1998 Volvo V70R Estate

A proper Q-car, discreet load-lugging turbocharged fun; finished in Saffron with half suede/leather; automatic and in attractive order throughout


The V70R was Volvo’s understated successor to the perhaps even more outrageous 850 T5R, popular with traffic cops as undercover Q-cars during the ‘90s with their discreet looks and spanking acceleration. As a first phase car from October 1998, this striking example is finished in Saffron and features the 2.3 turbocharged five-pot mated to automatic transmission which develops 237bhp. With a superior spec, the R models offered half suede and leather interior with diamond stitching and upgraded stereos, electric heated seats, blue gauges and smart 17inch alloy wheels. This lovely example was first supplied new by Johnson Volvo of Worcester to the Postmaster of Malvern Link, before it travelled around the country with a further five owners. Our vendor searched high and low for the best example he could find, purchasing this one from a specialist dealer since when he has covered just over 12,000 trouble free and very enjoyable miles over the last two years. A truly reluctant sale, it will be sorely missed. The history file includes a service book boasting some fifteen stamps and a further two evidenced by invoices. The current MOT runs until March 2021 with no advisories and there are 13 old MOT certificates which along with the service history backs up its 158,742 miles – a walk in the park for one of these stellar beasts.
