Volvo announces pricing for XC90 Sport

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.
