Volvo 850 R BTCC ex Rydell on track
During the last edition of the Mugello Motor Fest has made its
appearance this beautiful and ex Rickard Rydell official Volvo 850 R BTCC.
A rarity and an unexpected surprise to see run the car in the racing cars
time sessions. In the hands of Rydell the Volvo 850 R won the English
Touring car championship in 1998 and in 1995 the driver made 13 pole
position in 24 races!
Strangely, the season of the 850 series began in collaboration with TWR in
1994 using the station-wagon variant that behaved fairly well. Since 1995,
it passed to employ a sedan with good results until it reaches the BTCC
title in 1998. The car is equipped with a 5-cylinder 2000 CC with more than
290 hp and 6-speed sequential gearbox. As you can see extensive use of
carbon fiber inside and pneumatic system for lifting.
Durante l'ultima edizione del Mugello motor Fest ha fatto la sua comparsa
questa splendida Volvo 850 R BTCC ex Rickard Rydell, una vera rarità ed
un'inaspettata sorpresa vederla girare nei turni dedicate alle auto da
corsa. Auto ex ufficiale, in mano a Rydell la Volvo 850 R ha vinto nel 1998
il campionato inglese turismo e nella stagione 1995 partì dalla pole su 24
gare! Stranamente la stagione agonistica della serie 850 iniziò grazie
alla collaborazione con la TWR nel 1994 utilizzando la variante
station-wagon che si comportò discretamente bene. Dal 1995 si passò ad
impiegare la versione berlina con buoni risultati fino al raggiungimento
titolo BTCC appunto nel 1998. L'auto è dotata del 5 cilindri di 2.000 CC
portato ad oltre 290 CV e cambio sequenziale a 6 marce. Come potete vedere

New Volvo V40 2012 - Active TFT Display at instrument cluster

all info about classic Volvos! If you need any parts manuals, hints and
tips or service manuals you can view them at Volvotips.com. We're still
developing the website so stay tuned for extra info about your favorite
This video (made by Volvo) shows how the new customizable Active TFT
crystal display in the instrument cluster of the new 2012 Volvo V40 works.
The dash and interior of the new Volvo V40 are really nice and points out
the "Design around you"-concept perfectly. It's very easy to customize the
instrument cluster to the color you want and it's a very cool feature in my
opinion. The 3 standard modes (or better said: themes) are: Elegance
(brownish), Eco (blue/green) and Performance (red). Note: the customizable
Active TFT display is an option for a Volvo V40 and doesn't become as a
standard so you'll have to buy it as an accessory. On the more luxurious
models it's already installed. The new Volvo V40 is for sale at the local
dealer since August 2012 and has already Modelyear 2013.
