Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: Swedish Sleeper

Everyone loves a sleeper. This 1996 Volvo 850R Turbo encompasses that image. From the outside it looks like another boxy Swedish family hauler. But that “R” after the numbers means that it came with the 240-horsepower turbocharged engine that could achieve a 0-60 time around six seconds. Not bad. Neither is the asking price for this particular example. The car looks extremely clean and is advertised for $4500 in Cape Coral, Florida.
