Volvo T5-R M
Genuine Volvo 850 T5-R Auto 1995 M saloon (one of 2000 produced for the touring car racing Volvo needed to produce so they could enter). This is denoted by the original 5 spoke Titan alloys and special badge on the boot. A few people get these confused with the later T5R which had the seven spoke alloys.
I’ve owned the car for the last 8 or so years and in that time it’s hardly done any mileage. As a guide I had the wheels refurbed 6 years ago and had new Pirelli tyres fitted, these are still on the car with nearly full tread.
I’ve had it 8, nearly 9 years and it’s got 59,000 on the clock. This can’t be verified though as the counters do not work, an easy fix but just never got round to it. In all those years I’ve probably done about 10k in it. 3 owners prior to me and was a genuine Volvo import.
Plus side, good engine and all as standard, nothings been mucked about with. Good brakes, tyres etc. Goes like [email protected]@@ of a shovel.
Desirable and rare as not many left now, 22, I think at the last count. Large history file of repairs, MOT’s etc. Current MOT until May 2019.
Not so plus points. Gearbox needs looking at, clonks a bit from 1-2.
Sunroof goes up but doesn’t slide back, Seat adjusters need looking at as sometimes work. Again, both easy fixes for someone with time on their hands.
A few little panel repairs carried out previously etc. and some paint work will be required.
Generally a good car but a few issues as with any 23 year old car. I’m trying to be as honest as I can as a genuine Volvo officinardo will no doubt see the good and bad points in the car.
I’ll be sad to see it go as had great plans for it but time and work just doesn’t allow it. It needs to go to someone who will appreciate it for what it is.
