Friend wants to challenge me in his dads Volvo S80 T5
 
What are the stats on this car guys. HP Torque 0-60 times and 1/4 mile times. Do you think I stand a chance ??

///MsAniTy 11-10-2003 07:41 PM

i dunno but i seen a volvo the other day with a ncie bov and it was a s70 t5 i think n it drove like it had nothin to lose so i think it would rip u since we both have the same car.

greekthang 11-10-2003 07:44 PM

Here's some specs
 
Model S80 T6
Layout Fwd Front-engined, Fwd
Engine Inline-6, dohc, 4v/cyl, twin-turbo.
Capacity 2783 c.c.
Power 272 hp
Torque 280 lbft
Transmission 4A 4-speed semi-auto
Suspensions F: strut / R: multi-link
Tyres 225 / 55 R16
Weight 1596 kg
Top speed 155 mph (claimed)
0-60 mph 6.7 sec*
0-100 mph17.8 sec*

It's a heavier car compared to the BMW.
Off the line, it could be close but once the speeds pick up, you can't argue with 272 hp/ 280lbft.

Volvo
0-60: 6.6 Transmission: Automatic
1/4 Mile: 14.9
1/4 Speed: 95

it is drivers race

Yup, it all comes down to your driving, and if he power-brakes on launch or not. If he doesn't the time to get the turbos spooling will add .5 to his 0-60.

HAHAHA sure pal.
It should be fun. The 18 inch rims are off and now I have the snows on so that should help my acceleration a bit.

DavidM5 11-10-2003 11:18 PM

Snows??!!!
Watch out for lack of traction!!
I know that in the M5 on snows, forget about flooring the gas pedal because I get wheelspin in the first 3 gears.
I once 'raced' an Audi TT but because of lack of traction on the dry but cold pavement was killed in the lower gears.
Mind you once I got into 3rd at 7000rpm it was over for the Audi!

Mystikal 11-11-2003 01:15 AM

Nah, 206lb-ft isn't enough to overcome decent winter tires in the dry.

bmwm5lover 11-11-2003 01:22 AM

Volvo will win!:D

Understood but pal your comparing a M5 to a 328. HAHA that is no comparison what so ever. I do feel alot lighter through 1st 2nd and 3rd gear.

swizzbizz 11-11-2003 02:38 PM

Yeah, those T5's are pretty fast, but their Turbo is too small. They can't really keep the power up. I can follow them without spraying. I loose a couple of car lengths at first but then it's like the T5 runs out of power and I start catching up again. I don't know why that is though, the Turbo thing is just a guess...

SUPERCHARGED 11-12-2003 06:21 PM

make sure you get a good launch. and you should beat him.

iv race a few of those before in my 328is.
he might come close in 2nd and 3rd gear. but not enough to pass you.

good luck,

tell us what happend

For sure pal. I have found my perfect launching technic and it usually works well. I have raced a Volve turbo before and I was catching him bit by bit when I was behind him. He told me he have 230.000km on his car and that it was losing compression. figures he would say something cuz he would have lost. HAHAHA
