Shooting brake, sport wagon, two-door estate, avant, there are many names for today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Lancia HPE. Of course, the most common form of address for the spawn of Fiat's up-scale division is %$*@#-ing car!
Italy, being a Mediterranean nation, enjoys a temperate climate and a general lack of large herbivores acting as road hazards. Contrastingly, Sweden's proximity to the Arctic Circle and prolific moose population make the roads of that northern nation treacherous. That's a potential reason why Sweden's largest car maker has embraced safety as its primary raison d'tere, as staying safe on Nordic roads means you'll live to spend your vacations in places like Italy. Yesterday's V8 Volvo 240 represented an attempt to temper the car maker's safety reputation by injecting a healthy dose of good ol' American excess under its hood. That seemed to be all it took, as 55% of you found it Volvorgasmic, and by extension, Nice Priced. That was even despite sporting tail lamps that made its ass look like, well. . . ass.
