FOR SALE; Unicorn Manual R with LSD

Limited Slip Differential, Bosch Motornic 4.4 ECU, Antilock-Braking System (ABS), Traction Control Systems (TRACS), Sport suspension with self-leveling rear shock absorbers, Cruise control, OBC, Electric windows, Electric heated mirrors, Volvo Guard alarm with remote control, Front fog lights, Electronic climate control (ECC), Leather & Amaretta (suede) upholstery and steering wheel, Heated electric memory seats, Volvo SC-801 double-din radio, Burled Black Walnut trim on dashboard and floor console, Leather gearknob, Electric sunroof, Child booster seat, 4 airbags (driver, passenger and SIPS sidebags),17-inch Volan wheels

Draped in signature Olive Green metallic, this stunning R shows a delicious gold flake throughout having been carefully prepared by our in-house team. The body kit free of blemishes or signs of previous repair while the black plastic inserts are particularly susceptible to fading and present consistently well around the car.

Sunroof cassette is in again in good shape whilst surrounding trim to the windows and windscreen feel soft, supple and fit as they should. The R badge to the rear signs off this homologation special perfectly.

In typical fashion the cabin space belies its age and mileage – the leather / alcantara combination has remarkably managed to remain both durable and delicate to touch. The dash fascia remains completely standard with a rich array of options from new; Heated Seats, Cruise and Climate control all working as they should. Pride of place; the gearknob and surround show no hard signs of use and present beautifully in keeping with the rest of the interior space.

Green 850 scripted carpets match the body colour to the grey footwells, with the usual lashings of burled black walnut trim crack free and offering a consistent shine throughout. The boot space is cavernous and has been well kept over the years.

Start up procedure cracks the Inline 5 into life before settling to that renowned warble that reassuringly drums through the cabin. A sound many of us (and the dog) are familiar with!

The connection with the car is totally elevated by the 5 speed box. Mated to a heavy duty clutch, with an LSD governing torque to the front wheels, the car’s performance can be truly explored with a feedback and intimacy not found in the Auto variant.

Whether climbing the revs or wafting along on a wave of torque, the Manual certainly offers another dimension to an already compelling all round package.

The Iconic Volan wheels present unmarked wrapped in matching Yokohama tyres showing plenty of tread.

Brakes are adequately matched to the performance, with plenty of disc and pad material remaining.

Delivered new to Japan in May of 1996 this R has been pampered handsomely throughout its 20 years.

Having just returned from esteemed Independent garage PGI in Farnham the car is fresh from a major service inclusive of timing belt kit and auxiliary belt replacement.

With all UK taxes paid the car is ready to register immediately into the first UK owners name.

Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.

The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
