The first generation V70 was an improved development on the basis of the 850 estate. Its overall design became more rounded doing away with the 850's square edges. Among the many changes were a completely revised front end, fully painted bumpers and side trim and clear indicator lenses all around. Most of the interior was redesigned, with new seats, door panels and dashboard. According to Volvo a total of 1800 changes were made. Standard equipment was improved significantly with remote central locking, heated and electrically adjustable mirrors, two front- and two side airbags, power brakes with ABS and power windows being standard on every car. In all markets more powerful versions received better or upgraded standard equipment. The T5 and R were the series high-performance models.

This V70 R with 250 bhp is the wolf in sheep’s clothing version of the ever-popular family car. Originally registered on the 1st August 1998 this estate version presents well in metallic red with a contrasting black leather and Alcantara trim. The look is enhanced with roof rails, five spoke alloy wheels, a roof spoiler, and mudguards. This two owner example is described as being both fun and practical. Offered without reserve this Swedish icon deserves consideration. Consigned by Dominic Lake.
