Don't know a lot about that trim level.

A guy I used to work with had one. I think it was a 2001 S40 "T5". Can see what I think is a T5 badge under S40 in one of the photos.
I don't think there was anything special about it other than trim, but may be wrong.
It was an automatic transmission.

Always liked that color.

T4 for the S series since they used four cylinders. Similar badge.

If I'm interpreting this correctly it is a pair, one S40 and one V40 in the same area. Smacks of a custom order ...

Got it: It is Volvo paint code 248, Panama yellow.
That is if it is yellow, take a look at 344 Desert Wind Metallic.

Different model, but the 2001-2002 S60 also had a pretty unique color available (unfortunately abandoned later on), the Maya Gold (not to be confused with with Lunar Gold or Ash Gold - don't even know if these two aren't the same color). The Maya Gold looks even better in real life with a strong metallic yellow/gold color to it
