One of only two of these we've got on the register - and well I suppose prices have gone a bit crazy.. It wasn't that long ago that you would get these for under $15k easily - not that they came up that often, but this one at the time of offering (2022 - March) was asking $35,000. Rare and with 220KW of power and AWD there's a lot to love about these classic Volvos..
At the time the car was offered (see the original ad on carsales here), the seller made the following comments:
'm the third owner of the Car and I took ownership when it was at 150k. I've got the full history of the car and over half its life its been used as a daily driver in the South West. Since the Car's been in my possession I've made tasteful performance and handling related modifications along with preventative maintenance all outlined below. The car has installed a Snabb Ultimate FMIC with charge piping kit, a Forge CBV came next, then a 3" Snabb Race DP (catless), a custom 3 catless exhaust and a Snabb 3 turbo intake pipe. The brake lines have been upgraded to stainless steel lines (HEL) along with Custom Forged and Slotted Adams Rotors and Akebono brake pads at 175,000kms. Next was a huge task when replacing the Angle gear with a very low km second hand one, we also installed a new Sprung organic XClutch and Quaife QDF14J ATB which makes an tremendous difference in the cars handling. to finish handling improvements finally came the KW v2 Coilovers which lowered the car approx 15mm with room to go further along with OEM+ solid strut mounts to replace the rubber bushings. To get the car ready for its Stage 2+ tuning I've had an automotive performance shop install a Snow Performance Water Methanol injection kit to help cool intake temperatures and the Snabb upgraded airbox with MAF and Swedesource airfilter. Please contact me directly to enquire about the tuned features from Hilton. Replacement angle gear collar has been replaced with a genuine Volvo one, and it has had new front wheel hubs installed too. For preventative maintenance, I have also replaced the TCV and Fuel Pressure Sensor with genuine Volvo ones, and the top engine mount has been replaced with a genuine newer style square one. The Ignition Coilpacks have also been replaced with the OEM Bosch packs. I'm happy to provide listed works for everything done at the Volvo service center. The car is fitted with an aftermarket head unit with a genuine Volvo double din facia included reverse camera and both front and rear dashcams.The original headunit with phone module is included in the sale so you can easily swap back to that if you prefer. For further interior work the Volvo dealership have installed a Short throw shifter and I've had both front seats and center console fully restored by a strongly recommended professional and now they're looking brand new. The car has an Instagram with 61 posts and 850 followers. All photos for the car can be found here @flash_green_s60r There isn't another manual R (or R at all) on Carsales/Gumtree at the time of posting. This is one of approximately 12 manual S60R/V70R's that came to Australia, and as you can see this example is in the R specific paint color Flash Green.
