It was ALWAYS a Volvo that was blocking the road in front when you wanted to overtake. It wasnt so much that the car was crap, it was that their drivers were crap.

As long as we don't have a laptime of a better maintained car, why not keep at least what we already have? It's not like it was missing a wheel or engine was running on two cylinders.

Dude i added this cae Because it has a laptime, i wouldnt add a car unless it has a laptime, or its pure awesomensss is so great it will ruin your computer, and i got those stats from AutoCar W/E October 16 1982, and back in its time it wasnt bad, but just think of it this way, if you get into a car accident, theres no safer car! and WTF is CodSwallop???

I am not sure wehere the technical specs come from. I think it was a 2.8 not 2.4. They had 2.4 diesels.

I am having a laugh. :D But honestly, I think it is a lovely classic car. It's a typical boxy Volvo of boxy Volvo era. I just feel sorry for the car being described as "pile of crap".

It's a bloody V6!!! So it is huugely fast. Probably a little faster than your 1.1 liter Civic. If I were you, I would have showed some respect!

Mate laptimes don't mean nothing in the real world only on this site.

Laptimes do matter a lot in real life. But I see your point. When you're doing your normal driving you don't stretch your car to the limit that track driving can reach to. So what matters the most are things like torque, power, ride comfort etc. But when you're in market for a sports/performance car, it will matter for you if your sportscar actually can perform as such and don't get crushed at track by a diesel van.

You want to enjoy driving your sports/performance car and much about that drive-ability, handling performance and driving enjoyment reflects on laptimes.

So if laptimes only matter on this site (as you said) then all the magazine tests, tv show tests etc where they take timed laps were actually exclusively made only for this website! Well, unfortunately that's you know it's not true. Lap time is a huge selling point for any performance oriented vehicle and it is obvious for everybody, including media and car manufacturers and sales people.
