THIS WAGON CHALLENGES EVERY REASON FOR NOT OWNING A WAGON.

Every year, the Sports Car Club of America holds a series of races with a class dedicated to sedans.

But in '86, Volvo gave the race a larger dimension: the 740 Turbo Wagon. The first wagon to ever compete in this SCCA series.

The results? In the first five races, the 740 recorded the fastest qualifying times twice. And led one endurance race for five out of six hours.

More important, though, is that the 740 finished every race it started. A statement some of the performance sedans can't lay claim to.

And one that may make the 740 Turbo Wagon something unique among performance cars.

The get-up-and-go that gets you where you're going.

The interior of this Volvo 760 GLE is designed with that responsibility in mind.

Every aspect of the car's interior - from the shape of the knobs and placement of the controls to the adjustable lumbar support in the orthopedically-contoured bucket seats - is designed to make the driver and the machine one.

Something that's apparent when you test drive a 700 Series Volvo.

And discover how much performance a car can get out of you.
