Cant wait for the purists whining how its wheels are too big or just whining as got butthurt about an old Volvo so why not........
BTW , its electric so will be shit anyway.
An electric version would be the only way to get me to buy one. Not that I can afford one and they're too underpowered stock.
If it has a Polerstar 2 electric package inside it won't be slow!
Na it's an oil burner with a big turbo
I'd have one.
I don't know how I feel about an 1800 that isn't dog slow.
Looks to me like the author of that piece is pretty clueless, especially about Group A. There's no picture of the product plate of the subject car either - if S02476 isn't on that plate, it's not a special.
Can't wait till the Mark Petch / Björn Ohlson book on the 240T Group A cars is published, as it will clear up the myths.
Agree, and it's an auto, I would've thought that back in those days a serious Group A homogation special they would all be manuals, if for no other reason that they could be converted into race cars.
The Getrag 5 speed box with 1:1 5th was an homologated item, so transmissions weren't a critical sporting evolution option. As you may remember, Holden VK V8 wagons were included as part of the necessary 5,000 models needed to qualify the VK for Group A.
Anyway, here is a product plate with the numbers to look for.
