Vehicle Description
A very rare and original Volvo 850R. Beautiful colour combination and now an extremely collectable model. EU specification. Hand sourced and tested direct from Japan, buy our team. Sold as new by Volvo Japan, just imported back to the UK by us. Great Service history, all records on file. HPI checked and clear.

In the spring of 1996, Volvo introduced a new high-performance Volvo 850 as a replacement for the hugely successful limited edition T-5R. Volvo decided there should be no direct successor to the T-5R, but due to its success, Volvo decided to develop a new high-performance model. The new car, based on the T-5R, was called the 850 R, which again came in either saloon or sport wagon editions.

The only colours available were Bright Red, Black Stone, Dark Grey Pearl, Dark Olive Pearl, Turquoise Pearl and Polar White. In the U.S. market only Bright Red, Polar White and Black Stone were available. Cream yellow was discontinued for the 850 R. The saloon featured a newly designed rear spoiler; spoiler was now standard on the estate. The interior upgrades included bucket style heavily bolstered 'sport' front seats (alcantara centre with leather bolsters), alcantara door cards, 2-tone leather steering wheel, stainless steel '850' kick plates and R branded over mats. A 200w amplifier was also added to the 8-speaker audio system as was the option to have an SC-805/815 in-dash CD player (some markets).

This particular example is a GRADE 4 example. One of the highest possible condition grades for a vehicle of this age. All original panels, no repair or accident damage. Any inspection welcome.

Standard Spec: Usual Volvo 850 R 2.3 Estate Automatic. Too much to list. Please contact us for full details.

A rare find. Very proud to have sourced this vehicle. Becoming increasingly collectable. Vehicle will undergo a large service by Volvo specialist. Would make a great part of any collection. Totally standard, as from the factory. Any inspection welcome.
