With collaboration from Paul NLC, PM3DM is proud to present you with amazing Volvo S40 BTCC.
This time with detailed cockpit ! Paul has done a really great job on this one, and I'm glad we can finally share it with the rest of you.

Work in progress !!! still quite a lot of things to be improved
Doesn't come with interior glass, which is important for RainFX
Wiper animation missing
Sounds need a bit of rebalancing, to match our other cars bit more closely
Physics is currently based on some evolution of the physics from Primera ( but not the physics that's been released , so it should feel different )

As will be the case on all our cars from now on, CSP will be required to run this, we are using more and more features from CSP, including some physics updates, which means that car will be crashing in vanilla AC ( not sure if Volvo already got some of this though, so you might be lucky for some time)

LODs are not yet made for this car, will come later on

brilliant mod
Nice liftoff oversteer.
loving it!!!!
Car looks amazing but the first thing i noticed is that the dash view which i drive in is set to the right hand side of the car, llok forwar to driving it when this issue is sorted, apart from that it looks to be of top quality as usual

it's already updated, as well as bonnet view, but will be released with new update, which might take a while
You've done it again m8, excellent work, thanks for sharing
There was a Volvo dealership near my parents' house and they had a mocked-up version of the S40 in Rickard Rydell's livery. I used to stare at it in amazement.

Now I can drive it at Silverstone, Thruxton, Oulton, Knockhill, Brands...

You've made a 30-year old man feel like a little kid again. Thank you so much.
Just phenomenal........
In early 80's working in foreign car parts retail/wholesale distributor I happened upon an article about the Volvo 750 GLE Turbo wagon that stunned me a bit...... I then owned a '66 122S and a '72 142S, and coveted the 750 GLE........ it was deemed the fastest car in the world "out of the showroom" with a top speed of 230 mph and cruising speed of 180...... at the time cruising speed was defined as 1:1 unity in engine and transmission rpm's.
I've been hoping for a Volvo to appear in the "circuit" and so much appreciate this gem.
Be well all.
Yoooo My man excellent work dude another epic car into the collection.
Thank you for your hard work! Its dedicated mods like this that keep AC alive and well! Amazing car!
Takes me back in time! Probably the best car mod I've ever tried in AC.
Outstanding!
Yes, very nice. Thank you! You gotta love a nice Volvo =)
amazing work! congratulations. I was waiting for this a long time.
I don´t now how real are physics but it´s so funny to drive !! Once again, excelent job from @pm3dm
Had a blast in a quick 10 lap race at Brands, wow!
As per all of this team's Super Touring mods, it's absolutely excellent.

Plays very nicely with the Primera and the BMW, and produces some excellent racing. I adore Volvo Touring Cars, and the sound of that 5 cylinder is always a hit.

I always look forward to seeing which cars some next - it's the duality of "I want them all now" but also realising how much love, care, and effort goes into these mods which means I'm perfectly happy to wait - as these cars are always worth the hard drive space!
Like the Primera and the 320 this car drives beatufully, the details in the model are amazing and probably the best of the three (well, leaving out bmw's cockpit ;-P ).

I'm having a little graphic bug in VR as someone else already reported, there are some reflections on the lower side of the sun visor on the windshield, it also "doubles"the rear view mirror (but it's shaded, like a reflection as said), here you can find some screenshot of the bug: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1K6M_gA36ihZeNg7MA9GrZc7fmgAdLYUg?usp=sharing

Can't wait to see the full pack of cars!!
Amazing!
OUTSTANDING!! This as well as the Nissan Primers are two of the genuinely most enjoyable cars I've ever driven out of the box in AC. I really hope Patrik is also working on the 1999 BTCC Mondeo, Laguna and Honda, as this will be one of the absolute BEST mods for AC!
Fantastic, an absolute joy to drive!
