    Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    Bad News for all Cayenne drivers...

    I read in the news, that there will be built a XC90 with a V8 engine with 650 HP and from 0-100 in under 5 seconds, top speed over 300 km/h.

    I will cost about 100'000 Euro

    PUV Volvo

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    That would be pretty stupid. Who is going to buy a 650HP Volvo SUV (puv)?? It looks pretty cool though..

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    PUV? Performance Utility Vehicle?

    PUV = Power Utility Vehicle

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    This is how gossip travels the internet...

    The car on the picture incl. the specs is a Volvo made as a showcar (not even a prototype) for the SEMA in the US.

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    And if is like my former "old" V70R AWD,this PUV will have BIG brake problems..

    ciaociao

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    but do you know how much power that car has??

    If it's a showcar it's ready to drive...so there should be some specs about the engine??



    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    The do show the engine, right?

    Relax: the new Cayenne Turbo "killer" comes from Mercedes end of next year or latest beginning of 2006.
    And a little birdie told me that BMW has also something around 500 HP in the planning for the new X5, including a "monster" Diesel engine with two turbo chargers and minimum 320 HP.

    There is nothing to be relaxed.. if BMW and Mercedes are finding something to kill the Cayenne..

    Maybe Porsche will make the Powerkit for the powerkit + 50HP again..

    hahahaha

    Ciao

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    But Darius, it is the best looking volvo I have ever seen before?

    It's not bad, better than a lexus rx300 or an ml230

    Thanks for the pics.

    Don't forget about the Ford connection.

    The v8 for the new XC90 is said to be a reworked version of the Ford designed v8 for the old Taurus SHO. It is built in Japan by Yamaha and shipped to Sweden for install.

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    I thought that Yamaha SHO motor was a V6.

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    Good point. I thought the same thing and I won't have picked up on the difference if I hadn't had a buddy with one years back.

    There was a 3.0l v6 and later a 3.4L v8 that could be had.

    C&D has the reworked version for the XC90 as a 4.4L and putting out 311hp.

    Your guess is as good as mine how they are squeezing anything bigger in a bay designed for a transverse mounted 5/6 cylinder and bumping it up to 650hp for this monster.

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    You're right. I just did a little research and found the 3.0 V6 was introduced in 1989 and the redesign with the 3.4 V8 was in 1996. Neither had much power, really. Not compared to all the hoopla. The V6 had 220 hp and the V8 had 235. I recall test driving the 3.0 and being underwhelmed. Pretty motors though.

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    At next 800 HP for a Ford Fiesta?

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    i think they did something with turbos, look at the cooler into the frontbumper...it looks like an intercooler or something like that...

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    The XC90 "base" V8 doesn't have a turbo. It is a 4.4 L with 315 hp and 325 pound-feet of torque.
    Don't think the PUV will make producton. It looks cool tho!

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    Very, very unlikely. Goes completely against Volvo's 'niche' as the safety conveyance of choice. I do not believe they will ever build anything like this.

    Yeah, the "Ford connection" is why Astons are such pieces of crap, right?

    The car pictured is one that Volvo was just having some fun with. They're coming out soon with a V8 XC90 though. Don't be surprised to see Volvo offer up a tuned version like they do many of their cars. It's gotta be more reliable than the Cayenne - maybe it's the "Ford connection".

    Re: Volvo PUV with 650 HP !!!

    Did a quick and dirty PS job - some subtle changes which I think make the car look even better.

    What do you guys think?
