A V8 in a Volvo? That's just crazy talk!

Volvos have been changing over time, but it's a slow change. John Davis says they take their 'Swede' time, which is enough to make everyone in a 12 mile radius audibly cringe.

Let me just say, that the Yamaha V8 in the XC90 seems like a 'Swede' engine, and the XC90 looks really 'Swede' as well.

And if you've ever wanted to see an XC90 take on a slalom, well, this video is the right thing to watch. I mean, just look at that 'Swede' body roll!
