i think people get a massive shock when i blow them away in my volvo, not really come up against anything on the road that has kept up to be honest not with 353lb ft torque and 311bhp @1.3 bar boost can run at 1.5 bar if i wanted. midrange acceleration is awesome on these motors 60-100 in 6 secs
What are the standard figures? What's the power to weight ratio as well?
I dont want to start a "fight" but if you cant find anything faster than 311bhp (regardless of torque) you havnt been looking much

Do those Volvos go around corners well. As mine had stupid torque steer?
