I expected that. When you see a drag race where a POS lines up next to an exotic you know there is a really mean build that went into that POS.

Volvo I6 24V, with big turbo, probably came out of a 960. Apparently it has 600 hp and was built as a SEMA show car.

Are you talking about the silver tank in the back, I think that's the fuel tank, besides it's Sweden, it doesn't get hot in Sweden very often.
