Volvo V50

Wednesday 16 September 2009
Volvo Cars introduced the Volvo V50 at the 2003 Bologna Motor Show as the station wagon version of the Volvo S40 small family car -- manufacturing both models at their facility in Ghent, Belgium. Sharing the Ford C1 platform with the European Ford Focus and the Mazda 3, the V50 features interior "theatre" lighting, a floating center stack and "Volvo Intelligent Vehicle Architecture". The V50 T5 AWD features four-wheel drive and a straight-5 2.5-litre petrol engine with a light-pressure turbocharger, valves per cylinder and a DOHC design with variable camshaft timing -- providing 220 bhp (164 kW; 223 PS) and 320 N·m (236 lb·ft) of torque. Diesel options are available in Europe, including a 2.4 Litre turbocharged D5 diesel engine which provides 180 bhp (134 kW; 182 PS) and 350 N·m (258 lb·ft) of torque.
The replica is a nice looking, good quality and low price Hongwell.
