MVS Contributor j-dawg: The Volvo BTCC wagons from the ’90s are some of the more memorable cars out of the last few decades of racing. Thought I’d link to a pretty basic article on it just posted to one of my favorite sites, Speedhunters. It’s nothing new, but it’s nice to see the car in the spotlight.

The engine was tilted way back and the driveshaft for right side passed under intake. Custom gearbox of course. Low center of mass and better weight distribution. HUGE individual throttles with stacks. Gorgeous hardware. The kind BIG money buys. TWR put on a show at a Volvo event at Circuit Zolder in 99 and had a couple of cars and did some hot laps for us. No rides in the BTCC cars but we did get rides by Volvo drivers in S40s (the 4 cylinder ones), only they did a parking lot course lap up on two wheels.
