I just found a one of a kind volvo,
It is a 850 turbo with... get this a chassis tuned by Lotus!
I can't find any info anywhere on the web. If anyone knows where I can find info please let me know.
I do know this much about the car. The chassis is from the factory it is not aftermarket. If you would like to photos of this car please let me know.

That would be pretty interesting. Supposedly 850s have a really unbalanced chassis.

I suspect in this case they are aftermarket stickers like you can get on ebay.

BUT

Volvo did have an alliance with Lotus. Lotus developed the suspesion for the first front wheel drive Volvo. I am not sure if you got the 480 model back in the 80's.

Volvo did race their 850 in the British Touring Car Chanmpionship. Check out..

Oh by the way this is 1993.
I think the Lotus stickers are from the factory.

Anyway I guess Volvo consult Lotus or something as they were involved together back in the 80's.

Let me catch you up. Nothing was tuned by Lotus, it's a sticker you can buy and put on yourself. It's not a turbo at all, again, another sticker put on. A trim line denotes which version of the car you bought (GLT, SE, T5, T5-R, R) are just a few examples of common Volvo trim lines. $1500, I couldn't tell you without more info on the car.
