Alliteration: that great quirk of our language that allows words of the same letter to form together in a descriptive manner, for example a Gorgeous Green Gallery, or a Fierce Fiery Fox. For Volvo this is also true (and it is a credit to them) that quintessentially one immediately things Big Boxy & Beautiful. This is certainly the case with the 850: Volvo’s gorgeous tour de force which single handedly wrote the term load lugger.

The 850 was beautifully designed by Jan Wilsgaard and ran from 1991 through to 1996, albeit the estate version you see here didn't arrive until 1993 (making our example a more sought after early one). It marked a series of firsts for the company including the introduction of a transversely mounted 5 cylinder power house driving the front wheels and also the now famous SIPS (Side Impact Protection System). Other innovations showcased at this time such as the Delta Link rear axle and the clever built in childs booster seat which folded down from the rear armrest …. the car perfectly embodied Volvos already strong reputation for making strong reliable and technologically advanced machines capable of undertaking goliath mileages.

Bradley James Classics are super proud to be able to bring you this truly lovely cherished shining silver example you see before you today. The first remarkable thing you must discover about this wonderful example is the fact that this GLT has only ever had the one driver from new: it was bought at 3 months old as a demonstrator from the local Volvo dealership and it has been cosseted by its single owner since - there cannot be many left today that can boast such an enviable ownership record surely.

Starting on the button, the 2. 0 20V unit moves the car beautifully down the road with a level of refinement that only a 5 cylinder can provide you with. A rock solid example underneath having always been garaged and seldomly used in bad weather, it boasts a matching set of Pirelli P6000’s also. 116, 000 careful miles on her clock which is actually incredibly low for one of these which can often be seen advertised with well in excess of 200, 000 miles. Another incredible feature of the car is the fact that it has only ever been serviced and repaired at the supplying Volvo dealer and boasts a fully stamped up Volvo history: a clear indication of how this car has been truly cherished.

The paintwork is remarkably good and the car is free from any evident corrosion. There are of course the odd mark and pencil ding commensurate with any car approaching 30 years of age but it has faired impeccably well.

Inside the beautiful condition continues with a boot area that has never seen a hard life like many of its counterparts will have, it has always has a Volvo load liner fitted to protect the carpeting. The Tonneau cover is present and correct and one can almost hear it chuckling as it approaches Ikea at the fact it wont be phased by anything you could want to carry. Open any door and one is met with a wonderfully fresh and tight interior that looks exactly now as it did in 1994 - even the little childs booster seat still works perfectly. The car has been absolutely loved and cared for throughout.

Full bookpack and huge history come with the car as do the there sets of original keys along with supplying dealer front and rear plates.

In short this Sexy Swede is a remarkable Volvo 850 GLT estate which has been cosseted by a single owner and sporting a supplying dealer full Volvo history. We would advise to be quick if you are interested in becoming this cars next custodian as she surely will not be in stock for very long.
