Detailed description

We are delighted to offer this stunning Laser blue V70R AWD for sale.With a mere 58,311 miles from new and in beautiful rust free condition throughout and previously enthusiast owned in Japan this V70R features some great upgrades which make this car quite unique which will be very hard to repeat.

This example is fitted with forged 17" BBS RG-R alloy wheels in umarked condition fitted with new 215/45 ZR17 sports tyres all round.Suspension features high quality uprated Sachs shock absorbers at the front with lowering springs all round to give a tight controlled ride while remaining supple for everyday use.Clearly not wanting to skimp on safety the previous owner also fitted FBR 6-pot calipers up front with fully floating discs/bells plus braided hoses to ensure this car will stand on its nose when required.Exhaust has also been uprated and features a high quality full stainless steel cat back system to ensure quick escape of gases combined with the classic five cylinder sound yet remaining muted and drone free for everyday driving.The front headlamps have been uprated to projector units which are not only great looking but give a great spread of light for night driving.Our partners at Newera imports have driven this example in Japan and report it drives beautifully and is of the best V70R's we've driven with the desirable upgrades fitted,we're very taken with this example!

As pictures show this is a car that's got pin straight lines on it's flanks and underneath remains completely rust free.There are zero pin dents, which is a testimony to the care this car's had. It's so well preserved throughout, it still looks near new some 17 years after it rolled off the production line. Interior as pictures show is in fantastic condition throughout showing minimal wear and a great patina.The heated leather/alcantara diamond stitched seats are in superb condition, there are no cigarette burns or stains either. Ashtray has had virtually no use and cigar lighter shows no signs of use so we believe this was a non-smoker's car. Floor mats are also in excellent condition, which indicates to us that this car was mainly used in the city and the carpet on the boot floor is still like new, indicating this car wasn't used for load carrying purposes.

Powered by Volvo’s superb 2.4L VVT five pot B5244T2 engine producing 265bhp and 258Ibs ft torque channelled through an adaptive 5 speed automatic gearbox and an  advanced four wheel drive system the V70R AWD is an immensely capable car in all weathers.Launched in May 1997 to replace the outgoing 850R the V70R is considered by many to be one of the best fast estates of the 90’s.This phase 3 model Volvo V70R AWD is a superb all round performance car capable of  handling the weekly shop with ease and then reaching over 150mph where conditions allow.It has been owned & used since new only on Japan's salt-free & pristinely maintained roads. Paintwork is visibly stunning on this example. Highly reflective with a deep glossy shine, its evident this V70R has always been kept under a car port or garaged by its previous enthusiast owner and was cared for throughout it’s time in Japan. The Laser blue paint is the most sought after colour of all on these and suits this car very well looking rather purposeful for a modern classic Volvo.

V70R AWD's are fantastic to drive and hide there bulk incredibly well feeling light on there toes despite being a large estate,handling is taut,steering feeling is great and the 4WD provides immense security in all weathers. the charismatic 5-pot 20V engine is smooth and powerful and provides plenty of overtaking punch when needed,the 5-speed adaptive automatic gearbox shifts smoothly and precisely and is a real pleasure to use,just smooth refined progress.Interiors are squeak and rattle free and the whole feeling is of a car that is incredibily solid and surefooted.If you looking for a fast and practical eye catching estate to cover all bases in your day to day life this beautiful V70R could be the pefect choice.Costing £38,000 when new in 2000 and fitted with desirable extra's this car is alot of estate for the money!

Supplied with original manuals and service history this example had it's timing belt replaced at 57,905km, well before it was worn out.It has clearly been very well cared for by it’s previous enthusiast owner.Overall condition is fantastic and we are confident this car will go to someone who truly appreciates the Phase 3 V70R and wants the very best.Only around 500 Phase-3 models of the V70R were ever made for sale (for worldwide supply incl. the U.S.) and with only around 70 of those sold in the UK, these are rare cars on the road nowadays.We get alot of enquiries about these great cars when we manage to find one so we highly recommend reservation to avoid dissapointment.Teaming up with our partners,Newera Imports who are permanently based in Japan on the ground we are always in the best position to locate and hand pick the very best Japan has to offer.
