Volvo 850 R


Made legendary by the British Touring Car Championship in the late 90s, the Volvo 850 R is the stuff of legend.

Presented in bright red, our awesome manual saloon is in remarkable condition despite its 163k miles.

The car present extremely well and boasts the usual upgrades including 17″ alloy wheels, bucket style bolstered ‘sport’ front seats (alcantara centre with leather bolsters), alcantara door cards, and stainless steel kick plates. 

Unlike many that have been heavily tuned, this one is in largely standard spec – perhaps OEM Plus – and has had a great deal spent in the past couple of years to keep it perfect, including a full head cloth replacement by Conlon Coach Trimmers.

The car also had a major service using Millers performance oils for the engine and gearbox. Along with this the brakes were refreshed, a new fuel filter and a full complete pcv system with new intake manifold gasket and a coolant flush. A full turbo-back Ferrita exhaust system with sports cat was fitted, too.

A Do88 intercooler with do88 rip kit and K&N panel filter were also fitted and the car was tuned by MTE to suit.

It was not just the engine that was treated to a thorough check over, either. A M56 gearbox with gripper lsd and new diff bearings were fitted with new drive shaft seals and rear main oil seal also. A new ttv flywheel and new genuine Volvo 850 clutch kit with hydraulic release bearing conversion were also replaced. 

To finish the job, BC coil overs with adjustable drop links were fitted to suit. New genuine volvo wishbones complete and poly bushed, steering rack bushings,solid subframe bushings,poly torque mounts and a genuine volvo front strut brace. To finish the job braided brake lines and pads were also fitted. 

A genuine OEM plus 850 R is a really special thing and one in this condition is something that doesn’t come around that often, too.

Viewing strictly by appointment. All cars supplied with valid NCT where appropriate.
