Volvo 850 T5 R
Volvo was always known for its boxy cars and the ability to surprise drivers with unexpected performance. And the 850 T5 R was exactly that. It was a boxy car, available as sedan or wagon, but with a powerful engine. Underneath the body, there was a 2.3-liter turbocharged five-cylinder that pumped out 250 HP. Although it isn’t much by today’s standards, it was a lofty number for the mid-90s. In fact, it gave the 850 R a respectable 0 to 60 mph time of 6.5 seconds.
