Hoon of the Weekend: More on the Smoking Volvo 740

The Swedish nuts at Hedberg and Streetpower released another video of their batshit Volvo 740 in action. They've apparently tweaked 530 horepower and 527 ft-lbs of torque out of this particular brick, which we first featured back in the early days of Jalopnik hoonage. They're not bad behind the wheel, either.

I remember years ago a fella here in the Pacific Northwest named John Lane who had a Volvo 262 with a turbo'd V6 under the hood. Ran it in rally events, although he mostly broke driveline components. Why? Because it was pushing out better than 600hp, and 504 ft/lbs of torque — at the rear wheels. Quite entertaining.

If you do a google search for "Fire Breathing Monster" and "John Lane" you can get some interesting accounts, plus a picture or two.
