This first one’s not new, but it seems Abbott Racing have got the renovators in for a bit of a clean up.
And for the first time ever, we have a site that looks better in Internet Explorer than it does in Firefox, where it doesn’t seem to be stacking up properly.
Abbott’s one of my favourite dreamtime sites, where I waste plenty of precious time imagining all the things I’d love to do to my Viggen if I had a) the money, and b) the car on the road.
The new site’s got all the same old stuff, it’s just quite a bit easier to navigate now.
I can’t believe that I haven’t seen this site before: Swedespeed
Oh, wait a minute…..it’s full of Volvos.
OK. I can believe it.
Worthwhile reading if you like the other side.
And while we’re talking Volvos, I’ve been looking with great interest at the Volvo C30 ever since it came out. It certainly is an interesting looking Swedish car and one can’t help but wonder what the Saab 9-1 will be like in what must be just a little bit of Swedish competition.
Hopefully, though, Saab will make their smaller car a lot better balanced. While I was in Sweden earlier this year I spoke with my mate Par Brandt from Auto Motor and Sport, and he commented that the car was rather tail happy.
This seems to have been confirmed during some testing here in Australia, where Wheels Magazine found out the following in assessing the car for a recent Car of The Year type award:
Lack of ESP effectively struck the C30’s chances a fatal blow, especially in light of the base car spinning out altogether, during the double lane- change test.
