1995 Volvo 850 T5R

I ordered this Beautiful T5R special edition, one of 1200 manufactured (Note the X in the VIN, only the original cars had this), in 1994 at the Paris auto show, When it arrived in Germany in early 1995, I flew there and drove it around Europe for six weeks, then shipped it home to Oregon where it has never seen a salted road and has always been garaged or stored. On the autobahn it easily reached 175 mph, zero to 100 kph in 5.2 seconds.
The original special suspension has been upgraded with Stage 3 IPD Bilstein shocks/struts, drilled rotors, stainless brake lines, huge sway bars, tower brace, lowering coils.
Engine mods: MSD ignition, intake system, stainless exhaust, all red silicon hoses, and IPD CPU flash.
Belts were changed at 60K, oil is changed every 3K, brake fluid every 3 years and antifreeze every five years.
The odometer reads in KM (Kilometers) so the miles on it are multiplied by 0.6 to get miles which is 57k approx.
I will supply the original German license plate,the original T5grrr plate which it wore while being tested for the Oct 1996 issue of European car magazine and the 1996 IPD catalog which featured this car and my Volvo 544 on the cover and inside. The magazines and catalog come with the car.
The interior is as new and smells new as shown in the photos.
Some professional repainting has been done due to scratches while stored but the finish is good.
Everything works well, performs well. Tires are at 50% average. This has been an extremely reliable car and absolutely sings on the highway, handles like a dream and has great power. It has traction control and a multi mode transmission that absolutely snaps from gear to gear, it will break traction at 60 mph. Oh, and a freshly laundered soft cover is supplied as well.
