Volvo has announced the retail price of its new XC90 Sport (which made its debut back in July), and the cover charge you'll have to pay the doorman is $49,300 ($49,995 when you factor in the destination charges). That's a lot of cabbage -- $2,875 more than the standard XC90 V8 AWD's starting price -- so what do you get?

Well, the 311-hp Yamaha V8 is there to provide the motivation. In addition to that, you get your choice of a model-specific red or silver paint color, plus matte-finish trim, 19" wheels, a slightly ritzier interior, roof rack delete and a sport-tuned suspension. You can also tack on Volvo's Technology Package (cost not provided), which adds bi-xenon lights, an upgraded audio system, and Sirius satellite radio.

Does it look good? Sure it does. $50,000 good? That's for you to decide.
