The Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept, called Four-C, employs seven electronic sensors to collect data on the movement of the car, adjusting shock valve damping based on driving style and road conditions. 300 hp and 295 ft/lbs of torque Under the hood of the Volvo S60R is a turbocharged 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder engine, which provides 300 hp and 295 ft/lbs of torque at 2,100 rpm, propelling the car to 155 mph (electronically limited). Two transmissions will be offered: an all-new compact 6-speed manual gearbox, developed by Volvo Cars, and a 5-speed Geartonic semiautomatic, which allows full automatic or manual gear selection. Anti-lock brakes, traction control and Volvo's Dynamic Stability Control System (DSTC) are all standard on the S60R. Volvo claims the S60R represents the next level of active and passive safety in a performance vehicle. The Volvo S60R will debut at the Paris Motor Show on September 26, 2002. A wagon version, the Volvo V70R based on the same technology, will be unveiled at the same time. Scheduled to start production in early 2003, the S60R will be built at Volvo's factory in Ghent, Belgium. The V70R will be built at the Torslanda plant in Sweden. Both models will be limited production.
