We have a thing for fast wagons here at GCFSB. While this Volvo V70R doesn’t hail from Germany it does possess the right qualities to be featured among some of our favorite German muscle. The V70 has been a staple for hauling families and groceries for over fifteen years. What many people seem to forget is the second generation model came available as a 300hp, AWD estate that had the ability to leave many Porsche Boxster owners shocked at the stop light. This particular Baltimore wagon is a 2007 that came with the row-your-own 6-speed and looks to be in good condition.
Engine: Turbo Inline -5
Transmission: 6-Speed manual
Owner is quick and to the point:
2007 Volvo V70R, 300 hp, 6-speed manual, black sapphire metallic, tan leather interior, 84,500 mi, brand new Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires, new angle gear, professionally detailed inside and out, well maintained, must see
I love the R wagons and tried tirelessly to get my dad to look at one when they came out in 2004. He ended up with the normally-aspirated 2.4 I5 and loved it for the cargo and fuel economy but I know deep down he wished he had opted for the thrilling R.
Black Sapphire paint adds to the stealth fighter attitude of this R while the tan leather is somewhat less desirable and looking faded in the pictures. There are some standout styling features such as the unique shifter design, blue gauges and gorgeous 18” Pegasus alloys that I’ve been trying to source for my 9-3 for over a year now. That being said, $21,000 is way too much for a 2007 with close to 85K on the clock let alone the lower mileage V70Rs. KBB has this one priced between $14-15K which is reasonable but I think $13.5K is the right price given repair costs that give BMWs a run for their money and start to creep up at this mileage.
