I live in Sweden, the origin of both these cars and here there are a few modells of the S70 as follows. 2.0 126 hp 2.5 144 hp GLT 170 hp 2.5T 193 hp T5 240 hp 2.5D 140 hp Bi-fuel 144 hp > > This is the low pressure turbo and it produces 190 hp.

The 193 hp 2.5T make 0-100 (km/h) in 7.8 according to Volvo and the T5 with 240 hp makes it in 7.0, also according to Volvo, so I wonder where 6.7 comes from. > This is much faster than the > 9-5 numbers you posted. I believe the 170hp and 9.3 second numbers you > posted were for the base S70. They are definitely not for the GLT which > anybody who has driven one can tell you. I have driven both the GLT (170hp) and 2.5T (193) and both are fine but not near 6.7 seconds. > > > -rdo > russell.ollienopsamnet >
