When most people think of a Volvo, they think of a safe, reliable car that is perfect for long family trips. But what if you took that same Volvo and turned it into a high-performance machine? That’s exactly what was done by the current owner of this restored and modified 1996 Volvo 940 Wagon. With numerous performance and visual upgrades, this wagon is now capable of sending over 500HP to the rear wheels and sending it sideways at the local race tracks.
Suspension & Stance
In order to eliminate the wheel gap and chieve that low ground-hugging stance the owner decided to lower the car with a help of air suspension. It allowed him to adjust the right height to on the go and protect the body an the undercarriage while cruising.
It’s one of the last rear-wheel-drive Volvo models and it drifts like a champion thanks to the powerful 500HP turbo engine. The factory 4 cylinder engine was enhanced with a performance turbocharger, Atomic air intake, intercooler and performance exhaust.
