Volkswagen Scirocco Ice Racer – Click above to watch video after the jump

Despite Volvo's rather staid image as a maker of, well, staid cars, not all Swedes are obsessed with safety and practicality. These particular Swedes are into racing 627-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Volkswagen Scirocco hatchbacks. On ice. I'll see your sleepy Volvo and raise you automotive lunacy.

Besides the horsepower figure and the make and model, we don't know much about this car. Obviously, it's faster than scalded cat and that can make for some seriously sketchy moments when combined with ice, but that's about all we know.

Click past the jump for video of the insanity.

      The morning coffee run and dropping the kids off at school would be so much more fun, that I would have to take the rest of the day off and keep on driving!

      Also, maybe some views OUTSIDE the car, Sweden. Yah yah?

      I bet that motor in my CC would liven things up a bit.

      Looks like the turbo has more displacement than the engine....HUGE

      I'd seriously rather have a Volvo C30 Polestar. I dare you call that staid. And even if you did, I honestly wouldn't care.
