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
