1996 Volvo 850 R Sedan

A relatively low km example of the performance Volvo sedan of the 90s - the 850 R. This one was advertised on carsales.com.au in March 2022. asking $18,400 AUD - not a bad price considering relatively low Ks, and we've seen several over $20K recently. Stands out from the standard model with the red paint - very cool. See the original advertisement here.

I the original advertisement the seller made the following comments: The car presents extremely well for age, 135,000kms ,original paint , deep gloss minor scuff on front bumper the rear wing is abit dull. Car runs really well , the 5pot turbo pulls beautifully through the rev range and shifts smooth as it should lovely group B sound. No knocks or squeaks from suspension and handles like it’s on rails as Porsche intended when they developed this car. Pulls up as it should too. Very original car no modifications other than a K&N panel filter. All electrics work as they should, electrical Ariel working well original stereo has really quality acoustics. Power windows, power mirrors, cruise control , powered seats with memory tech. Interior is in great condition factory 850r floor mats the alacantra / leather R sport seats present well. Car has two keys and factory books and Haynes service manual as pictured. Stamp book is missing unfortunately however Stickered in engine bay for timing belt replacement a few years ago.
