Drool moment: rare car for sale

Post by oragex » Sat Jul 07, 2018 9:15 am

As seen on another Volvo forum (swedespeed.com) this seems to be a one of a kind occasion (I am not/don't know the seller)

I looked at an '06 with 35k a couple years ago and considered that exceptionally low miles for the age. I intended to buy it but messed up and didn't put $ to hold the car overnight. Another buyer snapped it up first thing in the morning before I got back to the dealer. But that was listed for $7500 +TT. $14,9 pretty high even considering the mileage - it won't sell right away as most buyers considering an 11 year old car probably won't have that much cash on hand to buy it outright/ ~$10k down payment if trying to finance.

Nice R cars will only increase in value. As with all cars, the more rare the options it has, the better the appreciation. Look for Atacama interior, manual transmission, low miles, clean title with provenance.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

That's strange. I'm on my phone so this is the best I can do when it comes to posting pictures.

They're asking roughly $43k USD.

The 850 has 44,000 km or 27,000 miles, less per year than the S60. And it's the first R, in much more iconic as a collector's car. That S60R I'd make a daily driver, probably not that T5-R.
'95 854 T5-R, Motronic 4.4, 185k
'96 855 NA, 145k
'98 S70 NA, 220k (living out west)
'98 V70, T5 tune-injectors-turbo, LPT engine, 285k
'06 S60 R, 165k
'99 Camry V6 :shock: 125k
gone: '96 NA 850 210k, '98 NA V70 182k

Agreed 100%. That 850 is the top of the top of collectible Volvos. For those wondering why this 850 is so valuable, here's why Cream Yellow 850 T-5R.
