Volvo S80 V8 AWD

The 2007 Volvo S80 V8 AWD is an extremely luxurious car model, a fact proved by the unveiled pictures. Entering the car market with a world-class safety, smooth driving properties, a high level of comfort as well as a dynamic design language, the new S80 smartly brings a real challenge to the class leaders. It will definitely attract a lot of demanding car buyers thanks to its V8 engine which combines with four-wheel drive. Fredrik Arp, President and CEO of Volvo Cars, stated that the all new S80 was a very special car, featuring clean and elegant lines together with an intelligent functionality in which every detail had been designed with the user's well-being in mind. The combination between technology and aesthetics made in an inviting and intelligent way, brings the Scandinavian Luxury a more human and diferent prestige, basing its appeal on being expensive, excluding and elitist. The evolutionary design of the new S80 boasts new shapes and refined materials for the interior, smoothly blending with colors. One of the cleanest V8s in the market powers the second-generation S80, deivering an impressive power output of 315 HP and 440 Nm of torque. However, an entirely new naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine was introduced with the S80, a 3.2-liter displacement which produces 238 HP and 320 Nm of peak torque, paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The S80 will be available with All-Wheel drive, but it can also combine with the active Four-Chassis, thus better suiting the current driving conditions. The world-class active safety features include an Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning and Brake Support. The company's executives expect 70 percent of the average volume of 50,000 cars a year to be purchased by customers who do not drive a Volvo today.
