In 1996, Volvo released the 850R, a high performance wagon to mirror the success of the previous T5-R. These estates gained a reputation for their speed despite being spacious, unassuming family cars with high levels of practicality. Road and Track magazine noted that the 850R accelerated from 0-60 mph in just 7.3 seconds, whilst the brakes took the car back to stationary in only 100 ft.
The current owner, a Volvo enthusiast, has owned the car for the last 19 years. It is now their second car so hence the reason for sale. This is the ultimate model of 850R that Volvo made after successfully competing in and finally winning the British Touring Car Championship in 1998.
850R models are beginning to accumulate in value, with the manual estate being the most desirable combination. This car comes with an MOT until July 2019 and is an opportunity not to be missed!
