Though the new Polestar models are out to change perception, there aren't a lot of Volvos from the company's recent past that could really drum up any excitement whatsoever. But the 850 T-5R sought to change that. With a 2.3-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine producing 247 horsepower, the T-5R could run to 60 in as little as 5.8 seconds. Which may not seem that fast by today's standards, but in the mid-90s that made the hot-rod Volvo
one of the fastest family haulers out there.
