1996 Volvo 850 T-5R Euro 5-door wagon in Dark Olive Pearl (Paint Code 421) finish with the original Graphite Leather and Grey Alcantara interior.  Volvo designed the limited edition T-5R after competing in the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship) with a race tuned 850 series estate.  When Volvo announced the news it would be racing an estate for the 1994 season, many thought it was a joke.  Although when it was race time… Volvo’s wagon held its own.  Over 716,903 Volvo 850 series were built but few quality T-5R examples are still exist.  Volvo only sold 19 Dark Olive Pearl wagons to the United States but all of them featured an automatic transmissions.  This wagon has the 2.3L (2319 cc) B5234TT5 transverse mounted Straight-5 cylinder motor and a 5-speed manual transmission.  The turbocharged and intercooled 5 cylinder was capable of 222 hp and 240 lb/ft with Bosch Motronic 4.3 engine management.  This wagon has been properly modified to way surpass the factory output with an estimated 300+ hp.

The Wagon’s factory features include power locks, power windows, power mirrors, cruise control, traction control, sunroof, power heated seats, disc brakes, rear wiper, rear defrost, and side marker lights.  The gauge cluster consists of a speedometer, tachometer, fuel, temp, and boost.  From the drivers cockpit you find the delicate balance of speed, comfort, and safety.  An aftermarket older Kenwood DVD GPS Touchscreen Head Unit, Focal 130VRS 5.25″ Speakers, and GAS Alpha 4×100 Amplifier are installed but currently the touchscreen is not working (to be repaired prior to sale).  The AC is not working due to the AC Condenser has been removed.

Upgrades included:

Upgraded Aluminum Intercooler
Silicone Intercooler Hoses
52mm Boost Gauge
Sound Deadening
StopTech Brakes (new pads front and rear installed)
Quaife Limited Slip Differential (recently serviced)
OZ Racing 18″ Alleggerita HLT Black Painted Wheels
Larger Aftermarket Dump Pipe
Custom Exhuast
KW Coilover Kit
Poly Engine Bushings
Strut Tower Brace

We have this car in our shop and will be going through to review the timing belt, water pump, clutch and any other maintenance items that will need to be repaired prior to the auction.  This is a very rare and unique wagon that should be fun and reliable for the next owner.

Please note that this will not meet CA emissions and as such will either need to be a out of state buyer or by a dealer.
