    nutritious meal on the road is hard to come by. Knowing how far we were behind schedule, a drive thru lunch was the only option yesterday afternoon. Needless to say, we're pretty sure it's the first time a GT-R has navigated a gut busting, house of calories like Burger King. We're happy to report that the cupholders in the center console are some of the best we've ever seen in a car with over 450 horsepower. And when we were finished, the ample door pockets held two crumpled up bags of trash without a problem despite the fact they were already bulging with beef jerky wrappers and flash card readers. Yes, the GT-R really can do it all.

    Volvo to Develop Green Racing Car

    by silksmen (3/31/08) 2,712 views

    Volvo Car Corporation will develop a completely new racing car in 2008 and continue its work with bioethanol (E85) and Green Racing in the STCC (Swedish Touring Car Championship). The modern green racing car is based on the Volvo C30, the model that most clearly demonstrates Volvo's environmental technology on the market, with versions such as the Flexifuel and the upcoming 1.6D Efficiency. The latter has an average fuel consumption of 0.45 litres per 10 km (52 mpg-US/62 mpg-UK) and CO2 emissions under 120 grams per kilometre. Development of the new racing car will be done jointly by Volvo Cars and Polestar Racing.
