Every now and then we like to throw a fast Swede into the mix. Case in point this Volvo V70R estate. We’re all fans of fast five doors here at GCFSB, and of those that have appeared in the last decade, this is one of my all time favorites. In recent years, Volvo has been able to kick a bit of its staid demeanor it has been known for over the years by introducing more aggressive styling and a bit of performance into the mix. Available also as a sedan, the V70R is powered by a 2.5 liter, turbocharged inline five cylinder engine. In stock form, this engine cranked out 296 horsepower driving all four wheels. With Brembo brakes and a multi mode suspension, this makes for one aggressive family hauler. This particular 6-speed manual V70R is for sale in New York and has a low 25,000 miles on the clock. In addition, performance modifications have this estate putting out 360 horsepower.
6 speed manual. This is a 2006 V70R awd turbocharged wagon. Go ahead and look here on autotrader or anywhere else and see if you’ll find a manual with only 25,000 miles on it. Car is in excellent condition and very well maintained. Pop up navigation screen, built in Bluetooth, rear back up sensors, moonroof, rear wing, navy blue leather make these combinations one of the rarest V70R in the United States. Dealer serviced with all paperwork, original window sticker, never been in a accident and Flawless paint on the car. Some wear on the drivers seat that’s it. Tires have about 90 percent tread on them. Mobile 1 synthetic oil used. ECU tune, downpipe, exhaust and ams filter blackout mesh grill and lowering springs installed at Mitchell Volvo motors in Connecticut where the car was purchased new. Performance mods where warrantied threw Mitchell Volvo as a participating evolve/elevate dealership. Puts the horsepower around 360 and torque 380. This car is one of a kind period. My price has very little room for negotiation. If your serious about the wagon please call the number. Emails will not be answered.
It’s true that this could be the lowest mileage V70R 6 speed manual estate on offer, but the price is a bit far reaching. The best V70R estate will probably bring somewhere between $17,000 to $22,000 on a good day. But, the seller’s tone seems to indicate he’s not going to move on price. Unless someone really has to have a V70R estate with a 6 speed manual, this car will probably stay on the market for a bit of time. Money no object, this is a car that is square in my radar and is one that I could conceivably use as the answer to the age old question: “if you could only choose one car to drive for the rest of your life, what would it be?”
