Detailed description

Rare oportunity to acquire what must be the best V70R Phase 3 model currently available.We are delighted to offer this stunning late runout 2000 model V70R AWD PH3 for sale.Having covered a mere 23,588 miles from new complete with a full Volvo service history and documentation and in near new condition throughout this example will quite possibly be a one off,the only V70R we've seen in Japan with ultra low miles in the 3 years of supplying these vehicles,examples like this will now be very expensive at dealers in Japan as they are now becoming more recognized as modern classics.

Presented in striking metallic silver in completely standard form with no modifications this is one for the true Volvo enthusiast who appreciates that it is quite unique.Having driven this example we can report it literally looks,feels.smells and drives as new with a tightness and togetherness feeling that only comes with an ultra low miles unabused example such as this,it's the nicest example we've driven by far,not comparable in any way to a worn high miles UK market car.As pictures show this is a car that's got arrow straight lines on it's flanks and underneath remains in remarkable condition..There are zero pin dents, which is a testimony to the care this car's had. It's so well preserved throughout it still maintains a box fresh appearance some 18 years after it rolled off the production line in Gothenburg,Sweden.

Interior as pictures show is virtually as new showing no appreciable wear and a lovely 'matte' patina throughout.The heated leather/alcantara diamond stitched seats are among the most comfortable ever fitted to a road car and simply superb on a long journey, there are no cigarette burns or stains either. Ashtray has had no use and cigar lighter shows no signs of use indicating a non-smoker 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 as new, indicating this car wasn't used for load carrying purposes.

Powered by Volvo’s strong and reliable 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.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.It’s evident this V70R has always been kept under a car port or garaged by its previous owner and was very well cared for throughout it’s time in Japan. The metallic silver paint looks fantastic with a deep lustre which gives this V70R an understated classy look,it simply goes about its business under the radar and does’nt shout about the fact that it is essentially a near 300bhp 4WD performance estate car!

V70R AWD's are superb to drive,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.Interior is squeak and rattle free and the whole feeling is of a car that is incredibily solid and surefooted.If you are looking for a fast and practical eye catching estate to cover all bases this stunning V70R could be the perfect choice.With a new list price in 2000 of nearly £38,000 this example represents an excellent prospect for the future.

Complete with its original supplying Volvo dealer manuals and a full service history this example had it's timing belt replaced at 27,985km.It has clearly been extremely well cared for by its previous Japanese owner who aside from having it serviced at Volvo also used renowned Volvo specialist IPD for checkups etc.Four matching Michellin Pilot Sport 3 tyres are fitted with near new levels of tread.
