"In good condition, this unusual model. Throughout the years, there have been three different owners. Recently inspected"


The car was ordered brand new by Volvo's CEO in Germany. It was taken to Sweden by the current owner's brother-in-law in the late summer of 2003. The current owner purchased the car in February 2004. Over the years, there have only been three owners!
It has a sunroof, original R fabric mats, an electric antenna, electric front seats (driver's seat with memory), front seat heating, AC, and an original stereo with changer (3 discs in front and 6 discs in the luggage). The car was ordered with the very unusual 2.75-inch accessory exhaust system Remus. Aside from that, the adjustable yellow Koni has shock absorbers (with adjustable hardness), an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a rear window curtain. The car also has an XC grille, but the original chrome grille is still present and is included. The car's service book and booklet are, of course, in its suede case.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Due of a lack of time, it has been sitting in the garage for the past four years. At 16000 km, the clutch and flywheel were replaced. The car just got a thorough service in which all filters, fluids, and belts, including the timing belt (seen in the photo), were replaced to verify that everything is in good working order. The wheels are authentic. Brake discs and calipers have been blasted and painted in the same color scheme. Due to dispersed light, the headlights were updated 5 years ago. and the driver's seat leather has been reconditioned

  • Interior condition:

    To complement the car's leather / alcantara seats, the armrests and gaiters for the gear lever and handbrake have been changed from T5 / R to suede. The gear lever knob has also been replaced with a new leather one, as seen on the R model (original gaiter and armrests are included).
    The driver's seat leather has been reconditioned.

  • Exterior condition:

    The automobile has also been restored both inside and out, and the front bumper has been repainted as a result of an injury. The hood has minor stone chips, and the lower wheel arches have a slight dent from running with larger wheels (see photos). After a parking damage, the driver's door was repainted, and you can observe a little tint variation in some lights.

  • General condition:

    The car has been well maintained and updated over the years. However, all original details have been preserved for those who wish to restore the car totally in its original form as it rolled out of the factory.
