300 Horse Volvo C30

Remember when all you Blue Oval fan boys pitched a fit when the new Focus RS wouldn’t come with all wheel drive? Get ready to start complaining again. Word on the Web is that Volvo is working on a 300 horsepower version of its C30 powered by, you guessed it, the same motor launching the RS to hoony glory. So what’s the difference between the two? Besides the fact that the C30 looks like it should constantly be downloading Radiohead, this here Volvol comes with all four tires kicking. That’s right. While the beloved burn victim RS gets to be a castrated front driver, the Volvo gets all-wheel drive. Don’t feel too bad, though. This is just another fantastic hatch we’ll never see stateside. Eternal sigh… [Autoblog]
