I’m not gonna lie- I have no idea what this is. Near as I can tell, it’s loosely related to this concept drawing of a mid-engined Volvo S60 race car meant to compete in the Belgian Touring Car Championship- but it can’t be that. That car would have had a tick over 400 HP, while this one is packing 680.
That’s right, kids. Six-hundred and eighty horsepower. From a screaming V8. A screaming V8 bolted into an ultra lightweight, tube-framed, mid-engined, rear wheel drive Volvo S60.
This grisly beast is currently for sale at Autojunk in the Netherlands, and promises race-ready performance and plenty of on-track thrills to whoever is smart enough to snatch it up for the seemingly low price of 85,000 Euro. I promise, this Volvo race car cost a lot more to build than that!
