    Just watched a thing on speedvision.. It makes 295 lb-ft of torque.. at 1900 rpms?!?! This is a tiny engine. 2.5 litres. 5 cyls. HUGE turbo and virtually no lag. two intercoolers also. Should do 0-60 in 5.5 seconds.

    How in the hell did they make such a small motor with all that torque at 1900 rpms? I do not understand

    It also has all sorts of crazy electronics and vehicle dynamic skid control, 3 way adjustable suspension settings ( Comfort, sport, advanced)

    I'm impressed by this volvo.

    it an option for my upcoming car replacement purchase.... we went to the volvo dealership to check it out, i love everything except the looks and fact that its a volvo (leaning toward 04 S4 right now)

    the salesman also explaned the AWD system puts 95% power to the rear wheels whenever turning and 95% power to the front wheels whenever in a straight line.... :cool:

    Irvine, CA (July 4, 2002) - Blistering seat of the pants driving,...razor sharp handling,...exhilarating acceleration,...in a Volvo? Yes!
    Volvo's new S60R brings high-tech, horsepower and safety into a complete performance sedan. Who else but Volvo could provide performance without compromising the legendary safety and comfort for which the Swedish manufacturer's cars are renowned?

    First, there was Volvo's Performance Concept Car (PCC), which presented an exciting glimpse into the future of high-performance driving. And now, the future is here. The production version of the PCC, the Volvo S60R, is an intelligent, high-performance car featuring an adaptive active chassis, a 300-horsepower engine, Servotronic Steering, powerful Brembo brakes, and a Haldex electronically controlled all-wheel-drive.


    Redefining the Concept of a Performance Car

    Highlighting the versatility of the S60R's driving experience are three active chassis settings: Comfort, Sport and Advanced Sport. Being behind the wheel, "Performance On Demand" is literally at the drivers' fingertips,...the epitome of dynamic safety. This duel functionality is unlike any other sport sedan currently available.

    Comfort provides a luxurious ride without compromising the S60R's outstanding control over any road surface.

    Sport, the default suspension setting for the S60R, provides optimum performance during normal but sporty driving.

    Advanced Sport transforms the Volvo S60R into an uncompromising sports sedan, prioritizing maximum driving pleasure.


    Four-C Technology

    The Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept, aptly called Four-C, employs seven electronic sensors to collect data on the movement of the car, adjusting shock valve damping almost instantaneously, based on driving style and road conditions.

    The Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept of the Volvo S60R is one of the most advanced chassis on the market, measuring data input five hundred times per second - that's every other millisecond.

    300 hp and 295 ft/lbs of torque

    Under the hood of the Volvo S60R is a turbocharged 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder engine, which provides 300 hp and 295 ft/lbs of torque at 2,100 rpm, propelling the car to 155 mph (electronically limited). Two transmissions will be offered: an all-new compact 6-speed manual gearbox, developed by Volvo Cars, and a 5-speed Geartonic semiautomatic, which allows full automatic or manual gear selection.

    Equally up to the task of bringing all of this fun to a safe stop are the four-piston Brembo brakes with aluminum calipers to help reduce heat buildup. Anti-lock brakes, traction control and Volvo's Dynamic Stability Control System (DSTC) are all standard on the S60R.

    The high-tech S60R represents the next level of active and passive safety, in a performance vehicle.

    The Volvo S60R will debut at the Paris Motor Show on September 26, 2002. A wagon version, the Volvo V70R based on the same technology, will be unveiled at the same time.

    Scheduled to start production in early 2003, the S60R will be built at Volvo's factory in Ghent, Belgium. The V70R will be built at the Torslanda plant in Sweden. Both models will be limited production.
