Have been looking at a second car for a while now, one has caught my eye, hopefully once a get a new job with enough pay i can take the cally off the road to fix all the little problems.

The car that has caught my attention is a :
Volvo S70 T5 Saloon 2.3 Manual.

Unsure on the miles and think it might be an ex cop car as its white and just looks like it was.

I dont think i will be able to afford this one right now but in the future, so can someone give me the specs on one. i know they do a T4 2.0 and a T4 diesel. but im intrested in the T5 2.3.

Thanks guys i know you will help me out.

happy


Edit: Forgot to mention would be around a P or R reg.

Not sure about performance stuff, but the "T" stands for Turbo, and the 4 or 5 after relates to the number of cylinders.

I know the T5 variations are very thirsty eek and Volvo Parts aint the cheapest. Due to their weight they commonly warp brake disks and Genuine Volvo parts are the best replacement @ £140 a pair eek

Volvo S70 T5



Driving
Immense poise and stability; effective traction control system; very responsive; body control is good even near the limits, but at the expense of a firm ride; very confident roadholding, especially AWD.
Performance
Quick acceleration and good mid-range muscle; 2.5 20v is fast enough if you donít fancy a turbo; T5 and R cars are exciting but tend to eat tyres.

Check out a more full review here

Hope this helps

Heres something for you then, the NEW Focus ST is the same engine found in the T5 220BHP S40, so it has 5 cylinders and a turbo smile

Yep your right dazza i seem to remember them saying that on top gear.

Not stealing the lime light from the new ST but....

i want info on a 2.3 T5

I do like the 2.5 but i think insurance would pull my pants down on that one.

0-60 in 6.4 not to bad, and a quater mile in 14.9.

Seems like quite a fast car, no wonder the police like them.

Indeed! Had a drive of a V70 2.3T5 last year, definately didn't hang about. Forgot the lights stayed on even in the off position and was wondering why i couldn't get the main beam to work! smack
